Top-class audience and an ongoing large flow of visitors

Following the very successful first trade fair day, MFS’s second day was equally well attended. Intensive talks and lots of inspiration ensured a good and highly efficient atmosphere among visitors and exhibitors alike. Already in the early morning, numerous visitors were in all of the four trade fair halls of the MOC venue as well as in the adjacent Zenith Hall, venue of the denim area BLUEZONE.

This was followed by a continuous stream of visitors in all areas bringing along a first rate professional audience, among them were many designers and buyers from renownend international fashion brands. Correspondently high was the interest of national and international media representatives, who used MUNICH FABRIC START as a trend and inspiration platform for upcoming autumn.winter season 15/16. This time MFS organisers could offer another edition of the much sought after Designer’s Walk, this time led by Ali Ansari, Head of Design at Campus (Marc O’ Polo). Ali Ansari led a dozen of journalists over the fair ground, to demonstrate sourcing strategies as well as the increasing complexity in the creation of a fashion collection. The way came across the information and inspiration platforms such as Sample Areas and Colour Forum to longstanding suppliers and agents. The structural change in the sourcing market as well as the latest material developments and their trend potential were at the focus of interest. Traditionally at the end of the second fair day, some 3000 guests rocked at the legendary MUNICH FABRIC START Oktoberfest, next to the Zenith Hall.

Promising first day at the 37th MUNICH FABRIC START

It was a sensational opening: At 9 am the 37th MUNICH FABRIC START was the first of the international textile fairs to kick off the autumn.winter 15/16 season – accompanied by an impressive number of visitors.

Many exhibitors confirmed this first impression as Fluxus, exhibitor in the Design Studios, states: “We had such a rush of visitors in the morning, we could hardly work it off.” Altogether visitors appeared very open-minded and interested, which was also true for the diverse special areas like the constantly well attended forum for sustainable fabrics, the so called organicselection, which offered a good balance of well known customers and prospective ones. As for the 75 exhibitors of the denim area BLUEZONE, which is set for only two days, the first half of the exhibition was already over at the end of fair day one. Most of them viewed the latest edition of BLUEZONE in a very positive light, with regard to the importance of the exhibition as well as the great dynamic and buying power of the German market in general, which lately seems more open for innovations and true denim topics.

MUNICH FABRIC START Autumn.Winter 15/16- Kick-off with 1500 collections

It’s fair time again: From 2 to 4 September 2014, the textile and clothing industry meets in Munich for MUNICH FABRIC START as kick-off event for the Autumn.Winter 15/16 season. For three full days, everything revolves around the entire spectrum of the latest fabric and accessories innovations, equipment, findings and technologies from established manufacturers, weaving mills, printers and textile service providers, all staged for viewing by the fashion industry in the completely sold-out MOC and the neighbouring Zenith Hall.
