Avantex Paris, the show for technical and technological products and services that provide added value for the textile industry, has chosen a group of 30 exhibitors who are representatives of the international scene. The event that merges high-tech with every sector of the fashion industry, will be held in Le Bourget, Paris from September 18-21.

The exhibitors at the show will present a panoramic view of the key segments that are linked with the amalgamation of high-tech and fashion: materials & components, prototype studio, clothing & accessories, smart retail.

“The show will emphasise ‘made in France’ and textile innovation and will set the tone at its trends forum with the materials library from MateriO’. Avantex Paris, a place to meet, trade ideas and discuss promising subjects for the development of the industry, is also been expanded with a series of targeted workshops, lectures and videos from experts in order to provide visitors with the keys and essential tools for designing and creating fashion for the future,” said Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France.

Buoyed by the success they experienced last February, Euveka, Techtera and TO & GUY are returning for the September show full of enthusiasm. An offer that is totally made in France, enhanced by the presence of CETI and the FashionTech association, said the organiser in a press release.

About 10 Taiwanese firms will present their entire collections of functional textiles in all their variety. Ecolot Textile, Her Ching Knitting, Hone-Strong, Wisher Industrial, Texxar, Excelassoc, Taiwan Taffeta Fabric, Handseltex Industrial Corporation and Liou Long Tai, La Mode Textile and Universal Textile. TTF, the organisation that is responsible for promoting eco textiles in Taiwan, will also be exhibiting. There is also Advance Hitech Textile International Corporation, the research centre that assists both Taiwanese and international business in developing extremely lightweight, ‘green’ fabrics.

South Korea, a very active player when it comes to fabrics with high added value, is extremely well positioned and the Korea Textile Development Institute, which concentrates on R&D into technical textiles in Korea, from polymers to the yarns, from functionalities to market applications, is attending to demonstrate this expertise.

Three Chinese companies are returning to the show: Suhou Tianzhuo Textile with memory shape fabrics, Shaoxing Ruisheng Textile, whose breathable laminates are windproof and rainproof and insulate against the cold, and Xiamen Eight Unita, which produces fabrics with enhanced features. The Irish firm of Glowtex and its high-intensity, long-lasting, light-emitting technology.

In keeping with its role as a beacon for innovative fashion, Avantex Paris has launched Avantex Fashion Pitch, which aims to reward ground-breaking projects from start-up businesses in the fashion, textiles and clothing industry. A major competition via the WiRATE platform aimed at start-up businesses from the textiles, clothing and fashion sector, has also been launched.

The twelve projects to obtain the best ranking will be chosen and in the next step have to present their work in the form of a pitch during Avantex. The audience and members of the WIRATE platform will be able to vote for the project that is most closely related to the show. The project with the most votes will be awarded the prize and included as an exhibitor at the February 2018 show as well as being able to record a teaser video worth €1,200. (KD)
