Over 1,000 international exhibitors are interested in attending the 44th edition of Texworld Paris, the trade fair for fabrics, trimmings and materials. It will take place in Le Bourget, Paris, from September 17-20, 2018. The exhibition floor space of the fair has been expanded as the organiser is investing in a new hall, bringing the number of halls to 3.

“Exhibitors who are looking to gain exposure and recognition on the western fashion market have clearly understood that Texworld Paris plays a very real role in introducing new businesses, raising firms’ profiles, encouraging recognition of expertise and skills, and, of course, as a trailblazer thanks to our worldwide network of representatives and business partners. Hence Texworld Paris continues to act as a vital gateway and reflects actual textile solutions from the whole world that serve the fashion industry,” said Michael Scherpe, president of Messe Frankfurt France, the organiser of the show.

“Texworld Paris remains an indispensable connection that unites fashion brands and fabric producers, the demand from the West and the industrial resources of the countries that supply textiles and clothing, whatever their range. The expansion into Hall 3 is evidence of this but it is also an indicator of the huge variety of our offer, as Leatherworld has been added to our portfolio of Paris trade fairs,” added Scherpe.

The change in layout has been accompanied by a thorough reorganisation of the knitwear and cotton segments, which are now going to be housed in the new Hall 3. These segments will group in one place the segments that were previously broken down into specialities (sophisticated, casual etc.) and which will now be found together. It results in a practical benefit with the unique features of these spaces, which gives visitors an opportunity to unearth treasures in the new areas organised by product family.

Suiting, wool and hemp/linen will be found in Hall 3. Embroidery, jacquard, prints, cotton, shirting and linen will be located/situated in Hall 4. Sportswear & Functional are as ever a sure bet with particular expansion in the very technical segment of beachwear, which includes the Korean firm of Donjin International.

Another new feature of this September’s show is the showcase of silk. It will enjoy a central space in Hall 2 that will be solely dedicated to it, regardless of whether the silk is made traditionally or a product of innovation. Some excellent high-end producers have registered, such as the age-old/time-honoured Chinese company Hua Jia Silk with its renowned silk georgettes or the Korean firm of New Star Tex with highly luxurious ranges for ready-to-wear, said the organiser in a press release.

As regular attendees at Texworld, national pavilions will be back again to fly the flags for Pakistan, Thailand, South Korea, which is a particularly active participant, and, new at this show, Taiwan. As for Turkey, it will be represented by a sizeable contingent of around one hundred firms, including, in particular, a selection of finely made cotton and 3 knits from the major producers Migiboy Tekstil and Bordo Tekstil, who offer a range of organic cotton, to name but two companies.

India, another important contributor to Texworld Paris, will also be present in a number of different exhibition segments, with attendance by Nahar Industrial Enterprises displaying their high-grade cotton fabrics. Not forgetting Indonesia, which will be returning with eight firms, Simtis, the expert for silky aspects representing Morocco, and Liontex from Egypt, where they are a pioneer, especially when it comes to their collections that are ideal for men’s suits.

One of the major exporters from Bangladesh, Zaber & Zubair, has again chosen Elite to show the wealth of its textile solutions, verging on custom-made. Elite brings together the firms that provide comprehensive solutions and which are willing to supply a wide range of complementary services called for in the production chain (design offices, logistics etc.). This is where to find regular exhibitors such as the Turkish firms of Reisoglu and Joyteks, New Heaven from Taiwan, Northern Linen from the Netherlands, Kohinoor, Liberty and Sapphire from Pakistan, or the Lebanese embroiderers Kaskas.

The circuit for ‘green’ textiles at the heart of the show is the ‘Sustainable Sourcing Itinerary’ and as at every season’s show, the circuit brings together the clothing manufacturers that are able to supply small quantities, from 5 to 100 metres. Texworld Paris also aims to provide professionals from the industry with new insights into market developments thanks to its series of lectures on the outlook for the future and reports, which this season will focus on ‘the silk road’ and ‘foreign trade in clothing and textiles and the European market’.

Special events include the trends forum for autumn/winter 19/20 Vertige, the space devoted to the winners of the Dinan International Festival for Young Fashion Designers (men’s ready-to-wear from Cognaq, the inspired light-reflecting women’s collection by Dario Bregmann, the cheeky label Eclort, the collection from Armine Ohanyan) and the related catwalk show.
