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.

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.

Altogether there are about 950 international exhibitors offering a portfolio from Basics to Sportswear and Haute Couture. “We have created an ideal platform for the presentation of a total of 1,500 collections," states MUNICH FABRIC START Managing Director Wolfgang Klinder. “We see the compilation of this selective portfolio as one of our most important responsibilities, which enables us to serve the demands of the market and the most important segments in the currently best possible manner.” Last but not least the MFS organisers have again prepared a first rate accompanying programme and work shops to offer the most possible informational and inspirational start into the new season.

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.
