Paris edition of big leagues in textile and apparel trade shows – Apparel Sourcing, Texworld and Avantex will take place from 12th to 15th September this year. Organised by Messe Frankfurt, leaders in trade fair organising, the 4-day event will be a flurry of exhibitions, seminars, conferences and fashion shows, while providing a platform for business interactions.

Adding more flavour, Texworld Paris 2016 – a global platform for purchasing materials, fabrics and supplies – is introducing a new segment, ELITE which will display a collection of fabrics for the more ‘refined’ markets, while continuing its much appreciated ‘Small Quantities’ section – catering to the growing demand of smaller order quantities; and ‘My Sustainable Sourcing’ – with a focus on sustainable sourcing ways. Also, for the first time being South Korea will display latest innovations in modern and technical fabrics at the fair.

Keeping up with the needs emerging in the markets world over, the third edition of Avantex Paris will display technological innovations in ready-to-wear apparel and fashion accessories sectors. The show will be a goldmine of B2B interactions between high-tech textile companies, designers and product managers from the leading fashion brands across the globe. In addition, the 2016 edition will demonstrate the expertise with which haute-couture and lingerie sectors are incorporating technical textiles in their products, and their offerings of cutting edge selection of functional and innovative textiles. A special conference dedicated to instrumented textiles, connected apparel, flexible & highly functional composite materials and challenges that the fashion world faces in incorporating technology in everyday apparel, will also be held alongside the exhibition.

Another key apparel sourcing fair – Apparel Sourcing Paris, which is into its 11th edition, is expecting a 40 per cent surge in the number of exhibitors. Focused on global apparel sourcing strategies, the show has major exhibitors from its previous editions, like China, which is the number one apparel supplier of the European Union; India, which will take part at the fair with 20 per cent more exhibitors; Vietnam, where exhibitors feel that just one trade show is enough to provide them with business for the whole year; and Hong Kong. Besides this, a growing trend in the market – made-to-measure tailoring will also have exhibitors in attendance.

Alongside these three key shows, Shawls & Scarves will also be held, displaying fashion accessories such as bonnets, suspenders, headscarves, caps, belts, hats, socks, neckties, stoles, scarves, gloves and more in a wide variety of materials including cashmere, wool, silk, cotton, linen, etc. New products such as umbrellas, leather bags and bow ties will also be up on display, adding more variety to a wide range of product categories.
