Approximately 400 international exhibitors are expected at the next Apparel Sourcing Paris trade fair, which takes place from 14-17 September 2015.

This represents a record since the fair was launched in September 2011 and an increase in excess of 40% over September 2014, when the event welcomed 289 exhibitors.

“This growth shows that the event has established itself as the no. 1 European trade fair for global garment sourcing.  We have adopted the correct strategy for its development and are continuing to broaden its offer, which always puts an international range on show,” commented Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France.

Solutions and products

The ninth Apparel Sourcing Paris fair will include almost 90 new exhibitors from all points of the compass. Visitors will be able to benefit from a varied, high-quality offer, from basic to top of the range, covering all ready-to-wear for women, men and children, and accessories.

Every aspect of fashion will be represented, including knits, unstructured garments, casualwear, sportswear, denim, shirting, outerwear, evening wear, loungewear, businesswear, swimwear, and corporate clothing. The accessories segment, a developmental focus of the fair, will also welcome bags, gloves, ties and scarves.

Numerous solutions to the particular issues/problems of the European market, which always attract strong interest from exhibitors because of the recovery, will also be highlighted.

They will present collections in luxury materials such as cashmere, merino wool and silk for items destined for the top of the range, and items in natural materials, such as cotton, wool, linen and bamboo, and man-made fibres for the mid-range and entry-level markets.

Seven Seas Enterprise, a specialist in knits for men, women and children, concentrates on contract manufacturing, ODM (original design manufacturing) and private label for entry-level and middle-market ranges. Rashish Enterprises, a newcomer to Apparelsourcing Paris, will display very trendy, attractively-finished collections of bags and belts. This manufacturer is already working with many European fashion labels. Meenakshi, which specialises in ODM (original design manufacturing), is giving pride of place to shirting, sportswear and tailoring, and Mint Impex also offers a range of products for sportswear.
