Aug 8, 2016
Munich Fabric Start, a bi-annual trade event that presents a vast selection of collections ranging from plains to haute couture fabrics and accessories, to be held in Germany, from August 30 to September 1, 2016 will display the latest trends in 3D print technology in the German apparel market.
“The portfolio of fabrics and services at the forthcoming event comprises of about 1,700 collections from around 1,000 suppliers, totalling 42,500 square metres,” Sebastian Klinder, managing director of Munich Fabric Start, told Fibre2Fashion.
The trade event will present a rigorously pre-selected, highly competitive range of textiles, accessories and denim, street- and sportswear, an international product portfolio for all apparel categories across eight exhibition spaces.
Discussing about the most important innovations in the fabric, denim and sportswear segments, Klinder said, “As in the past, the high degree of fashion focus was convincing and inspiring in collection design and ran through all collections like a common theme, both in the fabrics, denim, and sportswear segments. Forming current highlights are the innovative accents of potential smart textiles that are playing an increasingly important role in the development of strong market collections.”
Talking about the current apparel market in Germany, he said, “The German textile and apparel industry achieved total turnover in 2015 of €32 billion. Sixty per cent of this was accounted for by the textile sector and 40 per cent by the fashion sector. This means Germany continues to lead in Europe with turnover growth totalling 1.9 per cent, according to the textile and fashion association Gesamtverband textil+mode. Here the 3.4 per cent rise in industrial textiles is pleasing to note.”
