Texworld Paris, the international trade show for fashion fabrics, trimmings, and accessories, held from September 12 to 15, 2016, at Paris-Le Bourget, managed to attract some global visitors and ended on a successful note. The expo was able to draw around 13,591 from top five countries like France, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, and Turkey.

Moroccan clothing producers who came to procure materials and trimmings at Texworld Paris numbers grew by 22 per cent this year. The American continent visitors grew up by 5 per cent with visitors from Latin America and Mexico.

This season’s show marked an interest in the fashion services adjoining the actual exhibition. The General Forum designed by Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud set the tone and trends for the 17-18 autumn/winter season with its theme of polarity.

Exhibitors observed an increase in the number of contacts they made thanks to the forums dedicated to specific segments: those of Denim and Elite in particular drew enthusiastic customers towards businesses. All rounded off with a relevant presentation, which was very well attended, and a Pantone presentation on colours, visitors accumulated plenty of information, fashion inspiration to help make their choices, which they could verify using the free trend book.

The show was marked by the high calibre of meetings, productive discussions that were open and informal and sometimes extended, having led to business transactions.

Texworld Paris presented the ELITE segment for the very first time. It groups the companies which are most responsive and able to arrange for customised services. Exhibitors applauded the atmosphere and the wealth of dedicated services, as well as the elegant and discreet backdrop in the ELITE space with light panels from Dacryl, decorated by Olivier Lapidus. Closed stands allowed the discretion desired by exhibitors for this concept, which is intended to maximise buyers’ visiting time. (GK)
