760 leading textile companies register for Munich Fabric Start
With over 760 registered exhibitors Munich Fabric Start will also be as well and strongly positioned in all segments as usual for the next edition from 31 August to 2 September 2010. Ranking No. 2 now in Europe the Munich trade fair for high fashion textiles and additionals will present over 1,300 collections from fabrics to findings to kick off the A/W season 2011/2012. For the 29th event organizers Munich Fabric Start Exhibitions GmbH again expect over 15,000 buyers and designers from the apparel industry and trade.
Fresh investment in ranges and services finds expression in a packed programme. Blue Zone, the platform for denim and sportswear, has undergone a complete facelift now setting a cleaner, classier and very stylish scene for the “Who's Who” of the international denim and sportswear fabric suppliers. Forum Organic Selection, the information pool revolving around health and environment compatible textiles, will be enhanced with further services. There will be powerful, unambiguously presented trend themes, optimisations on the second floor with high-end Italian weaving mills, interesting first-time exhibitors and, needless to say, various parties to foster exchange within the industry and provide an opportunity for relaxation.
“We will be going full speed ahead,” says trade fair boss Wolfgang Klinder stressing “because we want to constantly develop further. The Blue Zone, for example, not only has an entirely new look but also a new conceptual pitch. Our concept Showrooms with Full-Packaging-Services are so successful that we have included two new companies here whose corporate organisations fit our stipulated requirements very well. Our Organic Selection segment will now be extended to include the Eco Village and to this end we will be bringing key certification bodies for the textile industry here to Munich for the first time. It is and will remain our key aim to prepare all this with the usual competence but above all in a comprehensible and efficient manner for our guests.”
This is because each season Munich Fabric Start in Munich presents the latest developments in topical high-tech textiles and fashion basics and showcases avantgarde trend highlights, off-beat denims but also sourcing and software solutions – making it one of the most important European trade fairs for the fashion industry at present.
To the tune of 60 firms will be participating for the first time now across the Collections, Additionals, Asia Salon, Showrooms and Blue Zone segments. These include Hurel, a household name for high-quality lace worldwide, Lanerie Agnona from Italy, one of the leading addresses for fine fibres and finest wool fabrics, the British weaving mill William Halstead with its carded yarn wovens as well as exquisite cashmere and mohair items and the Italian company Duca Visconti di Modrone for selected velvets, to name but one fabric. New names for the Additionals area are Brodissima embroidery from the Austrian city of Lustenau and Topak from the Czech Republic.
