WELCOME NEWS MUNICH FABRIC START & BLUEZONE
TRANSFORM! The signs point to change. This time it is more than just about superficial tweaking. It is about new mindsets and perspectives. The principle of conventional seasonal rhythms is under review. Surprising correlations bring the rustic up alongside the technological. Tradition takes on new value within the innovation process.

Summer 2018 will mobilise and emotionalise consumers with its extraordinarily progressive approach.

Over 1000 international producers and suppliers will showcase more than 1700 new fabrics and additionals collections. The complex portfolio is composed of the latest fabric and findings trends in women's and men's wear, denim and sportswear as well as in sub-sections of kids' wear.
