Apparel Sourcing Paris, Europe’s largest trade fair for global sourcing of clothing will highlight classic styles while maintaining its offer. Apparel Sourcing and Shawls & Scarves Paris shows, from Feb 11, with 350 and 50 exhibitors respectively, will show their creations as the all-important Parisian business events for clothing and textile accessories.

Apparel Sourcing Paris, posting a 17 per cent increase in the number of exhibitors compared with February 2018, is one of the major European trade fairs for clothing production aimed at the fashion industries. It brings together companies, from entry level to high- end, and even made-to-measure, and encompasses all of ready-to-wear for men, women and children, classed according to area of expertise in fashion clothing (sportswear, evening wear, lingerie, etc.)

Shawls & Scarves Paris, the sole international trade fair dedicated exclusively to scarves and shawls, continues to forge ahead with its particular offer that is so essential to fashion brands, since the number of companies attending is very stable compared with last February’s session.

"Both these shows dedicated to finished products have been specially organised in response to demand from all the operators in the fashion industry. As we see it, it is always a question of anticipating the challenges facing the market and offering the right ranges, while providing further new discoveries of these skills, which have been spotted by our teams on every continent. We also note that the partnerships entered into with specific countries remain stable and enjoy complete confidence," said Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France, organiser.

"Our major partner the Chinese Textile International Trade Promotion Centre (CCPIT Tex) boasts an additional 118 exhibitors compared with 2018. China, of prime importance to the industry, is still the country with the largest representation at the show: 65 per cent of the offer. These Chinese companies have undergone modernisation and have adapted remarkably well to the needs of global fashion brands, which are particularly keen on Paris as a platform, as it is attuned to the concerns of those in the fashion business. Clothing production in the Far East appears to be orienting itself rather more towards the European market and Messe Frankfurt France in particular. The return of Ethiopia for the second time also gives grounds for satisfaction. We were the first in Paris to present their very individual offer of skills in textiles and accessories. I would add that Cambodia has this year focussed on its added creative value“, explained Scherpe.

Like each of these six Messe Frankfurt France shows, Apparel Sourcing Paris and Shawls & Scarves Paris have the advantage of dedicated fashion shows and form part of the Small Quantities and Sustainable Sourcing circuits, which are aimed at professionals wanting to place orders for small volumes or to find eco-friendly or ethical suppliers. The new Handmade circuit, which showcases manual skills, will also pass through The Fairyland for Fashion with these two shows. (RR)
