In terms of trend concepts for 2020 this future is characterised by emotionality, empathy and community. This is expressed by ’What is love’ as a source of inspiration – passionate, playful, pragmatic. Spring/Summer 2020 indulges in a rich choice of fabrics, in innovative silhouettes, in philosophical wealth but also in tongue-in-cheek kitsch and – last not least – a new lightness at heart, which is never entirely uncritical.

More than 1,000 fabrics, additionals, denim & sportswear suppliers exhibit their latest product and trend developments in 1,800 collections from 29 to 31 January 2019 at the MOC Munich and in the Zenith Area. They are complemented by a growing number of service and sourcing providers as well as young brands and start-ups that present their philosophies and the ideology of forward-looking process solutions as well as solutions for resource-saving material sourcing and their areas of application.

This dynamic and mutually inspiring exhibitor structure brings about one of the most important international trade fair platforms for sourcing materials and in-depth networking and, hence, for linking fashion with technology with a view to shaping the future.


The Resource segment is the sourcing platform flagging up new dimensions of sustainability for an innovative and future-oriented production. This is how a forum initiated and supported by experts was established that offers comprehensive sustainability solutions. Boasting over 500 articles Resource showcases the latest developments in sustainable fabrics and findings as well as innovations in the categories such as recycled, organic, denim, Gots.


The Sourcing area in Atrium 3 of Hall 3 caters to the increasing demand for operational closed production cycles. The spectrum of services offered here by the internationally established manufacturing companies includes not only Cut-Make-Trim (CMT) solutions and high-end solutions but also comprehensive services like A-Z process solutions including sourcing processes.


Experience & Innovation. Industrie 4.0. The synergy of fashion and technology. Keyhouse has developed from the dynamism of companies cooperating on these future themes, start-ups, experimental research projects of leading colleges and universities as well as projects for unconventional resourcing into a think tank for progressive fashion technology. Its current focal themes include the extended area for installations related to sustainable innovations.

The development of new technologies, the efforts made for developing sustainable products and assuring transparent processes and supply chains are recognised by Munich Fabric Start with the HighTex Award. Awarded for the fifth time now, this innovation prize will again be presented as part of the trade fair at the Keyhouse on 29 January 2019 and the award winner will be on display during the trade fair.

The future is now. Brave and blue.

With this statement Bluezone kicks off 2019 and gives a clear signal for more transparency, resource-saving process solutions and conscious consumption. With its Ready Made Solutions RMS the Bluezone caters to an increasingly important demand for manufacturing and sourcing. Relevant lines will be exhibited by SC Ready Garment Technology, Lotus Garments, Denim Authority, and Pagada, to name but a few vendors.

Seminare, Workshops and Talks

Seminare, Workshops and Talks on the latest developments in the denim industry, about consumer needs, Blockchain, sustainability and techno denim all feature on the agenda of the Denim Dock in Hall 7. The idea and concept of New Heritage, the Festival for Timelessness, will be introduced by the masterminds of the event at the New Heritage living room staged at the Reception Lodge of the Bluezone outdoor premises. Furthermore, denim experts and influencers will inform visitors about perspectives and their interpretations of current denim innovations.
