MUNICH FABRIC START again with a strong international line-up - MOC fully booked

MUNICH FABRIC START Exhibitions is happy to announce that both upcoming trade fairs MUNICH FABRIC START (2-4 September) and BLUEZONE (2/3 September) are again fully booked. For this reason, the management is highly confident to kick-off the new season. Some 950 internationally renowned manufacturers of fabrics and findings from 35 countries will be presenting about 1,500 collections.

BLUEZONE, the area for Denim & Sportswear, will host some 80 exhibitors with a strong line-up of internationally leading Denim brands. The portfolio is rounded out by  demin-related products like flats, corduroy, washed qualities, accessories, as well as the latest innovations for resource saving finishings.

To kick-off the international fabric fair season Autumn.Winter 15/16, MUNICH FABRIC START showcases the latest fabric innovations and trend topics in tune with the season’s title “EXTRAandORDINARY”. It focuses primarily on the connection between the ordinary and the extraordinary. Classic matters are on the rise with slightly minimalist entries and in technical materials. Romantic themes are more dry and not as dreamy. High-tech influences are mixed with the pure and grounded.

On 15 and 16 July already VIEW Premium Selection opens the Autumn.Winter 15/16 season with some 300 PreCollections at Munich’s MVG Museum and offers a first exclusive insight into the latest fabric and accessories’ developments and innovations in the premium sector. For further information visit

As a preview event for MUNICH FABRIC START, VIEW provides an exclusive outlook on innovations and new items in the premium fabric and accessories segment area for the upcoming season. Due to rising demand for exhibition space, VIEW will be held at the Munich Transport Museum (MVG Museum) for the first time.

Boasting a completely booked-up hall with a total of 300 selected PreCollections of international top-notch weaving mills and findings, this season’s event exceeds all organisers’ expectations. In addition to numerous new exhibitors, the companies already represented at the previous event will also be offering a bigger selection of collections. This will allow trade visitors to browse almost double the amount of collections compared to the last season. Especially for the denim and sportswear industries, VIEW provides an additional presentation forum in order to showcase the innovations resulting from the now continuous developments from denim brands. For the first time there will be a Trendforum to stage the pre-trends in fabrics, findings and colours for the Autumn.Winter 15/16 season.

TW Forumpreis - and the winner is...

“THANK YOU for the constant support, the continuous excitement and the longstanding confidence! We are very delighted to be awarded the “TW Forumpreis” and cordially thank our exhibitors, our guests, our team and our partners! Together with you, MUNICH FABRIC START can be realized as a unique event season by season. This price affirms us to further develop our fair with high motivation and courage for innovation.” – Wolfgang and Sebastian Klinder
MUNICH FABRIC START has been awarded the popular “Forumpreis” in the “Service” category from TextilWirtschaft, Europe’s leading business media and trade magazine of the fashion industry.

On Wednesday evening, Wolfgang and Sebastian Klinder received the price in front of 600 selected guests in the Print Media Academy in Heidelberg. The jury – consisting of 13 established top entrepreneurs and managers from the industry – mainly based their decision on the constant willingness to change and the high innovative strength that has evolved the former agency platform to an event of international importance. “With MUNICH FABRIC START, there is a platform again in Germany that is on a par with Milano and Paris, with Premiere Vision and Milano Unica”, states Michael Werner, Editor in Chief of TextilWirtschaft.

The TW Forumpreis is one of the most renowned awards in the fashion and textile industry that is annually granted to companies or industry representatives for outstanding personal or entrepreneurial achievements that influence the market in the long term. Among the award winners were Zalando from Berlin, the denim brand Nudie Jeans from Gothenburg and the multi-label store Breuninger from Stuttgart.
