In any industry, trade fairs are an opportunity to discover, prospect or find new partners. The textile industry is no exception to this rule and many trade fairs exhibit. However, a new generation of eco-responsible fashion fairs is emerging. They are very attractive and highlight the latest textile innovations and responsible designers. In France and elsewhere, these fairs specialise in democratising eco-friendly and green production.
Mare Di Moda: the show for eco-friendly marine excellence
“Created for excellence”: the Mare Di Moda trade fair announces its colour and prestige. It is the appointment not to be missed by all fashion professionals looking for prestigious products. Mare Di Moda specialises in beachwear, sportswear and lingerie. The best collections of fabrics and accessories in Europe are on display. And only a few select visitors are allowed to attend. It is a truly avant-garde place where new market trends are presented and where contacts are made. The show aims to represent the best of the B2B marine fashion and beachwear sector.
At the 2017 edition, the Spanish company SEAQUAL launched its new fibre, which was a hit at the show. With an environmentally friendly concept, SEAQUAL offers a strong commitment. Indeed, it proposes to clean up the oceans from the waste that suffocates them. With the design of fibres created from the recycling of plastic waste found in the open sea, SEAQUAL proposed a real breakthrough in the fashion sector at this show. The long-term objective is to create an economic model to participate actively and effectively in the fight against marine pollution.
Interfiliere Paris (recycled lace)
Interfilière Paris is the meeting point for the world’s lingerie and swimwear industry and is a business accelerator and meeting place. A real source of inspiration, visitors can find out about the latest trends and create new partnerships at the show. Interfilière anticipates consumers’ expectations and highlights promising sectors. It is therefore a world-renowned trade fair that reflects a market in perpetual motion, particularly in terms of innovation and performance. Recycled lace or organic underwear are two innovations among many others that have been highlighted thanks to this event.
Who’s Next IMPACT
The reputation of the Who’s Next show is well established. More than 20 years after its creation, it has an international reputation in the ready-to-wear market. The show has changed a lot since then and offers new products in direct correlation with the collective awareness of ecology and the place of the textile industry in this environmental transition. Thus, IMPACT was born. This nomadic federative initiative dedicated to eco-responsible fashion is accessible to all. This part of the fair has become a real meeting place for committed fashion. It brings together many actors with responsible initiatives. The professionals who propose eco-responsible alternatives and the visitors who wish to follow this movement make it a real place of exchange and co-construction.
