Ethical Fashion Show in Paris postponed indefinitely

The next edition of the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris planned for January 2013 has been postponed indefinitely. The organisers, Messe Frankfurt, took this decision in view of the difficult situation in the French market. “There is no significant demand for a business platform oriented towards ecological, ethical and fairly produced fashions in Paris at present”, explains Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France.

The current situation in the French market has led to consideration being given to holding the former trade fair in Paris as an event for the public at another time. With the aim of increasing consumer awareness of sustainable fashions, the organisers will endeavour to stage an event of this kind at a suitable exhibition centre and at a target-group oriented time.

Independently of this, the preparations for Messe Frankfurt’s two fashion fairs during the Berlin Fashion Week are in full swing. “The trade fairs in Berlin continue to develop dynamically and we have already received numerous registrations for January 2013. We are extremely optimistic about these events”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies of Messe Frankfurt. The Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and the GREENshowroom will open their doors from 15 to 17 January 2013. Together, the two trade fairs form the main platform for eco fashions in Berlin, Germany’s fashion metropolis.

World-market leader with the focus on sustainability

Messe Frankfurt is the world’s leading organiser of trade fairs and exhibitions for the textile and textile-technology sectors. Its international trade fairs cover the value chain of the textile industry in its entirety – from apparel fabrics and fashions, via home and technical textiles, to textile processing and care – whereby, independently of developments in the French market, ecological and socially responsible production is playing an increasingly important role.

With a turnover of € 467.5 million and 1,725 employees worldwide, Messe Frankfurt is Germany’s biggest trade-fair organiser. The Messe Frankfurt Group has a global network of 28 subsidiaries and around 50 international Sales Partners, giving it a presence for its customers in more than 150 countries. Events ‘made by Messe Frankfurt’ take place at more than 30 locations around the globe.
