Labo Ethnik 2014 ”Labo Ethnik Fashion and Lifestyle Show”, which is now heading into its 8th year, is one of the biggest international trade shows with over 100 fashion designers and lifestyle artists participating from around the globe.
This year, Labo Ethnik was held at Cite de la Mode in Paris, France, and took place from May 22 to the 26th.
