Avantex Paris, a trade fair for sustainable development technologies that addresses every segment of fashion, provides practical and forward-looking insights into tomorrow’s fashion. Slated to be held from September 17-20, 2018, the trade fair promises a wealth of materials and potential to be discovered by visitors who are keen on high-tech fashion.

Avantex Paris is the trade fair under the Messe Frankfurt France umbrella which puts innovation and sustainable development at the heart of services, materials or technologies for textiles and clothing. Messe Frankfurt France’s cluster of trade shows for fashion & textiles (Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Leatherworld, Shawls&Scarves, Texworld and Texworld Denim Paris) will come under ‘The Fairyland for Fashion’ banner and bring over 1,850 exhibitors together.

“Each season, Avantex Paris is certain to spark great interest among visitors. Very topical propositions for products and solutions, but also university or independent research and start-ups at the show not only attract labels, designers, other exhibitors, researchers or teachers, who see an opportunity to exchange ideas or compare their views. Avantex has become a real network, an aggregator of ideas, a lab that goes beyond the world of fashion in the strict sense. Provide a stimulus for every sector of fashion, that is what we aim to encourage with the Avantex Fashion Pitch, a competition organised in conjunction with our partner Wirate that each season allows a light to be shone on a budding new talent from the industry,” said Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France.

At the seventh edition of the show, Asia will be well represented with high-tech technical textiles from China and Taiwan. As for South Korea, it will be presenting its myriad skills when it comes to outdoors materials from Bosung Textile, and the best in applied research and experimental development from the international Korean Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH), said the organiser in a press release.

An exhibition regular, the European Centre for Innovative Textiles (CETI), the international research hub dedicated to textile innovation, and the French high-tech fashion label TO & GUY with its virtual boutique have already confirmed their attendance. The laboratory aspect of the show will be represented firstly by La Fabrique, the school of fashion and decorative arts from the Ile-de-France region, which will be presenting the outcome of its collaboration with the Fashion Tech organisation, and secondly by the Chemarts programme, which links two departments form the University of Aalto in Finland: the school of chemical engineering and the school of art, design and architecture.

Avantex Paris will welcome the Avantex Fashion Pitch prize winner from February 2018, Coco&Rico, the clothing production workshop for local supply channels. Specialised talks designing the future of the sector have also been organised for the visitors. Additionally, the Deutsche Institut für Textil und Faserforschung (DITF) is organising a round table on the subject of local production and reactive supply chains: small production units combining textiles and digital technology in response to the market.
