The 35th Texworld trade fair, which took place in Paris from 15–18 September, 2014, saw visitor numbers rise 5.16%. The trade show welcomed 15,034 visitors from 109 countries and hosted 881 exhibitors from 28 nations.

“Buyers throughout the industry appreciate Texworld for its ability to react to demand and because of the improvements made every season. The fair demonstrated the resilience of the textile market,” said Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France.

Visitor numbers from the six major countries were up, with a noteworthy resurgence of 23% from Italy, whilst recovery was evident in respect of 4% rise from France, Turkey 4%, Germany 3%, Spain 1.5% and UK 1.5%.

Messe Frankfurt said double-digit growth from Bulgaria 64%, Norway 25%, Ireland 22% and Poland 20%, deserve a special mention.

Outside Europe, Asia and the Middle East also supported the fair, with visitors from China up 8%, South Korea 33%, Japan 9.5%, Hong Kong 21%, UAE 22%, Kuwait 50% and Lebanon up 21%. South America was represented by its two principal markets - Brazil up 10% and Argentina 33%.

Compared to the September 2013 event, the fair’s success was also reflected by the volume of business done by the exhibitors, the fairs organisers said.

The winter buying season for the wool segment was very well represented with 92 exhibitors. Suat Bali, a Turkish merchant specialising in wool for men’s suits said, “Texworld is a wonderful place for business. We were able to meet targeted buyers and get some firm orders.”

Exhibitors offering imitation fur, such as Edgar Lieven, the Managing Director of Fur Textiles Nederland, shared his enthusiasm, saying that he was very satisfied with the fair.

He said, “The market is strong, because buyers are turning to artificial fur for both financial and ethical reasons. The greatest demand was for collections with imitation raccoon, coyote and fox trim.”

Impulsion, the theme of Texworld’s winter trends for 2015/16, made a powerful impression on visitors with its insight, concept and the direction taken by the artistic directors, Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud.

They selected the most innovative fabrics and products for the main Trend Forum and for the segments of womenswear, menswear, casualwear, sportswear, eco-friendly clothing, denim and accessories. The Impulsion lectures gave professionals an opportunity to gain an understanding of the influences, codes and colours of the season.

A new seasonal tool was the Fabric Selection, a fifty-page book containing 172 striking fabrics for the winter 2015/16 season. All categories of material were represented, expressing the spirit of the season by playing with textures and reinventing prints.

The display of collections by Maël Larcher and Marie-Morgane Dumont, therespective winners of the Grand Prix Création Homme and the Prix d’encouragement at the most recent Dinard Festival of Young Fashion Designers, made a splash with their well-presented contemporary creations. (AR)
