The theme is thrivability – a flourishing movement that promotes respect for fashion, nature and people. Under this banner, the fair invites participants and visitors to strive for better quality and to shape our global and individual future with enthusiasm and positivity.

Fair highlights

This year, a new icon-based navigation system draws attention to the sustainable and technical aspects of the materials featured at the trend forums. The new system enables visitors to identify at a glance additional features and functions of the fabrics and trimmings on show.

Li Edelkoort will return with another special trend seminar unveiling exclusive content: Green Wave, incorporating the fashion trends for spring/summer 21, ‘stillness’ as the full colour forecast for autumn/winter 21/22, as well as the Green Book with recreationwear trends as the forecast for spring/summer 21.

As usual, the fair kicks off with a stellar panel discussion in the Keyhouse in Hall 5 on the first day. Leading international experts will explore the “Future of the Textile Value Chain”.
