Munich fabric start - pre collections, registers record visitors
Jun '08
With 14,200 trade visitors (February 2007: 12,500) the German textile fair, munich fabric start - pre collections, once again registered record visitor figures at its 24th event.

In Munich the entire German ready-to-wear industry along with international designers and sourcing teams informed themselves about the early fabric and colour trends for the 2009 Spring/Summer season.

One third of visitors now come from the neighbouring countries Austria, Italy, Switzerland and the Eastern European nations.

As a result, munich fabric start has confirmed its upward trend and increasing international significance once again with its 24th event.

Fears that the trade fair frequency could have been adversely affected by the start of the event on Ash Wednesday or also by the dates of Igedo Fashion Fairs Düsseldorf, were already allayed on the first day of the event.

An “astonishingly strong showing right from the start”, was how many of the 731 exhibitors assessed the event. This trend continued.

In the Zenith Halle the 70 denim weaving mills and finishers also unanimously welcomed the restructuring of the stands. Their assessment: “A success.”

Once again munich fabric start with over 1,000 international collections in the M, O, C, and the Zenith Halle was fully booked.

“We were pushed to our limits”, said Fair Manager Wolfgang Klinder in connection with the official press conference. Even now it is becoming increasingly difficult to cater for larger firms' concept stands requirements.
