Texworld and ApparelSourcing have come to a close, having seen 13 400 pass through their doors, meaning a slight drop of 3.3% compared with last February's show.

The level of visitors from European countries remains stable. Nonetheless a significant drop in visitors from Turkey and the Netherlands, which the organizers cannot understand, and from Italy. Countries like Greece, Belarus and Japan, as well as countries in the Arab region saw a considerable increase.

The exhibitors, arriving with some apprehension given the situation of the European economy, departed satisfied and reassured by the prospects and stable condition of the market.

They appreciated the buzz of creativity that is evident there and that also filters through to the ranges on offer, matching up to the expectations of an ever-more discerning fashion industry.“

The exhibition also presented trends in the three areas dedicated to end use for the first time: Attractive Spirit for women, Strict Essence for men and Casual View for the world of casual wear.
