Survey of the European Fabric Fairs for Spring/Summer 2010
published in Issue 140, August 2009
Not surprisingly, the numbers of exhibitors and visitors at Europe’s fashion fabric fairs for the spring/summer 2010 season were adversely affected by the global economic downturn. All the events, with one exception, were noticeably smaller and less busy than a year ago. The exception was Germany’s Munich Fabric Start, which has been progressing steadily in importance in recent years and managed to hold on to its gains this season. Significantly, Germany is regarded in the textile industry as a relatively stable market.
Reflecting the anxiety of the times, the fabrics for the spring/summer 2010 season are characterised by a mood of modest understatement. Manufacturers are showing a preference for timeless, classic themes in a reserved colour palette rather than taking risky new directions. The drive towards ever lighter, gossamer weights and transparency continues. But there are also heavier, structured fabrics, which lend themselves to body moulding shapes and tailoring.
Fabrics appear simple, and natural fibres predominate. But many fabrics are the result of complex fibre blends as well as the use of advanced manufacturing and finishing technologies aimed at achieving a superior drape and touch.
