37. MUNICH FABRIC START confirms increasing international importance

„An excellent range of exhibitors“, “an efficient business platform” and “a personal atmosphere” – a lot of positive feedback was expressed by the international textile and fashion industry for the latest edition of MUNICH FABRIC START running from 2nd to 4th September 2014 who used the fair as the season’s kick-off in terms of sourcing.

The organizers could register again some 20.000 trade visitors who viewed the final fabric and additional collections for the season Autumn.Winter 15/16 at the MOC venue and Zenith Hall. Among the constantly good attendance, a slight increase in international visitors compared to last year was recorded. The curated portfolio of some 950 international fabric, findings, denim and sportswear manufacturers with some 1,500 basic to haute couture collections raised attraction for an increased audience from abroad. Among guests from Mid-European countries, also visitors from Scandinavia, the US and Canada visited the fair in Munich.

The ECO VILLAGE and organicselection, MUNICH FABRIC START’s sustainability platform, also took benefit from the high visitor attendance. As professional business platform on a high level, MUNICH FABRIC START confirms once again Munich as the place to be at this early point in time for the season’s start. This is underlined by a fully booked and highly demanded BLUEZONE that runs parallel during the first two trade fair days.




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.
