The third edition of Avantex Fashion Pitch has been announced for budding young talents from the textile and clothing industry. It will provide an opportunity for candidates to take part in the Avantex show in February 2019 in one of its 5 segments – materials & components, prototype studio, clothing & accessories, smart retail, Avanprint - digital printing.

The winner of the competition will also get a chance to show their creations in the catwalk area for events under the Texworld Paris banner and receive support from the Wirate rating platform for creating a promotional video, worth €1,200. Interested candidates can take part by joining the Avantex Paris club and submitting a relevant project before midday on September 7, 2018.

“I set up the Avantex Fashion Pitch since there was a clear need to support the many burgeoning start-ups in the textiles and clothing industry. Just like Avantex, these are the incubators for tomorrow’s fashion and have an impact on all branches of the industry. I am particularly glad to be able to contribute in my own way to helping them develop and prosper,” said Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France, the organiser of the competition.

Avantex Fashion Pitch is a crowd-rating initiative that aims to encourage integration of technology in clothing following a call for project proposals on the specialist Wirate platform, one of the event’s partners. Start-ups obtaining the best rating from internet users will thus be able to present their proposals at Avantex Paris on September 19, 2018 at the Avantex agora. Project champions will have to explain their work in a brief 5-minute pitch at the agora at the trade show. The winner will be revealed once all competitors make their presentations and the industry professionals attending the show judge them via the Wirate rating application. Visitors to the show and internet users will get to choose the best project using the free Wirate application, said the organiser in a press release.

Smart tights monitoring the health of athletes’ knees, designed by Torq Labs, collected the award during the September 2017 edition of Avantex. The February 2018 Avantex winner was Coco&Rico, a start-up specialising in textile production and R&D, offering products Made in France.

The next Avantex Paris show will take place from September 17-20, 2018. (KD)
