Visitor numbers flat at Munich Fabric Start

Although number of exhibitors at the just concluded Munich Fabric Start rose from the previous edition, the numbers of visitors remained flat at 19,700.

In a press release, the organisers said around 1,000 suppliers showcased over 1,600 collections through the three days of the trade show.

"We are very pleased with the continued positive development of Munich Fabric Start,” Wolfgang Klinder, CEO of Munich Fabric Start stated.

“In conjunction with View Premium Selection as Munich Fabric Start's preview event, we offer a trade fair format that accompanies the sourcing process as a holistic information and inspiration platform,” he added.

The organisers also added that the percentage of foreign visitors was slightly up and standing at 38 per cent of all visitors, while more of them from Asia, France, America, Argentina and Eastern Europe were registered.

According to the organiser, designers and buyers are looking for more innovations than ever, which entails open-mindedness for all things new and a general interest in breaking new ground.

ReFuture brought together the trend directions for A/W 16/17 and provided room for a fusion of history with visionary elements.

“This is evidenced by jersey fabrics that are used with additional high-tech functionalities such as temperature control and water-repellence as well as quick-dry properties in prêt-a-porter collections,” they informed.

“Furthermore, breathable laminates are used to prevent moisture from being absorbed while allowing existing humidity to escape,” the organisers observed.

New sportswear materials in wool blends with laminated or bonded were seen, while materials such as nonwovens in wool or ultra lightweight nylons and polyesters met with avid interest.

On display were further developments in the area of multiple finishings that are water and dirt repellent.

"For us, as a service and solutions provider new technologies for the textile sector are extremely important,” Michael Kamm, CEO Ploucquet Holding GmbH & Sympatex Technologies GmbH said.

“Particular importance is attached here to so-called smart textiles with built-in communication solutions for jackets, which will in future be seen in jobwear but also hold great potential for sportswear," he added.

The Bluezone also experienced two well-attended trade fair days offering the denim and sportswear community creativity galore with a strong portfolio of 80 brands at the Zenith Hall.

New material compositions like super-stretch versions as well as especially soft surfaces for a soft touch continue to be at the forefront of developments, which primarily revolve around wear comfort. (AR)
