A new hall dedicated to denim will be launched in March, with about 15 international manufacturers. The hall will be located at the very entrance of the venue and will showcase denim fabrics, accessories and garments from international manufacturers. Among the countries represented are Spain, Pakistan, Italy, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey.
John Kelley, the show organiser said, “After the launch of the garments section last March, we realised that the range of Texfusion products was not complete and something was missing. We noticed that the UK market showed an increasing attention to this product and we decided to create a denim section within Texfusion. Denim manufacturers don’t belong to any other sections and they deserve a special hall within the show.”
From March, there will also be an area dedicated to the trends for Spring/Summer 2019. Four moods will be unveiled, two for fashion and two for technical.
The collaboration with Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) has led to the launch of a new pavilion entirely from Taiwan that, for this edition, will focus on technical fabrics. A group of ten companies from Taiwan will present their latest collections of functional and eco-friendly, functional non-woven fabrics, insulation, and SEAWOOL functional fabrics, functional wool collection along with integrated garment solutions, functional tights and leggings. The fashion fabrics & accessories area confirms its leading position within the show with around 80 exhibitors expected. (GK)
