Double anniversary at Texworld!

02
Jun '12
There will be a myriad of colourful candles, sparkles and confetti at the rendezvous in celebration of 15 years of Texworld and 10 years of Messe Frankfurt France this coming September. Texworld was established by Daniel Rubinstein in 1997 with the aim of showcasing non-European weavers' products in Paris, and to simplify procurement for international buyers who wanted to diversify their sourcing in the traditional countries for textiles like Turkey, India, China and Pakistan. Since then, the show has grown, diversified and evolved each season.

For 15 years, Texworld has serviced international fashion and professionals in the textiles sector and has given new dynamic and impulse to the European world ofashion. Buyers were especially appreciative of Texworld and the new international offer, which was 17-20 September 2012 lacking in Paris. Thanks to the sound structure and momentum instilled by the team at Messe Frankfurt France as the new owner of the show, it has been possible to promote the strengths of Texworld to fashion designers, ready-to-wear labels, trend agencies and colleges of fashion.

Openness and a bold approach have contributed greatly to the success of the exhibition for over 15 years, for example:

• the choice of Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud, graduates of the Esmod school and the designers behind the Les Garçons label, as the artistic directors,
• its avant-garde role: the exhibition backed eco-friendly textiles very early on,
• support for young designers in cooperation with Esmod International,
• sponsoring of the Dinard Festival of Young Fashion Designers which has been very inspiring

Now a benchmark as a business platform and new source for inspiration, the exhibition continues to show its innovative strengths and provides solutions for the changes taking place in the sector.

“Thanks to changes in its structure, Texworld has become an international trade fair with a real buzz. Every season, it makes us want to deliver innovation in order to respond to the demands from all the various players in textiles, fashion and the garment industry,” says Detlef Braun, member of the Board at Messe Frankfurt.

Today with the increase in outdoor activities and brands for casual wear and sportswear, functional fabrics are at the very heart of fashion. The new casual wear, loungewear and outdoor collections require easy-care textiles with a variety of functional properties that are resilient.

Texworld, with almost fifty exhibitors in the My Casual View section offers an excellent selection of functional and traditional fabrics, and some are also eco-friendly: cotton, polycottons, polyester blends, nylon.

The arrival of new exhibitors specialising in functional textiles as well as the return of Taiwan Eco Textiles from last September will together further expand the offer of functional fabrics at Texworld.
