Rooting technology and development firmly and intensively within its product segments is one of the core competences of MUNICH FABRIC START. The over 1,600 collections from 900 international suppliers alone featured at the MOC in the FABRICS and ADDITIONALS segments are testimony to this.

The overall positive and inspiring mood was also confirmed by new exhibitor Incalpaca:

‘This is our first time at MUNICH FABRIC START and already now we can say: this decision has paid off. The presence of major German brands is overwhelming here but we were also able to make many good contacts outside Germany, from Holland to Portugal.’
Karina Pinto Cortijo, Sales Manager at Incalpaca

As always, especially for these segments MUNICH FABRIC START offers an exclusive program developed by experts – one that delivers impulses, pinpoints solutions and offers the possibilities of focused networking. Like at the 2nd edition of the ‘patterns X.0’ conference held on the first day of the fair and dealing with the future of the fashion industry. A new addition is ReSOURCE as an extended sourcing platform following on from organicselection.

‘The new concept ReSOURCE, that compactly presents sustainable sourcing options and comprehensive information at the MOC, proved an immediate and resounding success.’
Alex Vogt, KERN.

‘The premises at K4 of the MOC are ideal. This is the perfect setting for optimum work. Here there is lots of space for presentation and discussions. ReSOURCE is exactly the right concept at the right time.’
Heike Hess, Manager at IVN

As inspiring as ever, the trend worlds featured in the Trend and Colour Forums staged in the foyers and across the exhibition centre showcase the highlights and innovations for fabrics and additionals for the 19/20 Autumn.Winter season.

With this wide spectrum of product and trend presentations across various categories and special interests the once again fully booked MOC in 4 halls on three levels underlines its strong position on the international trade fair landscape.

‘This was another great event with very varied and outstanding lectures. On the one hand, very practical and, on the other, very future-oriented. It is very interesting to find out how leading companies from non-fashion industries deal with future themes.’
Franziska von Becker, Brand Director More & More

‘The fashion system of the future will differ from the one we know due to a variety of radical changes. Without doubt, the emerging opportunities offered by technological change will set the tone here but the all-decisive change has to take place in the players’ heads. Only by being prepared to deal continuously with the unknown, to constantly question yourself and always place consumers centre stage without compromise can you open your mind and find, if at all possible, viable solutions for the unsolvable tasks of the future”. So, Consumers First! as an approach is primarily a question of attitude rather than a process.’
