Around 900 select exhibitors from 35 countries are expected, with an impressive assortment of collections – roughly 700 exhibitors in COLLECTIONS and some 190 in ADDITIONALS present their textile and material innovations.
This has the organisers looking optimistically toward three inspirational trade fair days. The portfolio features a mix of select basic to high-end collections that are presented on 45,000 square meters.
The consistently positive tendency seen in the pre-seasons, with constant growth in textile and accessories manufacturers compared to the previous year, continues on. This is also proven in the continued rise in visitor numbers while the internationality has increased. With some 20,000 international trade visitors, MUNICH FABRIC START is holding ever greater appeal for visitors from the represented foreign countries.
“With a select portfolio and market-relevant areas, MUNICH FABRIC START continues to establish itself and strengthen its position as an international trade fair. The early date of the fair as a season opener, and the strong German market as a basis in the background, are additional factors that contribute to the growing international importance of Munich as an opportunity for early information,” states MUNICH FABRIC START Managing Director Wolfgang Klinder.
The German market is getting more exciting all the time, exclaims Emiliano Bonotto of the manufacturer of the same name, who already presented his collection innovations in December at the exclusive preview event VIEW in Munich. „I used to choose what I showed in Germany: highlights were generally left out and the focuswas on commercial items. Now there is much more fashion.
With “HAUTE SPORTURE” the new season is manifesting in an impressive mix of elegance and nonchalance. High-tech textiles meet clear styles; the high art of couture meets sporty influences. The creative search for new silhouettes and proportions shows up repeatedly, always with touch of casualness.
And sort of harmless hedonism accompanies all trends, implemented with a sporty elegance – transparent and clear. Next to selected contrast colours, the colour palette features undercover highlights, from pale pastels, soft beiges and shades of white to true transparents. The combination of refl ective to matt and super-soft to grainy is particularly effective combined with this uncoloured tranquillity. Earthy basics shine with a modern brilliance.
Alongside interesting new exhibitors the Marzotto Group will – after its successful participation in September – also be represented again with its complete portfolio including such brands as Marlane, Guabello, Tallia di Delfi no, Ratti, Tessitura Monti and others that further underline the high-quality range of face fabrics for menswear. Another focal theme of MUNICH FABRIC START is ADDITIONALS.
Occupying more than two exhibition halls here will be some 190 of the world’s leading suppliers of fi ndings and accessories for the apparel industry including Union Knopf, Knopf Schäfer, Fabian, Köhnen, Consortio F.I.T, AMF, Cadica Group, Swarovski, to name but a few. With in excess of 100 selected exhibitors and interesting newcomers ASIA SALON will again be showcasing developments from the Far East. Here powerhouse partners from China and Korea with a focus on quality can be met.
