Breathe a sigh of relief in Munich: Munich Fabric Start draws a positive balance of its first physical edition after more than a year of pandemic-related break. More than 600 international suppliers presented their innovations and developments for autumn / winter 2022/23 in around 1000 collections.
Compared to September 2019 – the last autumn / winter fair before the pandemic – this corresponds to an exhibitor frequency of 60 percent.
At the same time, around 13,400 international trade visitors were on site in Munich this season. This corresponds to a visitor frequency of 66 percent compared to the edition in September 2019 and, measured by the number of suppliers, represents a slight increase.
The organizers are more than satisfied with this result. “Our team is exhausted, but overjoyed: The biggest challenge in our company’s history lies behind us. We have actually managed to implement a comparable Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone with the usual broad portfolio in these times,” says trade fair boss Sebastian Klinder.
“All our efforts were rewarded with all-round positive industry feedback, because our Covid-19-compliant trade fairs were a complete success. Of course, our expectations were cautious according to the situation – that’s precisely why we are so overwhelmed by the positive result. It seems as if it had whole textile industry excited about it and now grateful to be able to experience a few hours of ‘business as usual’ again, “continues Klinder.
According to the trade fair, numerous well-known brands from the European clothing industry were represented among the 4,200 fashion brands present, including Adidas, Balenciaga, Bestseller, Bogner, Bugatti, Cinque, Closed, Comma, Drykorn, Escada and Hallhuber as well as Aigner, Akris, Alberto, Armedangels and Baldessarini.
Also representatives of the Holy Fashion Group, from Hugo Boss, Jack Wolfskin, Joop !, Lagerfeld, Lodenfrey, Marc Cain, Marc O’Polo, Peek & Cloppenburg, Puma, Riani, Dorothee Schumacher, Seidensticker, S.Oliver, Strellson, Talbot Runhof , Tchibo, Tommy Hilfiger and Vaude were among the trade visitors.
