SHIMA SEIKI to exhibit at Pitti Filati with flat knitting machine

SHIMA SEIKI ITALIA S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of leading Japanese computerized knitting solutions provider SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., will exhibit at the 90th edition of the Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition in Florence, Italy. Products exhibited will include the N.SVR®123SP computerized flat knitting machine as well as APEXFiz™ design software.

SHIMA SEIKI ITALIA S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of leading Japanese computerized knitting solutions provider SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., will exhibit at the 90th edition of the Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition in Florence, Italy. Products exhibited will include the N.SVR®123SP computerized flat knitting machine as well as APEXFiz™ design software.

The N.SVR®123SP computerized knitting machine features a special loop presser bed, capable of producing hybrid inlay fabrics with both knit and weave characteristics. Demand for such novel fabrics are very high across a wide range of applications, from fashion apparel to sportswear, innerwear, outerwear, uniforms and other functional clothing, as well as home furnishing and technical textiles. Shown in 18G at the SHIMA SEIKI booth, N.SVR®123SP will also feature the special i-Plating option, capable of alternating yarn colors in any pattern, producing jacquard-like designs using plain jersey stitch. Plating can be performed within the same course and for individual needles. In combination with the loop presser and spring-type moveable sinker system even greater diversity in knit design is possible. An SVR®123SP machine in 14G with i-Plating option will also be on display at the booth of yarn spinner IAFIL S.p.A. as well.

APEXFiz™ is subscription-based design software that maintains the proven functions that have made SHIMA SEIKI’s SDS®-ONE APEX series design systems so popular with fashion designers. Installed on personal computers, those strengths are now enhanced with the added versatility to adapt to different work styles and business environments including teleworking and telecommuting. APEXFiz™ software supports the creative side of fashion from planning and design to colorway evaluation, realistic fabric simulation and 3D virtual sampling. Virtual samples are a digitized version of sample making that are accurate enough to be used effectively as prototypes, replacing physical sampling and consequently reducing time, cost and material that otherwise go to waste. APEXFiz™ thereby helps to realize sustainability and digitally transform the fashion supply chain.

APEXFiz™ along with SHIMA SEIKI’s yarnbank™ digital yarn web platform are featured at a special section launched at the previous session of Pitti Filati no. 89 called Pitti Studios. Pitti Studios is a content production service that yarn companies exhibiting at Pitti Filati can use for their own promotion. Yarn companies provide a piece of yarn, which is digitized on yarnbank™ and used to simulate photorealistic fabric on APEXFiz™. This is then processed by a creative studio specializing in digital content to provide static and animated 3D virtual representations. The process shows how to use the latest DX tools to provide accurate representation of a finished garment without having to produce any fabric, converting the conventionally wasteful process of sample-making into a sustainable one.

Continuing from past editions of Pitti Filati are knit samples produced in collaboration with Italian designer Vittorio Branchizio.

It also outperforms the best available dyeing technologies for cellulosic fibers and blends in terms of value by reducing recipe costs, minimizing processing costs and eliminating reprocessing.

ERIOPON® E3-SAVE is another next-generation water-saving innovation. An all-in-one textile auxiliary for polyester processing, it allows pre-scouring, dyeing and reduction clearing to be combined in a single bath and eliminates the need for anti-foaming products. This shortens processing time and saves water and energy.

rPET processing innovations
As leading brands begin to work towards a circular economy for textiles, mills are being asked to overcome challenges associated with transforming recycled polyester (rPET) into high-quality new textiles. Huntsman Textile Effects is presenting an end-to-end solution for achieving full whites and consistent shades on rPET with right-first-time quality. This eco-friendly rPET processing solution includes pre-treatment chemicals, fluorescent whitening agents, state-of-the-art washfast dyes, and finishing solutions for high-performance protection and comfort.

Washfast disperse dyes for polyester and man-made fibers
TERASIL® BLUE W is the latest addition to Huntsman’s TERASIL® W/WW range of washfast disperse dyes for polyester and man-made fibers and their blends. Crucially, it is not sensitive to reduction, leading to higher reproducibility, higher right first-time results and operational excellence. It also reduces overall water and energy consumption, as well as water effluent. TERASIL® BLUE W offers high build-up for deep blues that stay vibrant.

Next-generation odor control
In partnership with Sciessent, Huntsman Textile Effects presents antimicrobial and odor-control solutions to Colombiatex to enable mills to produce garments that smell fresh for longer and need less frequent washing. Featured is Sciessent’s new anti-odor technology - NOBO™. It is specifically designed to reduce odors in natural and synthetic fabrics; it can be incorporated into virtually any fabric. From base layer and activewear tops to socks and underwear to jeans and chinos. It offers a cost-effective way to upgrade everyday products and add value to your customers.

“Sustainability is becoming a priority for regulators in South America and around the world, and consumers are increasingly keen to make a difference by choosing green brands,” said Ben Powell, Commercial Director Americas, Huntsman Textile Effects. “Huntsman is redefining what’s possible to help textile and apparel companies make the shift to more environmentally sustainable operations while enhancing their competitiveness at the same time. Our innovations make it possible to benefit from efficiency gains and resource savings in the factory as you deliver products that stand out in the market.”

The world’s leading composites event will now take place from May 3rd to 5th, 2022, at the same venue Paris Nord Villepinte, as well as online via the JEC World Connect digital platform.

JEC World gathers the whole value chain of the composite materials industry in Paris, France every year and is “the place to be” for composites professionals from all over the world. The event brings together not only all major global companies, but also innovative startups in the field of composites and advanced materials, experts, academics, scientists, and R&D leaders. JEC World is also the “festival of composites”, offering a unique showcase of what composites can offer to various application sectors, from aerospace to marine, from construction to automotive, and an unlimited source of inspiration for participants from these industries.

JEC World is also the “festival of composites”, offering a unique showcase of what composites can offer to various application sectors, from aerospace to marine, from construction to automotive, and an unlimited source of inspiration for participants from these industries.

“We are fully dedicated to supporting the composites industry and to fostering its development via our events and media activities. Exhibitors and partners are strongly supporting JEC World, their leading event and want to meet in person in 2022 to activate business, share knowledge and highlight innovations. Postponing from March to May is a way to offer improved conditions to satisfy the industry requirements for such a trade fair as JEC World”, says Eric Pierrejean, CEO of JEC Group.

The JEC World team has decided to postpone the event after conducting a survey of its exhibitors and partners, confirming that a large majority is in favour of the new dates in May. As already planned, for three days, the event will offer for the first time a digital platform, JEC World Connect, in parallel to the in-person event in Paris for an augmented digital experience. Even after the show, via the JEC Web TV, unique content will be available to extend the reach of the event.

“Our main concern is to create the best possible conditions for our participants for successful networking, inspiration and business success. With a postponement of eight weeks we can enable this and offer to the industry the event it deserves. Taking the decision now, after consultation of all exhibitors, was necessary to give them planning and preparation visibility,” adds Thomas Lepretre, VP Events, Sales and Operations.

Im Sommer werden wir dann verstärkt auch den internationalen Vertreter*innen aus Industrie, Handel und Design in unserer Heimatstadt eine neue Plattform bieten.“

„Trotz massiver pandemiebedingter Einschränkungen konnten wir der Branche bei einer Vielzahl an Events erste Inspirationen und Impulse liefern. Nach der langen Pause waren der Austausch und das Get-together dringend nötig, wenngleich wir leider nur einen Bruchteil dessen verwirklichen konnten, was unser Konzept vorsieht. Wir starten mit voller Energie in die neue Saison und freuen uns gemeinsam auf die Juli-Ausgabe mit den Premieren der großen internationalen Tradeshows in Frankfurt“, sagt Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies der Messe Frankfurt.

Klarer Fokus auf Nachhaltigkeit
Stylisch kuratierte Fashion-Statements mit klarem Fokus auf Nachhaltigkeit: Bei der Neonyt Installation trafen Independent- und Newcomer-Labels auf etablierte Marken. Diese Multi-Brand-Looks wurden künstlerisch-innovativ in Szene gesetzt. Die daran anschließende Show von Susumu Ai, veranstaltet vom Fashion Council Germany, unterstrich eindrücklich, dass nachhaltige Mode auf die internationalen Runways gehört. Auch die hybrid ausgerichtete Konferenz Fashionsustain thematisierte den wichtigen Transformationsprozess der Textil- und Modebranche. Hochkarätige Speaker*innen teilten Insights mit einem internationalen Publikum und führenden Branchenvertreter*innen rund um die Themen Attitude-Behaviour-Gap, Konsument*innenverhalten, unternehmerische Sorgfaltspflicht und Nachhaltigkeit am Point-of-Sale.

Erfolgreiche Premiere von AAAREA
AAAREA, das Festival zur Frankfurt Fashion Week, hat Mode für Fashion-Fans im Stadtgebiet erlebbar gemacht. „Das Festival war das erste seiner Art, das wir parallel zur Frankfurt Fashion Week realisiert haben. Mit dieser Premiere sind wir sehr gut in die Event-Reihe gestartet“, stellt Claus Fischer, einer der drei Geschäftsführer von AAAREA, fest. Auch im kommenden Juli wird AAAREA wieder wichtiger Bestandteil der Frankfurt Fashion Week sein – dann mit deutlich mehr Präsenz-Formaten.

Ausblick: Neue Saison, neue Formate
Vom 4. bis 8. Juli 2022 wird Frankfurt am Main in voller Bandbreite zur Bühne für die internationale Fashionbranche. Dabei feiern zwei brandneue Formate ihre Premiere: Die Val:ue wird die neue Homebase für Quality- und Lifestyle-Fashion im Mainstream-Bereich, veranstaltet von der Messe Frankfurt. The Ground, organisiert von der Premium Group, komplettiert das Programm als Fashion-Festival für eine purpose-orientierte Generation. Dabei richtet die Frankfurt Fashion Week im Juli 2022 wieder verstärkt den Fokus auf Nachhaltigkeit. Neben der Neonyt, der Community-Plattform für Mode, Nachhaltigkeit und Innovationen, sind hierzu weitere Event-Formate in Planung, unter anderem eine Fortsetzung der erfolgreichen Konferenz „The New European Bauhaus – Werkstatt der Zukunft“, organisiert vom Fashion Council Germany in Kooperation mit der Frankfurt Fashion Week. Auch in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Conscious Fashion & Lifestyle Network und dem United Nations Office for Partnerships werden weitere Formate realisiert.

Promising conditions for Cinte Techtextil China in September

Promising conditions in the technical textiles and nonwovens market are expected to provide ample opportunities for suppliers at this year’s Cinte Techtextil China. The fair, which last year saw 366 exhibitors and 14,868 visits, will take place from 6 – 8 September 2022 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Flexible exhibiting options will once again be available for overseas companies.

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, explained the positive conditions that exhibitors should expect at the fair thusly: “The pandemic has led to a surge in Chinese exports of both technical textiles and nonwovens, the latter in particular. The country remains the largest supplier of nonwovens, comprising one-third of the global total, yet still requires the advanced offerings of overseas machinery suppliers, as well as supplies of raw materials, to support its export production.”

The country remains the largest supplier of nonwovens, comprising one-third of the global total, yet still requires the advanced offerings of overseas machinery suppliers, as well as supplies of raw materials, to support its export production.”

Ms Wen continued: “Domestically, China is seeing increasing consumption of functional apparel, sportswear and personal protection items. Heightened health and sanitary regulations and new hygiene habits will also continue to drive demand, especially for nonwovens, well into the future. There has also been a post-pandemic boost in demand for filter, greenhouse covering and high-density fabrics amongst others. All of this adds up to a wealth of opportunities for overseas companies to take advantage of, as was experienced in the 2021 edition of the fair.”

Exhibitor and visitor experiences in 2021
“Our organisation promotes US cotton and we hope to use this platform to meet more companies and brands in the nonwovens industry who are interested in US cotton, and to meet up with old friends to discuss the current situation and industry trends. We also found some new potential clients this time.” Mr Eric Ni, Senior Manager, China Supply Chain Marketing, Fabrics, Garments and Nonwovens, Cotton Council International, USA

“Cinte Techtextil China is a professional exhibition that brings together cutting-edge technologies and products, allowing us to quickly learn about innovative technology trends in the industry. I’ve been particularly impressed by the biodegradable products in the Innovation Showcase. In addition, I am sourcing mask-related products and mops, and I have found some companies that I’m interested in.” Ms Claire Zhang, Senior Scientist, Personal Health, Philips Research China, Philips (China) Investment Co Ltd, China

Neonyt: Fashionsustain setzt Transformationsimpulse in Frankfurt

Mit ihrer Frankfurt City Edition 2022 präsentierte sich die Neonyt-Konferenz Fashionsustain am 19. Januar 2022 in hybrider Form: Limitiert und unter strengen Hygienebedingungen live vor Ort oder im Livestream gab es Impuls-Insights, Panel Discussions und Fashion Deep-Dives zum Status Quo der Textil- und Modebranche. Mit dabei waren unter anderem der Grüne Knopf, Fond of, der German Design Council und Tchibo.

Unter dem Motto Change the set-up beleuchtete die Fashionsustain, das internationale und multidisziplinäre Konferenzformat der Neonyt, am 19. Januar 2022 im Rahmen der Frankfurt Fashion Week, wie die Textil- und Modebranche den laufenden Transformationsprozess bewältigen und sich für zuküftige Herausforderungen wappnen kann. Die Themen Konsumentenverhalten, unternehmerische Sorgfaltspflichten und Nachhaltigkeit am Point-of-Sale standen dabei im Fokus.

Unter dem Motto Change the set-up beleuchtete die Fashionsustain, das internationale und multidisziplinäre Konferenzformat der Neonyt, am 19. Januar 2022 im Rahmen der Frankfurt Fashion Week, wie die Textil- und Modebranche den laufenden Transformationsprozess bewältigen und sich für zuküftige Herausforderungen wappnen kann. Die Themen Konsumentenverhalten, unternehmerische Sorgfaltspflichten und Nachhaltigkeit am Point-of-Sale standen dabei im Fokus.

Change the Mindset – Änderung des Konsumverhaltens
Den Auftakt zur hybriden City Edition im Frankfurter Danzig am Platz machte Neurowissenschaftlerin Prof. Dr. Maren Urner mit einem Impulsvortrag zum Thema Change the Mindset. Im Zentrum stand dabei die sogenannte Attitude-Behaviour-Gap und wie wir diese überwinden können. Prof. Dr. Urner riet zu einem positiven Mindset und zitierte dabei den US-amerikanischen Psychotherapeuten Steve de Shazer: „Über Porbleme zu reden, kreiert Probleme, über Lösungen zu reden, kreiert Lösungen.“

Im anschließenden Deepdive reflektierte sie in einer Runde mit Karin Ziegler von Blutsgeschwister und Lutz Dietzold vom German Design Council, warum Menschen anders handeln als sie beabsichtigen und wie sich unsere eigene Haltung, und damit die Haltung der ganzen Branche, in Zukunft noch stärker in unserem Verhalten widerspiegeln kann. Zu der Frage, ob echte Veränderung vom Individuum oder dem System ausgehen sollte, sagte Prof. Dr. Urner: „Es braucht beides: Eine individuelle und eine systemische Veränderung. Aber die systemische Veränderung kann nur gelingen, wenn wir individuell anfangen. Denn das System sind wir Menschen.“

Change Responsibilities – Lieferketten der Zukunft
„Viele Unternehmen berichten, dass Maßnahmen wie die UN-Leitprinzipien ihnen helfen, sich nachhaltig zu positionieren, zum Beispiel in den Bereichen Risikoanalyse und Monitoring.“ sagte Christine Moser-Priewich vom Grünen Knopf in dessen Panel Discussion zu unternehmerischen Sorgfaltspflichten mit Axel Schröder der Tchibo GmbH und Hannes Weber von Fond of. Axel Schröder ergänzte: „Der Grüne Knopf war für uns eine gute Lernreise in Vorbereitung auf die anstehenden Lieferkettengesetze.“

Change the System – Revolution des Handels
„Konsumentinnen und Konsumenten mit nachhaltigen Absichten haben eine schwere Zeit“, sagte Christian Salewski vom Research-Start-up Flip. „Sie können oft nicht zwischen grünen Marketing-Kampagnen und ehrlichen Absichten unterscheiden.“ In seinem Insight-Talk illustrierte er, wie Flip Konsument*innen im undurchsichtigen Nachhaltigkeitsmarkt unterstützen und für mehr Transparenz sorgen möchte. Als Beispiel gab er Einblicke hinter die Kulissen der Sneakerjagd, eines der in der Branche meistdiskutierten Videos des vergangenen Jahres, in dem Flip gemeinsam mit NDR, Die Zeit und prominenten Persönlichkeiten aufdeckte, dass Sneaker nicht immer so recycelt werden wie von den dahinter stehenden Brands angegeben. „Aus der Politik und von Verbaucherschützerinnen und -schützern haben wir das Feedback erhalten, dass unsere Recherche ein wichtiger Impuls war, um wieder Schwung in das Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz zu bringen.“

Abgerundet wurde die Fashionsustain City Edition mit einer Panel Discussion zum Thema Nachhaltigkeit am Point-of-Sale. Tanja Kliewe-Meyer von Like a Bird, Marco Schütte der EK Service Group und Frederik Gottschling vom Hessischen Handelsverband diskutierten, wie der Handel als Wissensvermittler dazu beitragen kann, Verbraucher*innen zu sensibilisieren und was das für die Belebung von Innenstädten bedeuten kann. „Wichtig ist es,“ so Tanja Kliewe-Meyer, „Erfahrungswelten zu schaffen, um Nachhaltigkeit in die Städte zu bringen. Die Zeiten der Monoläden durch die jedes Stadtzentrum gleich aussieht, sind vorbei.“

Change the perspective – on- und offline
Teilnehmer*innen konnten das internationale Konferenzformat der Neonyt im Rahmen der Frankfurt Fashion Week live vor Ort und digital verfolgen. In Frankfurt dabei waren unter anderem Vertreter*innen von Condé Nast Germany, Deutscher Fachverlag und FAZ, Hohenstein und Rat für Formgebung. Den Livestream verfolgten neben internationalen Modeinstituten wie dem German Design Council auch Unternehmensvertreter*innen von Breuniger, C&A, Closed, Gerry Weber, Givenchy/LVMH, Hallhuber, Hessnatur und Kastener & Öhler sowie die Redaktionen von Fashion United, Luxiders, RTL, Spiegel Online und TextilWirtschaft.

Premiere am Main: voller Erfolg für die Neonyt Installation

Auf ihrer Fashion Installation brachte die Neonyt am Dienstagabend, den 18. Januar 2022, die Modebranche erstmalig während der Frankfurt Fashion Week in der Mainmetropole zusammen.

Die Gäste wurden Teil einer exklusiven Präsentation sorgfältig kuratierter Multi-Brand-Looks – immer unter dem Zeichen der Nachhaltigkeit.

Ein gelungener Auftakt: Am Dienstag, den 18.01.2022, feierte die Neonyt, Community-Plattform für Mode, Nachhaltigkeit und Innovation, um 17:30 Uhr ihr Debüt in der neuen Homebase Frankfurt am Main nach zwei Jahren coronabedingter Pause. Im Zuge der Frankfurt Fashion Week (FFW) wurde das Atelier Lihotzky im Danzig am Platz im Frankfurter Ostend zur Bühne. Supported wurde das Event von der Naturkosmetik-Brand Dr. Hauschka. Rhein-Main Lokalkolorit: Fashion People und Nachhaltigkeitsprofis, Brancheninsider*innen sowie Stakeholder*innen aus Politik und Medien kamen unter den aktuell geltenden Corona-Regeln zusammen, um sich von den neusten Trends in Sachen nachhaltiger Mode inspirieren zu lassen und sich endlich wieder persönlich zu begegnen, auszutauschen und miteinander zu connecten. Independent- und Newcomer-Label trafen auf etablierte Marken und Designer*innen-Pieces, die an dreizehn Models in stylisch kuratierten Multi-Brand-Looks künstlerisch in Szene gesetzt wurden.

„Endlich wieder zusammenkommen, endlich wieder Sustainable Fashion live und in Farbe erleben – darauf haben wir lange gewartet. Und was soll ich sagen, unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen: die erste Neonyt Installation war ein voller Erfolg. Von den teilnehmenden Brands, über das künstlerische Konzept, das Publikum und unsere Location – es hat einfach alles gestimmt. Vor allem freue ich mich, dass wir der Branche nach einer langen Pause wieder einen Treffpunkt zum inspirieren und connecten bieten konnten, wenn auch in einem kleineren Rahmen“, sagt Bettina Bär, Show Director Neonyt. „Nach diesem Auftakt in unserem neuen Zuhause Frankfurt bin ich mir sicher: Das war ein guter Anfang. Im Sommer werden wir mit der Neonyt endlich in vollem Umfang ein wichtiges Zeichen für die Transformation der internationalen Modeindustrie aus unserer Heimatstadt senden – ich kann es kaum erwarten.“

Immer im Blick der Installation: die Fokusthemen Air, Water, Circularity und Social. Schon in den vergangenen Saisons haben Water & Air eine zentrale Bedeutung für die Neonyt gehabt. Darüber hinaus wurde Circularity als eines der Zukunftsthemen der Branche ausgewählt und mit Social ein besonderer Fokus auf die Menschen gelegt, die in den Wertschöpfungsketten arbeiten. Mehr als nur Fashion: Die Inhalte der Fashion Präsentation sind über die visuelle Komponente hinausgegangen, so wurde die künstlerische Inszenierung von Audio- und Soundaufnahmen zu Fakten und Fragen rund um Sustainable Fashion untermalt und mit großformatigen Hintergründen gestützt.

Düsseldorf Fashion Days findet vom 26. Januar bis zum 02. Februar 2022 statt

In enger Abstimmung mit dem verantwortlichen Ordnungsamt erarbeitet, können die Düsseldorf Fashion Days vom 26. Januar bis zum 02. Februar 2022 unter Einhaltung der 3G-Regeln stattfinden. Die traditionelle Order und Kollektionssichtung der Fall/Winter-Mode 2023 kann durch die Vergabe von Einzelterminen sowie strenger Hygiene-Auflagen und starker Entzerrung umgesetzt werden.

In über 600 Showrooms platzieren Einkäufer:innen aus ganz Deutschland ihre Order. Die erwartete Frequenz ist niedriger als im Sommer, dennoch schätzt die Branche nach wie vor die Verlässlichkeit des Orderstandortes Düsseldorf sowie den persönlichen Austausch vor Ort. Dabei obliegt es jedem Showroom selbst, das Sicherheitskonzept auf 2G bzw. um 2G+ zu erweitern. Alle etablierten Networking-Formate wie die DFD Lounge entfallen.

Kontinuität, selbst in turbulenten Zeiten
Dass die Düsseldorf Fashion Days stattfinden können, ist ein wichtiges Signal für das gesamte Ressort Mode und unterstreicht die Relevanz des Standortes, auch unter den Umständen der Pandemie, sagt Theresa Winkels, Amtsleiterin der Wirtschaftsförderung Düsseldorf. „Im vergangenen Sommer ließen sich das Fashion-Business sowie branchenübergreifende neue Formate unter dem Dachbegriff DFD perfekt vereinen. Diese positive Entwicklung fokussieren wir von städtischer Seite auch weiterhin und setzen auf perspektivische Weiterentwicklung der ansässigen Modewirtschaft.“

Fashion, Zeitgeist, Düsseldorf: DFD begeistert mit zweiter Magazin Ausgabe
Zum Auftakt der diesjährigen Düsseldorf Fashion Days erscheint am 14. Januar 2022 das zweite DFD Magazin. Mit der ersten Ausgabe, die im Juli 2021 veröffentlicht wurde, konnte bereits ein absolutes Erfolgsformat etabliert werden, das nun seine Fortsetzung feiert. Neben einem sorgfältig kuratierten Themen-Mix aus Experten-Interviews, Trendreportings sowie Ausgeh- und Insider-Tipps der Düsseldorfer Kreativszene, erhalten Fachpublikum sowie Fashion-Begeisterte auf rund 30 Seiten exklusive Einblicke in ein zukunftsorientiertes Ordergeschehen. Das DFD Magazin präsentiert die Rheinmetropole authentisch, nahbar und informativ und fungiert als strategisch wichtiges Tool für die nationale Wahrnehmung des Modestandorts Düsseldorf.

Polestar als exklusiver DFD Shuttle-Partner
Mit E-Power durch die Düsseldorf Fashion Days: Vom Medienhafen über das Areal Böhler, der Kaiserswerther Straße oder der Derendorfer Allee bis hin zum Karl-Arnold-Platz – die Fashion Net Shuttles fahren von Freitag, 28. bis Montag, 31. Januar 2022, täglich von 9:00 bis 19:00 Uhr, alle relevanten Order-Hotspots an.

Fashionsustain lädt zum neuen Format: Frankfurt City Edition

Getreu dem diesjährigen Motto Change the Set-up passt Fashionsustain, das internationale Konferenzformat der Neonyt, das Setting den aktuellen gesundheitspolitischen Rahmenbedingungen an und startet am Mittwoch, den 19. Januar mit kompaktem Programm rund um die Themen Nachhaltigkeit, Lieferkette und Handel. In ihrer hybriden City Edition empfängt die Konferenz mitten in der Frankfurter Innenstadt im Danzig am Platz eine begrenzte Anzahl an Gästen und wird außerdem live übertragen.

Am 19. Januar 2021 beleuchten Brancheninsider*innen von 11 bis 14 Uhr in Impulsen, Deep Dives und Panels die aktuellen Herausforderungen, die es für die Fashion-Welt zu meistern gilt und liefern wertvolle Ausblicke und Lösungsansätze.

Getreu dem diesjährigen Motto Change the Set-up passt Fashionsustain, das internationale Konferenzformat der Neonyt, das Setting den aktuellen gesundheitspolitischen Rahmenbedingungen an und startet am Mittwoch, den 19. Januar mit kompaktem Programm rund um die Themen Nachhaltigkeit, Lieferkette und Handel. In ihrer hybriden City Edition empfängt die Konferenz mitten in der Frankfurter Innenstadt im Danzig am Platz eine begrenzte Anzahl an Gästen und wird außerdem live übertragen.

Am 19. Januar 2021 beleuchten Brancheninsider*innen von 11 bis 14 Uhr in Impulsen, Deep Dives und Panels die aktuellen Herausforderungen, die es für die Fashion-Welt zu meistern gilt und liefern wertvolle Ausblicke und Lösungsansätze.

Das Opening übernimmt Neurowissenschaftlerin Prof. Dr. Maren Urner mit einem Impulsvortrag zum Thema „Change the Mindset“. Im Zentrum steht dabei die sogenannte Attitude-Behaviour-Gap: Ein wissenschaftliches Phänomen, nach dem Verbraucher*innen in Studien zunehmend angeben, Wert auf Nachhaltigkeit zu legen und für ein nachhaltig produziertes Produkt mehr Geld ausgeben zu wollen, während weitere Studien bestätigen, dass der Preis nach wie vor eines der entscheidendsten Kaufkriterien ist und damit das tatsächliche Konsumverhalten hinter den guten Absichten zurückbleibt. Prof. Dr. Maren Urner erklärt, wie man dieses Dilemma in den Griff bekommt und das Gehirn von der erlernten Hilflosigkeit in nachhaltiges Handeln umprogrammieren kann.

Im anschließenden Deepdive reflektiert sie in einer Runde mit Karin Ziegler von Blutsgeschwister und Lutz Dietzold vom German Design Council, warum Menschen anders handeln als sie beabsichtigen und wie sich unsere eigene Haltung, und damit die Haltung der ganzen Branche, in Zukunft noch stärker in unserem Verhalten widerspiegeln kann.

Der Grüne Knopf lädt zu einer Panel Discussion: Sebastian Herold vom Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung diskutiert mit Axel Schröder der Tchibo GmbH und Hannes Weber von Fond of, wo der Grüne Knopf nach seiner Einführung vor zwei Jahren steht, was sich in dieser Zeit hinsichtlich unternehmerischer Sorgfaltspflichten getan hat und wie diese Entwicklung weitergehen wird.

Dass auch Brands nicht von der Attitude-Behaviour-Gap gefeit sind, beweist Christian Salewski vom Research-Start-up Flip: In seinem Insight-Talk „Sneaker Hunt – What happens to our old shoes?“ gibt er Einblicke hinter die Kulissen eines der in der Branche meistdiskutierten Videos des vergangenen Jahres: Gemeinsam mit NDR, Die Zeit und prominenten Persönlichkeiten hat Flip aufgedeckt, dass Sneaker nicht immer so recycelt werden wie von den dahinter stehenden Brands angegeben.

Abgerundet wird die Fashionsustain City Edition mit einer Panel Discussion zum Thema „Sustainability at the Point of Sale – How do I explain it to my Customers?”. Tanja Kliewe-Meyer von Like a Bird, Marco Schütte der EK Service Group und Vertreter*innen des Hessischen Handelsverbands besprechen, wie der Handel als Wissensvermittler dazu beitragen kann, Verbraucher*innen zu sensibilisieren und was das für die Belebung von Innenstädten bedeuten kann.

Die Konferenz richtet sich weiterhin an Fachpublikum und wird vor Ort in deutscher Sprache stattfinden. Der Livestream wird auf Deutsch und Englisch angeboten. B2B-Besucher*innen sowie Pressevertreter*innen können sich für eine physische Teilnahme online vorab auf www.fashionsustain.com registrieren. Die Veranstaltung findet unter 2G-Plus-Regeln statt, die entsprechenden Nachweise sind vor Ort zu erbringen.

Die Fashionsustain wird auf der eigenen Website und zudem im digitalen FFW Studio der Frankfurt Fashion Week live übertragen: https://frankfurt.fashion/de/studio

New dates for Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles and Yarn Expo

The Spring Editions of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles and Yarn Expo will now take place from 14 – 16 April 2022 instead of their original March date. They will continue to be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) alongside CHIC and PH Value.
 
“With the evolving situation of the pandemic globally, we have decided to hold our three spring fairs in mid-April,” Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained. “At this stage, we are still processing how the Omicron variant affects the hosting of large-scale events, so this new date provides us and our stakeholders with extra time to plan accordingly so we can ensure the fairs take place in a safe environment.”
 
“We are hoping to continue the momentum that was generated at last year’s Autumn Editions where our many returning international exhibitors were well received, as well as to capture the opportunities in the domestic market with strong growth in production, revenue and profit recorded in the first three quarters of 2021.”

Maison & Objet Paris postponed from January to March 2022

Since few days, most countries have been facing a new wave of Covid, reinforced by the rapid expansion of the Omicron variant. Impacted by this surge, many companies among the 1,700 companies that have confirmed they will attend M&O in January at the Parc des Expositions of Paris-Nord Villepinte, indicate that they don’t want their employees to take risks and are now alerting to the disruptions they are experiencing in their operations. The obligations of compliance with isolation rules, even when people are vaccinated, and the numerous work absences are in fact starting to seriously disrupt the functioning of their services, supply or production circuits.

Moreover, facing the peak of contamination, several countries are currently taking restrictive measures regarding international travel. Measures which are now delaying or discouraging visitors from confirming their attendance. In addition, the French government has announced, December 27th 2021 a 2.000 people gauge for major events, so probably fairs such as Maison&Objet Paris.

In addition, the French government has announced, December 27th 2021 a 2.000 people gauge for major events, so probably fairs such as Maison&Objet Paris.

Under these circumstances, seeking to avoid a risky situation and committed to making all efforts to ensure an optimal return on investment for exhibitors, buyers and specifiers, the SAFI decides to postpone the next session of the Maison&Objet trade event from 24th to 28th March 2022. Period for which we hope to see an improvement in the situation.

Exhibitors who have already confirmed their registration and location may have the same location conditions, which will allow them to keep the same stand showcase. Likewise, visitors who have already ordered their badges for the January edition will of course have access to the show from March 24th to 28th, 2022.

With an opening scheduled for the day before, Maison&Objet In The City, an event organised on the sidelines of the Maison&Objet fair and offering a journey of discoveries in the heart of Parisian showrooms, will be held from 23 to 28 March 2022.

By postponing the fair until the end of Q1, SAFI wishes to bring together the best operational and healthy conditions to allow actors in the art of living, decoration, and design to be inspired, to accelerate their development and to forge new business relationships

In summary: the next editions of the Maison&Objet fairs will therefore be: March 24th - 28th, 2022 + September 8th - 12th, 2022

Messe Frankfurt cancels consumer goods fairs in January and February 2022

In view of the exponential worsening of the pandemic situation worldwide and the accompanying tightened travel and contact regulations, the consumer goods fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld, and Creativeworld are cancelled for January 2022 and Ambiente for mid-February 2022. The regionally-oriented trade fair Nordstil from 15 to 17 January 2022 in Hamburg will take place at the present time.

The easing of the pandemic situation that was still hoped for in December is no longer in sight. Instead, the situation is deteriorating worldwide with an enormous, unforeseeable dynamic. This extreme deterioration due to the spread of the Omicron virus in Europe and Germany currently makes it impossible for Messe Frankfurt, as organiser of the leading international trade fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld, and Creativeworld, as well as Ambiente, to keep their dates in Frankfurt at the end of January and in mid-February 2022.

The easing of the pandemic situation that was still hoped for in December is no longer in sight. Instead, the situation is deteriorating worldwide with an enormous, unforeseeable dynamic. This extreme deterioration due to the spread of the Omicron virus in Europe and Germany currently makes it impossible for Messe Frankfurt, as organiser of the leading international trade fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld, and Creativeworld, as well as Ambiente, to keep their dates in Frankfurt at the end of January and in mid-February 2022.

The four events, consisting of Christmasworld with its focus on seasonal and festive decorations, Paperworld and Creativeworld with their product ranges for paper, office supplies, stationery and hobby, craft and artists' requisites and Ambiente with its cross-sector range of products for the table, kitchen and housewares, furnishing and decorative accessories, home furnishing concepts, gifts and fashion accessories, are the recognised leading trade fairs in their sectors and open the trading year in their respective segments. Even in a reduced numerical form, the four trade fairs would still have been the leading events worldwide for their respective product segments.

However, the exponential increase in the number of infections worldwide in a very short period of time and the accompanying multitude of developments and decisions that are clearly outside the organiser's sphere of influence have led to a significant deterioration in the general conditions and necessary prerequisites for holding the four leading trade fairs as major events of international relevance at the end of January and in mid-February 2022 respectively. These developments include the classification of Germany as a high-risk area and the associated travel warnings and international and intercontinental travel restrictions in countries such as India, Japan and the United States, as well as the corresponding quarantine obligations. Equally important are the steadily rising infection figures and the accompanying urgent appeal, among others by the Robert Koch Institute and the expert council of the German Federal Government, to continue to reduce contacts to a minimum and to cancel all major events. At present, there are even further international fears that the critical infrastructure will not be maintained due to the highly contagious Omicron variant. The majority of exhibiting and visiting companies at Christmasworld, Paperworld, and Creativeworld as well as Ambiente are currently reacting to this overall situation with travel and trade fair attendance bans for reasons of duty of care towards their employees to protect them from health risks. The global willingness to travel is dropping enormously at the moment.

There are no plans to postpone the event. Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, explains: "Since the trend-oriented order cycles of the international consumer goods industry require an annual event at the beginning of the year, a shift to the second half of the year would not meet the needs of the exhibiting companies and visitors."

Nordstil to be held in Hamburg from 15 to 17 January 2022
In the interests of the sectors involved, the planning and implementation of Nordstil from 15 to 17 January 2022 is not affected. This trade fair will take place in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg at this time due to other general conditions for local implementation. However, the extremely volatile situation is continuously reviewed and assessed in close exchange with the relevant local authorities and industry partners.

Messe Frankfurt's digital platforms for business success
Messe Frankfurt has already been actively helping retailers to help themselves since 2019 with Nextrade, the first order and data management platform for the home and living sector, and Conzoom Solutions, an information platform for the global consumer goods sector. "A second year without appropriate ordering, inspiration and networking formats poses considerable and in some cases existentially threatening challenges for retailers worldwide," Braun explains. "With our digital offers, we are specifically supporting our partners in industry and trade in this volatile situation. In addition, we will continue to put all our energy and optimism into safe and promising trade fairs. Because there is no substitute for meeting in real life."

Information on the planning of the Frankfurt consumer goods fairs for 2023 will be announced at the beginning of February 2022.
