After two intense and inspiring days at the trade fair, the VIEW PREMIUM SELECTION closed with a consistently high visitor frequency of brands from German-speaking and neighboring countries. The strong and well-developed collection of around 400 international preview programs at this early stage ranged from women's and menswear to denim & sportswear, Additionals and a newly selected ReSource Area for innovative and sustainable fabrics.
The unique atmosphere of the VIEW offers space and time for intensive exchange and solution-oriented discussions, for exclusive product and design developments.
The high and sustained visitor frequency by numerous designers, buyers, product managers and decision-makers from internationally active brands just show how important these parameters are in a time of upheaval and new challenges within the entire textile and fashion market.
Among them well-known brands like:
ADIDAS | AIRFIELD | BALDESSARINI | CINQUE | COMMA | COS | ESCADA | HOLY FASHION GROUP | HUGO BOSS | IRENE LUFT | IRIS VON ARNIM | JOOP! | LAGERFELD | LALA BERLIN | LIEBESKIND | LUISA CERANO | MAC | OUI GRUPPE | RIANI | DOROTHEE SCHUMACHER | SET | SPORTALM | STRELLSON | TALBOT RUNHOF | TOMMY HILFIGER
„I'm very surprised how many finished collections are already shown here. The quality of the offer is great. I've already had a lot of intensive discussions and was able to use the VIEW as a kick-off for the new season.“
Johnny Talbot, Talbot Runhof
Similarly, the conclusion of designer Hannes Roether:
„We are positively surprised by the offer and ambience of this fair. We have already seen great collections and have found something. Currently we are still in the middle of selling the summer collection. Nevertheless, we find this event a very charming staged event, to start this season into the new season.“
Fashion will be defined more than ever by innovations, exclusivity and individuality. At the same time, sustainability in all its complexity is one of the most important and intensively discussed topics to which highly sophisticated answers have been presented on the supplier side. The strategic orientation of VIEW as an early format for new developments, initial color and material trends and a high-quality product portfolio has once again been confirmed.
"Given the industry's momentum, many manufacturers have become the new standard for bringing the market to 80% of the collection. Many of our customers use the textile shows in September to complete their collection. We will readjust in the remaining weeks until the main fair, complete individual articles and still work on some textures. But the actual collection concept is already part of the VIEW.“
Mathias Menger, Yünsa
With the VIEW Premium Selection, the few weeks following MUNICH FABRIC START with the BLUEZONE as one of the most important international denim shows, the KEYHOUSE as a think tank for technology and sustainability as well as the new sourcing area in hall 8, the entire textile offer and associated services along the value chain ensured.
VIEW FABRIC NEWS
Winter focuses on novel wool qualities with pronounced technical refinements, new surface textures and maximum comfort.
In the VIEW Fabric Report attached, we have put together the fabric highlights of the new season for you.
On July 16th & 17th 2019, leading international fabric, trim and denim suppliers will present more than 400 collections featuring their preview programs and current developments for the new Autumn.Winter 20/21 season.
Two inspiring trade fair days provide the textile industry with a valuable insight into current material innovations, colour trends and future-oriented qualities, with which they can get a head start for planning and designing new collections.
The focus for Autumn.Winter 20/21 is on expressive, distinct velvets, vinyls, reflective surfaces, cords, transparencies, batiks, jacquards, burnouts, new camouflage and leopard prints, as well as glitz and glamour in surprising colour combinations and in a diverse range of techniques. On the other hand, there is a new circular holistic approach which showcases bio-based or bio-engineered materials, new alternative qualities and the revitalization of recycling and post-consumer waste. Sustainability is set to reach an entirely new dimension.
This has been determined through discussions with weaving mills and producers, dressmakers, design teams and buyers. There is a rethinking throughout all sectors and stages of the textile and fashion industry. It's about sustainability, conscious consumption, resource saving processes, efficiency and quality. An important part of this is the ubiquitous topic of digitizing materials. Properly developed and established, it promises both more sustainable and more efficient process solutions across the entire value chain, especially in design.
„Sustainability is part of almost all discussions we are currently having with our customers. To get all the information right, we've just released a special digital portfolio that shows all of our current sustainable product capabilities. Sustainability is something we work on every day. Our innovation and product development team are constantly looking for new alternatives. This is not just about alternative materials but also the improvement of work processes. Digital sample development and our online care label generator are just two examples of what is on our agenda.“
Sandra Bornemann, Design & Marketing Bornemann Etiketten
For the first time, a selection of ReSource articles will be presented at VIEW Premium Selection, enabling the early sourcing of sustainable and ecologically certified fabrics and trims. The latest material innovations include those from Dutel Creation, Bornemann Etiketten, Yilmaz Tekstil and Tejidos Royo.
The entire portfolio of collections presented at VIEW Premium Selection can be found at brands.viewmunich.com
New providers at VIEW are Alfa Fi Lematex, Bolognini, Eurostuffs, Eurotessile, Giolica, Lan. Cipriani, Lan. Guasti, Lan. Nova Fides, Leathertex- Lenzi Egisto, Manifattura the Carmignano, Mario Cambi & G, Texlover, and TGM International, from Italy, Yagi from Japan, Kipas Denim from Turkey and Escher Textil from Germany, among others.

|New Looks, Textile Innovations & Sustainability form
Focal Points for Spring.Summer 2020
|Two very well attended days at the trade fair, a growing openness to new looks and textile innovations and a suitably creative line-up featuring some 400 high-quality collections – this sums up the latest VIEW Premium Selection held in Munich from 4 to 5 December with its comprehensive overview of the new 2020 Spring.Summer season.|
|Welcoming the numerous purchasing teams, designers and product managers from leading European brands MUNICH FABRIC START’s Preview Textile Fair was very well attended over both days. The event was able to follow on from the growing visitor numbers posted at the last edition of VIEW in July which closed with a total plus of nearly 1,000 more visitors – a 4% rise over last year’s event.|
|This early and sustained opportunity to sound out the market is currently gaining new significance within a promising environment. This is because a big innovative push is now coming from fabrics themselves. With their texture, character and shape retention properties these now determine silhouettes and styles. This means sportiness through to the megatrend of athleisure is largely defined by the new fabrics looks. Furthermore, at the forefront of fashion there is a new desire for striking styles and intense colours. Though the wider market is also seeking renewal. This is both a challenge and opportunity for buyers and upstream textile suppliers alike who are meeting these market demands with a broad spectrum of new material blends, innovative finishes and surprising textures.
“We are seeing a greater openness towards new themes on the part of customers”, says Frank Weber who regularly exhibits with Velcorex at VIEW. In the past it often took several seasons before new fashion collections were taken up. Today, conversations here develop more quickly. This is also confirmed by the majority of exhibitors and visitors.
|“We come to VIEW to see new developments at a very early stage. And these expectations are also met. What’s more, this date a few weeks ahead of the major textile fairs is ideal for introducing other new themes to suppliers. This is the event’s key asset. Currently, we are seeking lovely, washed linen fabrics for our 2020 Pre-Spring Collection.”
Guido Ostländer, Head of Design Menswear at Cinque.
|Grainy textures and natural irregularities are being talked up in many quarters for Summer 2020 – translated as linen and linen blends or wool admixtures. Alongside this, sporty themes with nylons, cotton coatings and laminates for outerwear together with workwear inspirations are also becoming a promising topic. Classic checks and stripes take on a new twist thanks to new colours combinations or in a mix and match with prints. The colour scheme contrasts with those now tried and trusted summer darks in radiant, optimistic base tones with many fresh greens, yellows and an array of apricot through to red tones. There is lots of movement in menswear.|
|“Many customers are very consciously seeking non-flats. So things can now also become higher contrast in menswear and for summer thanks to textures and three-dimensionalities.”
Nicola Aldo Küpfer from Niggeler und Küpfer
|This means menswear fabrics are suitably multifaceted: alongside a new take on stripes, jacquards and sporty checks, striking geometrics can be found here through to micro patterns with a feminine slant.|
|The general idea is to create a line-up for an up-and-coming consumer base that breaks with traditional patterns in an entirely unbiased and “uncategorised” way, one that prefers an age and gender-neutral clothing style and, at the same time, seeks answers to the pressing issues of our time in the handling of resources. This was also the topic in intense conversations at the fringes of the trade fair as well as over lunch or in the evening when colleagues wound down from their day at the fair at VIEW X-Mas Moods.
In this context it becomes clear that the topic of sustainability is meeting ever greater acceptance, as confirmed by manufacturers Tejidos Royo or C.Pauli. Even the sometimes 100% higher prices are accepted by ever more end consumers – which in turn impacts the buyers of fabric collections. At the same time, there is an increasing expectation that sustainability will no longer be restricted to the product itself. Instead, the entire manufacturing process is moving into focus – starting from certified weaving mills through to the use of organic findings like buttons and tapes. Manufacturers have expanded this product range accordingly.
In these times of reduced budgets and capacities purchasing teams face new challenges. Fabric manufacturers meet buyers halfway here by also stepping up creativity levels early on.
|“The move to VIEW three seasons ago definitely proved a good one. Here we have a high-quality flow of visitors, a functioning network of agents and suppliers and everywhere a unique atmosphere. This entire setting is sure to have contributed to our positive business growth. Even the date of this event plays more and more into our hands as today we can take on new developments much earlier and also adapt them to the market.”
Alessandro Jentzsch, Cangioli
|Suppliers at VIEW have also adapted their portfolios to suit purchasing requirements. In addition to 80% of the finished summer collections many exhibitors also offer winter repeat ranges or immediate ranges. To supplement this the amount of early information via trend offices and colour specialists has seen a continual rise over recent years.|
|"VIEW’s continuing positive development confirms that in this sector since 2008 we have offered the perfect platform at the right time. The positive feedback from the market, the great appreciation of the services offered and the unique atmosphere all provide the right setting to further develop collections and individual topics interactively in direct exchange with suppliers at VIEW.”
Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director MUNICH FABRIC START
|BRANDS AT VIEW
Airfield | Akris | Bogner | Bugatti | Brax | Calvin Klein | Cinque | Comma | Escada | Holy Fashion Group | Hugo Boss | Joop | Lagerfeld | Lala Berlin | Laurèl | MAC | Marc Cain | Mavi Europe | Porsche Design | René Lezard | Riani | Schumacher | Set | Strellson | Strenesse | Tommy Hilfiger | Westwing uvm.
This means that also in its 10th year VIEW as a sector-wide offensive rises to the new challenges of the market in a productive way. This is appreciated by a growing community who VIEW has strengthened with its value promise for quality and innovation in its capacity as one of the most important preview trade fairs in Europe for over a decade now.
|29 to 31 January 2019 already sees the next edition of MUNICH FABRIC START present one of the largest international line-ups of fabrics and additionals featuring the dynamic interactive KEYHOUSE as an area for forward-looking textiles and solutions plus the BLUEZONE as one of the world’s largest denim shows.|
