The Munich Fabric Start with Bluezone, Keyhouse, and the individual showcases presented by around 1,000 international suppliers of fabrics and additionals will introduce the Spring.Summer 21 season from February 4-6, 2020, in Munich. Munich Fabric Start is one of the leading international textile trade shows for Europe’s fashion and apparel industry.

Approximately 20,000 trade visitors will have access to an extensive range of fabrics, additionals, designs, manufacturing services, supported by an informative and inspiring events programme. The Spring.Summer 21 season is characterised by dynamism, waves, and radiance – the guiding theme Thrivability brings enthusiasm and creates excitement, according to a press release on the show.

Thrivability deconstructs our understanding of fashion and embeds a new, positive way of thinking: aesthetics and people see eye to eye; resources and nature are respected. This creates a new understanding of holistic sustainability and future-oriented entrepreneurial spirit. Spring.Summer 21 answers current market needs and reflects an evolved understanding of values. Knowledge, transparency, quality, responsibility, and communication influence the current showcase of innovative product and processes on offer. Thrivability combines the essence of this new era with a classic definition of trends and cultivates an inspiring and progressive direction for materials, fashion, and design.

At various communication islands in the foyer of the MOC, industry experts will provide impulses and answers to current questions, from the origins of the material to exploring the diverse range of production processes and end garment recycling. Through direct discussions, visitors can gain valuable know-how, insights into topics and current solutions for both sustainable and innovative processes along the value chain.

In addition, Munich Fabric Start has implemented a newly developed icon guidance system which in the spirit of transparency, identifies the sustainable and technical aspects of all the material highlights presented in the Trend Forums. In this way, visitors can establish these respective and previously hidden properties of textiles and ingredients at a single glance.

Around 700 suppliers will present their creative new developments across more than 1,000 collections – based on the latest technology innovations and the conscious and conservative use of resources. This season, Munich Fabric Start will once again unite textile producers with a huge range of state-of-the-art fabrics, presenting not only essentials such as cotton, viscose, wool, elastane, lace and linen, but also novelties such as super-stretch silk, recycled polyester, Ecovero-Tencel linen, Naia, and Cupro fibre blends or hemp textiles.

Trims For Future – this is the global motto which represents approximately 200 of the world’s leading international Additionals suppliers. Fashionable new developments revolve around iridescent surfaces, glowing yarns and electrifying colour applications. The focus is on recycled and sustainably produced products in natural colours. ITL group will not only show its comprehensive range of products for the first time, but will also launch its C.A.R.E. Collection (Conscious, Affordable, Responsible, Eco-friendly labels) during the upcoming trade fair.

Natural colours based on sustainable dyeing techniques now determines the colour palettes of the inspiring designs at the internationally renowned, textile designers and trend offices in the Design Studios. The current change in the textile industry is leading to a revolution in the printing and dyeing industry and inspires a revival of natural dyes. Design Union and Primus Pattern also emphasise the simultaneous closeness to nature and diversity of textile prints for Spring.Summer 21.

As the think tank for innovation, Keyhouse will provide insights into future fabrics, new technologies, smart products & processes, sustainable innovations and alternative material resources, offering and inspiring pioneering concepts.

With over 100 major international brands, Bluezone has positioned itself as the initiator of an extraordinary, strong and innovative denim community. The answer to a conscious consumer approach and a growing interest in ready-made solutions that offer revolutionary products, state-of-the-art technological processes and complex functionalities.

There will be a premium event programme featuring impressive panel discussions, polarising keynotes, and trend seminars by international experts. The Keyhouse in hall 5 will feature exciting lectures on the various subjects of innovation. The diverse events on offer in the Bluezone area of hall 7 will provide an in-depth insight into the developments in the denim industry, while the ReSOURCE forum in K3 in the MOC will offer an equally relevant programme on the topics of sustainability, certification, and quality seals.
