Texworld to discover young talent thru 'Designers & Fashion'

Texworld will be continuing with its “Designers & Fashion” project next 14-17 September 2009 at Paris Le Bourget and expanding it with participation by a specialist jury from the world of fashion in order to choose the best candidate portfolios.

Since last year the organisers at Texworld have offered a space at the show without charge that is dedicated to young graduates of fashion design schools. It is a fruitful initiative both for these young textile stylists and designers, who can present their collections, showcase their work and make contacts with exhibitors and visitors alike, and also for the latter two groups of players at Texworld who can discover and link up with young talent in this way.

Texworld, which identifies itself as an exhibition for business, is above all a special meeting place for professionals from the textiles and clothing sector, in particular on account of its international acceptance (87% international visitors, exhibitors from the whole world over). Apart from the interest in discovering new suppliers or new clients, and especially in finding superb quality products at the best prices on the market, Texworld is an effective platform for meetings in person among professionals.

By offering designers just starting out on their careers a free opportunity to present their collections and by opening its doors wide to international fashion design schools - Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France, insists on welcoming groups of students who visit the show in person - Texworld provides a major service to all the players involved, whether they are exhibitors or buyers, and by preparing for the future of the sector.

A significant service for everyone
As far as exhibitors are concerned it is a considerable service, as, frequently having come from the other side of the world, with ultra modern factories, a skilled and efficient workforce and above all with a substantial potential market, they have a need for young, talented people to assist them in interpreting the requirements of the western market, to adapt their collections and in order to develop their own staff. They are also frequently looking to improve their performance on domestic markets, and the expertise of European designers can provide them with assistance in this.

As to the visitors, it is similarly a means of discovering new talent and establishing contact with young people who represent the future of their profession, and surveys conducted at the show in this regard attest to their interest.

The various graduates or junior entrepreneurs who took part in the first projects for “Designers & Fashion” all have excellent memories of it and many cannot wait to submit their application again in order to return to Texworld.

As it is, they have received very diverse offers of help, collaboration and work placements, which may range from designing a special collection to proposals asagents in their own country and including some most original ways of helping out, like that suggested to Marie-Laure Marquet, who is going to present her designs during a show at an exhibition dedicated to organic textiles in India next October.
