Two new halls
Munich Fabric Start presents with the new Keyhouse an innovation and creative centre and with Catalyzer an additional denim section.
These two new halls mean a total of 2,500 square metres featuring innovative and pioneering segments with great development potential that further sharpen the selective range of international suppliers. The portfolio of fabrics, additionals and services comprises some 1,700 collections from an unprecedented 1,000 plus suppliers.
At Keyhouse, the new Hall 5, progressive suppliers and global players from a variety of sectors will stage an epicentre of creativity and innovation. The atmospheric and charming industrial setting extending over 1,000 square metres will form a backdrop for pioneering smart textiles, future fabrics and technologies with a high degree of integration in textile products and high fashion. In the context of cross-sector macro trends new technologies and pioneering showcases will be in the spotlight alongside sustainable developments, expert workshops and trend seminars – in terms of both sustainability and technology and of finishing and research.
With over 100 denim and sportswear brands the Bluezone is also more highly subscribed than ever prompting its extension over 2 halls. The All Star Mills Bluezone in Hall 7 offers an international denim and sportswear portfolio of denim powerhouses and leisure excellence. Probing trend forums provide information on pioneering developments, finishes, colours and styles. At Catalyzer, the new Hall 6, denim heritage and blueprints will be showcased with a focus on sustainability and innovation. This interplay of key components in product design and presentation is also picked up on by the consciously chosen architecture of tradition dovetailing with modernity. The preserved building substance of solid stone walls is met with lightness and light thanks to large glass domes and open steel girders. The individual and original spatial layout is kept intact thanks to the exciting stand design arising here.
