Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris 2024 (01-03 July 2024) – Weaving the Future

07 June 2024: From July 1 to 3 2024, Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris will welcome over 1,000+ exhibitors to Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. As Europe’s leading platform for textile and apparel sourcing, this 3-day event brings together the essential global offer for fashion brands, from ready-to-wear to luxury.

A new summer edition in the heart of Paris
Spread over two levels of Paris Expo Porte de Versailles (halls 7.2 and 7. 3) this summer’s edition of Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris brings Messe Frankfurt France’s entire textile and apparel offering together in the heart of Paris: Texworld for fabrics and trims, Apparel Sourcing for finished apparel and fashion accessories, complemented by the Avantex sector, offering a selection of innovative solutions for a more efficient and sustainable fashion industry and Leatherworld, the platform dedicated to the leather industry, from raw materials to finished products.

On the textile side, Texworld’s offering will be structured around several major national pavilions. Turkish manufacturers, loyal to the show, will mostly be grouped under the banner of the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce (ITO). Korean manufacturers, led by the National Union of Textile Manufacturers (KOFOTI), also chose to present their know-how collectively, as did Indian embroiderers and weavers grouped around Texprocil, in charge of supporting the Indian cotton textile production, a strategic raw material for this country as it generates 12% of exports.

Taiwanese Eco-Textile, Denim Village and Focus on Leather
Several individual Taiwanese manufacturers, including Wisher, GrandeTex Development, Kiss Bride and embroiderer Ming Leurn, supported by the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF), will be showcasing ranges of sustainable fabrics bearing the Taiwan Eco-Textile label, whose properties are particularly well- suited to activewear technical garments. These companies will be featured in the Econogy Finder, Messe Frankfurt’s sustainability initiative, which includes some 80 companies.

Leather market trends unveiled at Leatherworld
Leather specialists will also be highly visible in the central part of Hall 7.3, where around twenty exhibitors from South Africa, Pakistan, China, Taiwan and Italy will occupy the 500 m2 reserved for the Leatherworld sector. At the heart of this space, the Leather Trend – a new feature for 2024 – will bring together the Italian manufacturers present at the show. Conceived in partnership with specialized publisher Edizioni AF and the Arsutoria School design center, it will enable visitors to discover current trends in the leather markets.

Focus on yarn with Yarn Expo
To further enhance the service and range of products on offer to buyers, a pavilion devoted entirely to yarns will be available for the first time in Paris. Organized in partnership with Yarn Expo, a trade show in Shanghai belonging to the Messe Frankfurt galaxy, this area will take visitors upstream in the yarn industry, showcasing cutting-edge companies from China, India, Pakistan and Taiwan.

An expanded range for Apparel Sourcing
This year, Apparel Sourcing will welcome over 500 manufacturers from a wide range of origins: Rwanda, Myanmar and Ethiopia will be represented alongside the great traditional nations such as China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India, which is making a real comeback this year, with 50+ garment manufacturers represented by the AEPC (Apparel Export Promotion Council) coming to meet European buyers.

A Near Sourcing Hub to connect suppliers
Near sourcing will not be forgotten. Buyers will be able to discover the offerings of some 50 companies from Portugal, Türkiye, Serbia and Morocco, and more, on the Near Sourcing Hub. The samples presented in this dedicated area are linked by QR Code to the B2B digital platform of Messe Frankfurt France partner Foursource.

An expanded offering of concept store products
New in 2024, Apparel Sourcing is expanding its offer with exclusive new categories in the fashion accessories sector: several manufacturers will be presenting jewelry and bag ranges to meet market demand. “The trend towards concentration in the fashion and apparel sector is driving retailers to expand their brand territory, explains Julien Schmoll, Marketing Director at Messe Frankfurt France. By offering concept store products, such as jewelry, bags and soon shoes (and other related products), we are participating in this new dynamic that buyers are demanding of us.”

A new Designer Hub at Avantex
The Avantex sector, dedicated to solutions and companies committed to more sustainable fashion, is also expanding its scope. Bringing together over twenty suppliers of innovative solutions for the digital and ecological transformation of the fashion industries (production, sourcing, digitization, resource management, traceability, Web3, AI…) in an open space, this year it is enriched by a Designer Hub. The Designer Hub will host initiatives such as the association of stylist Jean-Luc François, supported by Messe Frankfurt’s Texpertise Network, which trains people who are far from employment.

Avantex Fashion Pitch: solutions for tomorrow’s fashion
Organized each year as part of the Avantex trade show, the Avantex Fashion Pitch competition rewards the best innovative fashion and textile projects. Shortlisted candidates will present their work in a 5-minute pitch during the show, before a panel of expert judges including start-up mentor Claudia Cesiro, Tartan Centre director Élodie Lemaire-Nowinski, start-up investor and operator Irène Maffini, and fashion and luxury expert Jayne Estève-Curé. The winner will be offered a “Start-Up” booth for the next edition of Avantex, a €2,000 prize donated by Messe Frankfurt France and Texpertise network.
