The look & feel of the Bluezone was acomplished thanks to a new booth design.

« It was definitely a bold but also conscious move to give the BLUEZONE a new booth concept. The ongoing development over the past seasons and the high-quality orientation both in terms of exhibitors and visitors, were decisive for creating an ambience with more privacy, while providing room for creative and productive working at the same time » said Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director at MUNICH FABRIC START.




The brand new Denim Trend Area was a big and positive surprise. Trend forecasts, selected fabrics, trimming & labeling were highlighted through 8 distinctive and inspiring denim themes : Lightness, Denim Curators, Black, White, The Next, Performance, Neo Crafted and Summer Fun. The main trend featured, was light denim. Stonewashed, bleached or embellished. The Tendzone also highlighted how much brands from the Luxury market influence todays denim looks. It was quite a blast to see the novelty approach which the next generation of denim consumers has to « light & even stonewashes ».
