Munich Fabric Start has obtained a positive balance from its first physical edition after more than a year of forced stoppage due to the Covid-19 pandemic. More than 600 international suppliers presented their novelties and textile developments for autumn / winter 2022/23, for almost 1000 collections.
This figure corresponds to about 60% of the number of exhibitors who attended the show in September 2019, its last autumn / winter edition before the pandemic.
Almost 13,400 professionals from all over the world came to Munich, representing 66% of the number of visitors received in September 2019. The number of dealerships increased slightly.
The organizers are more than satisfied with this result. “Our team is exhausted but delighted: we have overcome perhaps the greatest challenge in the history of our company. We have managed to create a Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone (space dedicated to denim) comparable to our usual events”, summed up the head of the fair, Sebastian Klinder.
“Our efforts were rewarded by the positive reaction from the industry; our trade shows were a resounding success, meeting sanitary standards. Of course, our expectations were low given the situation, which is why we are so pleasantly surprised by this positive result. It is as if the industry was back in good spirits and looking forward to a few hours of ‘business as usual’, “continued Sebastian Klinder.
According to the fair, of the 4,200 fashion brands that attended, many of the main European fashion houses were present, such as Adidas, Balenciaga, Bestseller, Bogner, Bugatti, Cinque, Closed, Comma, Drykorn, Escada and Hallhuber, as well like Aigner, Akris, Alberto, Armedangels and Baldessarini.
Visitors included representatives from Holy Fashion Group, 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.
