Denim Extremes at BLUEZONE

The latest denim and sportswear developments and finishes will be on display at the BLUEZONE, which will be staged in the unique ambiance of the adjacent Zenith Hall. Held on 2 and 3 February 2015, the show-in-show at MUNICH FABRIC START continues to enjoy extremely strong demand and offers the denim and sportswear community an optimal setting for work that’s both productive and creative.

Running under the heading of DENIM EXTREMES, the Spring.Summer 16 BLUEZONE will feature a better-than-ever line-up of about 80 international denim weavers, finishers and washers. Leading brands such as Candiani SpA, Isko, Orta Anadolu, Tejidos Royo, Calik and Lanificio Europa SNC, ITV Denim and M&J Group will be joined by these notable newcomers: Denim Authority, Industrias Morera Unitin, DNM Textile, Fashion Point and Suryalakshmi Cotton Mills. In summer 2016, denim is confrontational to the extreme. Extreme widths step on to fashion’s playing field and oppose equally extreme slim silhouettes. Super short shorts are confronted by long coats while extremely clean jeans position themselves just as self-confidently as extremely destroyed denims. Completing the BLUEZONE portfolio are denim-related products such as flats, corduroy, mill-washed fabrics, accessories and the latest innovations for resource-friendly finishes.
