Texworld Denim Paris ; No fashion label can afford to miss all the accumulated creative forces and industrial strengths of the denim sector on display at Texworld Denim.
The trade fair for sourcing denim textiles and manufacturers of denim clothing gives every sign of being a good third show with almost 80 exhibitors, which is a slight increase compared with September 2017, which marked the launch of Texworld Denim Paris. A new layout for the trade fair was adopted last February following a very encouraging session. 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 and bring over 1850 exhibitors together.
“We have certainly observed that this pooling of the denim ranges offered at Texworld Denim is a strong drawing point, to the extent that it is now impossible to imagine a show without it, and this is not just in the view of
Messe Frankfurt France staff at but also that of the exhibitors and visitors.This interest is what convinced us of the merits of creating a show for denim, which has definitely established itself”, added Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France.
Improvements in the flow of visitors around the different shows and pick-up/drop-off points for shuttle buses and taxis.
Expanding the trade fair into Hall 3 has meant we have had to rearrange the layout to provide a better reception for visitors and exhibitors with two access points to the show.
A new arrival point on the west side of the exhibition centre will serve Halls 3 and 4 directly. The entrance area in Hall 3 takes you straight to the Woollens segment and the General Forum, while the entrance area in Hall 4 leads to the Print segment and a new forum with special themes. The usual entrance in Hall 2 will still be in use and open into Leatherworld and then to Apparel Sourcing.
A transport hub for RER shuttle buses to and from Le Bourget and taxis/private hire cars will be located on both sides of the le Bourget Parc des Expositions (exhibition centre). There will also be regular connections for Le Roissy airport, the Gare du Nord station, Porte Maillot and the Villepinte RER station at the level of the bus station outside Hall 2.
Transport arrangements will also include a small train to take people from one stop to another and get to the other side of the exhibition centre.
The major operators of the denim sector
This meeting place for the denim sector is characterized by the major operators’ choosing to attend the show this season, such as Atlas Denim from Turkey, Nice Denim Mills Lt. from Bangladesh, a subsidiary of the textile giant
Zaber & Zubair, or Foison, the sizeable, vertical business from Guangzhou that is occupying a 42 sqm stand at the show. Elsewhere, we note an increase in attendance by specialist denim firms from China and Pakistan too.
• a Chinese-Canadian joint venture from Dizaro Collection and its own label, Makers of True Originals, already a success back in September 2017
• the major spinning mills and weavers from Pakistan, Rajwani Denim Mills and SM Denim who are focussing on innovation and sustainable development
• just like the Indian firm of Bhaskar Industries, which also has a team dedicated to the collaborative creation of styles.
A tested and proven formula
True to its practical programming, Texworld Denim Paris will again hold special events relating to trends with a Trends Forum including products and materials, a Social Village with bar, the Agora with its lectures on what’s going
