The September edition of Munich Fabric Start reached 950 international exhibitors showcasing a varied portfolio of about 1,500 different fabric collections. The event has been witnessing returning exhibitors and visitors, further enriched by an increasing amount of international guests visiting the Munich fair. The visitors came from the US, Canada and Scandinavia besides the European countries.
Commenting on the exhibition’s success, Sebastian Klinder, CEO, Munich Fabric Start, said the event has been witnessing fully booked halls. Even the new edition of the BlueZone saw 75 exhibitors including leading European denim weavers and finishers. According to him, working at such rhythms is impressive because the company is continuously organizing different events every month and a half.
The company recently inked a partnership with fashion fair Premium Exhibitions with the first ‘Premium Order Munich’ concluding in August in the MOC venue. Even the View Premium Selection edition held in Munich mid-July was a success. The exhibition hosted about 300 collections Held twice a year in July and December, the platform serves as a preview textile fair.
Supporting Karl-Heinz Müller’s decision of bringing Bread & Buttern Berlin back to Germany, Klinder says that returning to Berlin was the right decision since many companies want to expand their presence in a strong market like Germany. Expressing his views on lack of denim brands in Germany apart from Mustang, he wished that even German manufacturers would some-day be able to launch an interesting brand that could become important and trendsetting.
