Texworld Paris, the trade fair for fabrics, trimmings and materials, maintains its position as a leader for fashion producers and expands the exhibition floor space by investing in a new hall.

Jun 18, 2018

Texworld Paris, the sourcing hub for the fabrics, components and trimmings trade and the clothing industry, is able to maintain its offer by keeping an ear to the ground about developments in a market that is in constant flux. Almost 1000 international exhibitors have signalled their attendance at the forty-fourth edition of the show and they continue to show a keen interest in the trade fairs held by Messe Frankfurt France, thus confirming Paris’ position as inextricably linked with the fashion industry. This asset in terms of business is what allows a considerable number of stakeholders in the fabrics sector to gain visibility on the global fashion scene and is demonstrated by the opening of a third hall for the first time. This expansion into Hall 3 is also the result of the launch of Leatherworld Paris, which is occupying part of Hall 2. From now on, Messe Frankfurt France’s cluster of trade shows for fashion & textiles (Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Leatherworld, Shawls&Scarves, Texworld et Texworld Denim Paris) will come under “The Fairyland for Fashion” banner, bring over 1850 exhibitors together and will extend over 66,800 sqm gross, or a healthy increase of 10%.

“Exhibitors who are looking to gain exposure and recognition on the western fashion market have clearly understood that Texworld Paris plays a very real role in introducing new businesses, raising firms’ profiles, encouraging recognition of expertise and skills, and, of course, as a trailblazer thanks to our worldwide network of representatives and business partners. Hence Texworld Paris continues to act as a vital gateway and reflects actual textile solutions from the whole world that serve the fashion industry. Texworld Paris remains an indispensable connection that unites fashion brands and fabric producers, the demand from the West and the industrial resources of the countries that supply textiles and clothing, whatever their range. The expansion into Hall 3 is evidence of this but it is also an indicator of the huge variety of our offer, as Leatherworld has been added to our portfolio of Paris trade fairs”

This change in layout has been accompanied by a thorough reorganisation of the knitwear and cotton segments, which are now going to be housed in the new Hall 3. These segments will group in one place the segments that were previously broken down into specialities (sophisticated, casual etc.) and which will now be found together. Where visitors are concerned, it first of all results in a practical benefit with the unique features of these spaces, which then gives them an opportunity to unearth treasures in the new areas organised by product family. Hence, suiting, wool and hemp/linen will be found in Hall 3. Embroidery, jacquard, prints, cotton, shirting and linen will be located/situated in Hall 4. Sportswear & Functional are as ever a sure bet with particular expansion in the very technical segment of beachwear, which includes the Korean firm of Donjin International. Another new feature of this September’s show: a showcase for one material – silk. It will enjoy a central space in Hall 2 that will be solely dedicated to it, regardless of whether the silk is made traditionally or a product of innovation. Some excellent high-end producers have registered, such as the age-old/timehonoured Chinese company Hua Jia Silk with its renowned silk georgettes or the Korean firm of New Star Tex with highly luxurious ranges for ready-towear.  

A crucial international representation

As regular attendees at Texworld, national pavilions will be back again to fly the flags for Pakistan, Thailand, South Korea, which is a particularly active participant, and, new at this show, Taiwan.  As for Turkey, it will be represented by a sizeable contingent of around one hundred firms, including, in particular, a selection of finely made cotton and knits from the major producers Migiboy Tekstil and Bordo Tekstil, who offer a range of organic cotton, to name but two companies. India, another important contributor to Texworld Paris, will also be present in a number of different exhibition segments, with attendance by Nahar Industrial Enterprises displaying their high-grade cotton fabrics. 

Not forgetting Indonesia, which will be returning with eight firms, Simtis, the expert for silky aspects representing Morocco, and Liontex from Egypt, where they are a pioneer, especially when it comes to their collections that are ideal for men’s suits. One of the major exporters from Bangladesh, Zaber & Zubair, has again chosen Elite to show the wealth of its textile solutions, verging on custom-made.  

Elite, the space that brings together in one place the firms that provide comprehensive solutions and which are willing to supply a wide range of complementary services called for in the production chain (design offices, logistics etc.). This is where to find regular exhibitors such as the Turkish firms of Reisoglu and Joyteks, New Heaven from Taiwan, Northern Linen from the Netherlands, Kohinoor, Liberty and Sapphire from Pakistan, or the Lebanese embroiderers Kaskas.  

The inescapable professional meeting place for textile sourcing

Do not forget the circuit for ‘green’ textiles at the heart of the show, the “Sustainable Sourcing Itinerary”; and as at every season’s show, the circuit bringing together the clothing manufacturers that are able to supply small quantities, from 5 to 100 metres.   Texworld Paris also aims to provide professionals from the industry with new insights into market developments thanks to its series of lectures on the outlook for the future and reports, which this season will focus on “the silk road” and “foreign trade in clothing and textiles and the European market”.  

Special events not to be missed include the trends forum for autumn/winter 19/20 Vertige, the space devoted to the winners of the Dinan International Festival for Young Fashion Designers (men’s ready-to-wear from Cognaq, the inspired light-reflecting women’s collection by Dario Bregmann, the cheeky label Eclort, the collection from Armine Ohanyan – a firm favourite) and the related catwalk show, which is the icing on the cake after these four days providing a wealth of experiences and encounters.
