Messe Frankfurt France organised the first Avantex trade fair dedicated to high-tech fabrics and R&D at the Le Bourget Exhibition Centre from September 14-17, 2015.

“Avantex was perceived as a significant indicator and catalyst of an ongoing trend in the fashion industry towards more technological, more connected and multi-functional aspects,” a Messe Frankfurt press release stated.

According to Messe Frankfurt, by the evening of September 17, 13,075 visitors from 109 countries had walked through the doors of the exhibition hall.

17 exhibitors from Taiwan exhibited multifunctional fabrics, highly technical and high-performing, featuring moisture transfer, quick drying, UV protection, insulation, anti-bacterial, deodorizing and other fabrics.

Companies from China showed their specialisation in mystical motifs, while Thailand based Everest displayed products dealing with the problems of moisture and water produced with an environmentally-friendly process.

While, Microsystem Technology Centre from Belgium, German laboratory Novanex, Lenzing Innovation from Austria and French organisation Fashiontech, promoted techwear and fair trade fashion.

Swiss studio, Development Never Stops which is closely associated with Forster Rohner Textile displayed developments in luminous embroidery, and heating and smart textiles.

Dr. Jan Zimmerman, head of the textile division at Forster Rohner said, "I am grateful to Avantex because we made some very good contacts.”

“We were as close to fashion as possible, which is what we wanted as Avantex creates a link with research, while actually, fashion and research are worlds apart, each moving at their own pace, with contradictory concerns,” he added.

"We wanted Avantex to drive fashion into the future, which was exactly what fashion product designers and directors wanted,” Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France said.

“With the invaluable support of the Taiwan Textile Federation, we brought together 28 exhibitors who offered a host of techniques; encapsulation, intelligent micro systems, conductive textiles, etc,” he too added.

“We are very pleased with the general level of enthusiasm whipped up by the offer at Avantex and the associated programme of presentations which spread across all the Texworld Paris trade fairs,” Scherpe informed. (AR)
