The recently concluded trade show Munich Fabric Start, witnessed a 1 per cent year over year increase in visitor numbers, at 21,100 visitors. There were over 1,700 bold, imaginative and inspiring fabric collections and technical product developments from over 1,000 suppliers, with Keyhouse and the Bluezone, attracting a majority of buyers.

With over 100 international brands, Bluezone posted the highest numbers since its inception, both in terms of exhibitors and visitors.

One of the highlights of the broad-based supporting programme, focused on various themes at Keyhouse was trend expert Li Edelkoort's lecture. Li Edelkoort called upon the attendees to make a clear move towards emancipation, in terms of life, age and mindset, and all this, irrespective of gender.

Tintex Textiles with a breathable, cork-coated jersey won the first place of the Hightex award, followed by Soorty Enterprises whose bi-elastic denim for sport clothing got the second place, while the third place went to Thermore for the development of a heat-regulating ticking. (AR)
