Texworld and Apparelsourcing Paris closed their doors on Thursday evening after four days which saw visitor numbers visiting the trade fairs rising 5.16%, with 15,034 visitors from 109 countries coming to see the 2015/16 winter collections shown by 1166 exhibitors.

The highlights of the two fairs were the launch of the new "Shawls&Scarves" section, the creative “Impulsion”, the Texworld winter trends 2015/16, designer catwalk shows and ‘Sustainability Days’ and talk on responsibility of textile industry by Jason Kibbey.

"We are delighted by this rise, which could have been greater, as a lot of visitors could not attend because of strikes at Air France, however the rise confirms the movement in fashion consumption in Europe", Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt, France stressed.

“Both regular and first-time exhibitors were delighted by the amount of business done and the quality of visitors”, Messe Frankfurt said.

Bang Moy from Chinese wool company Intertextiles said, "This was our first time, so we were not expecting our collection to be so well received by European buyers, but we took a large number of orders from a few major fashion houses”.

The visitors were just as enthusiastic, particularly designers like Fred Sathal, a designer showing during Paris Haute Couture Week. "I was won over by Texworld making agreements with exhibitors to offer small quantities to couturiers. I also liked the care given to organising the fair. This initial visit enabled me to source good-quality Japanese-made silks and textiles."

Continent wise, exhibitors from Europe recorded a rise of 4.39%, while those from Asia leapt by 18.32%, from the Americas they rose marginally by 0.3%, with those from Brazil posting a double-digit increase of 10%, while visitor numbers from Africa were down 11%.

Visitor figures from the six major European countries were up, with a noteworthy resurgence from Italy of 23%, whilst recovery was evident in respect of France which was up 4%, Turkey rising by 4%, Germany going up by 3%, from Spain up by 1.5% and finally UK by 1.5%.

Asian visitors also supported the fair with the number of Japanese buyers growing by 9.5%, greatly appreciated by the exhibitors, whilst those from South Korea surged 33% and Hong Kong 21% showed higher interest, while from China they grew by 8%.

Oya Dizdaroglu of Turkish textile mill Tekstil, an exhibitor said, "We are very happy with the quality of the visitors who came to see us. We always do well at Texworld, but this time it was even better because we met a lot of new buyers, particularly from Japan, Poland and Germany." (AR)
