Around 300 exhibitors from about ten countries will show off their clothing manufacturing skills at the Apparel Sourcing Paris, the international show for clothing and fashion accessories manufacturing sourcing, being organised during February 11-14, 2018 in Paris. The show provides solutions for women, men and children clothing and accessories production.

“For the benefit of our visitors and our exhibitors alike, it is of paramount importance to us that the offer we develop at Apparel Sourcing Paris is in line with the current situation in the clothing market. To ensure we achieve this, we work all year assessing potential exhibitors and an on-the-ground presence allows us to forge constructive ties with the countries which are best able to offer the clothing manufacturing skills that meet the requirements of ready-to-wear brands. We are therefore delighted to host a full-scale pavilion for Myanmar, which attended last September with just a delegation. We are however also glad to see the return of nine Ethiopian companies under the auspices of ETGAMA, the national association for clothing & textiles” says Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France.

The trade fair that provides solutions for women, men and children clothing and accessories production, has been reorganised to make searches easier for visitors, and new segments such as Active Urban, Smart Elegant and Underwear have been established.

Key players from sourcing countries have confirmed their attendance. While Bangladesh, India and Pakistan remain committed to the February event, manufacturers from Hong Kong register a significant increase along with the Chinese who are also boosting their numbers slightly this season.

Despite the exceptional opening of the Messe Frankfurt France’s shows on Sunday (instead of Monday), clothing manufacturers nonetheless remain confident and have maintained their interest in the event, without significant impact on the smooth running and the quality of the offer.

The showcase on Shawls and Scarves, which consists of accessories for head, neck and shoulders, will also offer finished products to round off an outfit such as footwear, umbrellas, ties, gloves etc. Exhibitors are also diversifying with a resurgence of bags and ponchos. The artistic directors for the Messe Frankfurt France trade fairs have also announced the return of THE DRESSING, the space for trends that displays a mix of the most popular clothes and accessories produced this season.

The “Small Quantities” circuit, dedicated to fashion labels and designers, makes it possible for them to order even less than 50 items on occasion and the “Sustainable Sourcing” circuit guarantees products and firms that actively practice sustainable development, with plenty of “green” labels.
