Avantex Paris to offer high tech solution to fashion sector

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-06-29 16:00:00 – Paris

Avantex Paris, a trade show dedicated to high tech fabrics for fashion and to research in that field, the show will take place this September in Paris where it will offer international visitors an aspirational selection of solutions dedicated to the ready-to-wear and fashion accessories sectors.

With over 30 exhibitors, the event is expanding to offer a vast range of textiles, which are becoming ever more technical and innovative and are showcased against a backdrop designed by the show’s artistic directors.

In September, it will be two years since Avantex Paris first proposed some decidedly high-tech solutions for clothing and fashion accessories aimed at designers and professionals from the textiles branch.

The show in September 2017 will focus on innovative fabrics in particular, thanks to a partnership that has been established with Matéri’O, the specialist for independent monitoring of innovative materials and technologies, said Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France.

Avantex Paris will build on activities that are crucial in developing new technologies in the textiles, clothing and accessories sector with a competition reserved for start-ups and launched on Wirate: the Avantex Fashion Pitch.

The trade show will attest to the diversity of research and development thanks to Matéri’O with some technical materials, which are likely to be seized on by the fashion sector, the Korean Textile Development Institute, which is at the forefront of technical textiles for clothing, and a space dedicated to colleges, start-ups and research centres, organisers report.

Textile collections from Taiwan and an increased presence from component manufacturers (Korean and Chinese) will be fundamental at Avantex.

A meeting place and place for inspiration, the agora at Avantex Paris will have a wall of images to highlight the activities taking place there and will aim to demonstrate the links between technology and clothing through a series of presentations and round tables moderated by experts on the inherent issues in the market and which make up the exhibition: Materials & Components / Clothing & Accessories / Prototype Studio / Smart Retail.

Since innovation is driven by start-ups, Avantex Paris also wants to serve as a catalyst for innovative talent and to promote creative projects with the Fashion Pitch competition. This will allow the winner to exhibit ideas at the show in February 2018 and to promote it using a video presentation worth 1200 euros offered by Wirate, partner of the contest.

Avantex Paris is a 4 day event being held from 18th to 21st Sep 2017 at the Paris Le Bourget in Paris, France.
