APPAREL SOURCING Paris, France the No. 1 trade show in Europe for global sourcing of clothing

APPAREL SOURCING Paris, France the No. 1 trade show in Europe for global sourcing of clothing (updated August 27, 2017)

On the occasion of its 12th show, APPAREL SOURCING Paris is offering a huge variety of solutions for clothing and accessories production with registrations from almost 300 exhibitors already (+30 % compared with 2016)

“APPAREL SOURCING from February 6-9, 2017 at Le Bourget, Paris is, more than ever, in keeping with the times and offers visitors the most relevant products and services, whether this means sourcing with short lead times – this service was introduced fairly recently by suppliers in nearby regions and is becoming steadily more popular as it provides the vital skills and flexibility – or sourcing from suppliers who are farther away but who offer rare and original expertise”, notes Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France.

February 2017’s show will be marked by an increase in attendance by several countries that simply cannot be overlooked when it comes to global sourcing for clothing:

•             China, which is always represented by large numbers of exhibitors, expands the made-to-measure ranges, something that attests to the booming market for bespoke tailoring and suits.

•             Look out for some highly anticipated returns, given the success these exhibitors met with at the September show: we’re talking about Myanmar and Guatemala.

•             The offer at Apparel Sourcing gives a broad overview of the skills from the Indian sub-continent: Bangladesh, Pakistan, attending with its denim ranges, and India (under the aegis of Texprocil) is increasing significantly in numbers.

•             Morocco, a major supplier offering products from the nearby region with short lead times, makes a substantial contribution to the show, thanks to a novel method in terms of presentation: companies are to be found in the various segments depending on their respective expertise. And in the Shawls & Scarves show – the accessories showcase that includes a Moroccan trimmings supplier among the exhibitors

Fashion on Display, the space that brings together the most relevant creations of the season, now becomes The Dressing. Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud, the shows’ Art Directors, are proposing a new showcase that is more representative of the myriad skills demonstrated by exhibitors. Clothes are presented there according to product family and organised similarly to a wardrobe, arranged as in the retail trade.

Presentations about the latest news from the industry and from exhibitors will provide a variety of additional information in an entertaining way for visitors to APPAREL SOURCING Paris, apart from the fashion shows, real showcases of contractors’ skills, which will be unveiled in a digital, high-tech production. Look out for the Moroccan catwalk show presenting sportswear and denim on Tuesday February 7, 2017 at 1200 noon.

Visiting the exhibition could not be more convenient: APPAREL SOURCING PARIS belongs to the group of related trade shows organised by Messe Frankfurt France, held in one and the same location, on the same dates and to which entry is free upon presentation of professional credentials: Avanprint, Avantex and Texworld Paris.
