Trade Show: Fashionsustain x Texworld Paris

A new generation

Always stay one step ahead of the competition, and help fashion the future – future-orientated thinking is the name of the game at the Fashionsustain conference. The Neonyt conference for sustainability and innovation makes its debut at Texworld Paris and in the framework of Leatherworld Paris on 17 September 2018 and introduces a new generation of founders who are revolutionising the industry.

What will the future bring? The Neonyt Fashionsustain conference for sustainability and innovation provides answers to this question at Texworld Paris and Leatherworld Paris on 17 September 2018, from 2 to 5 p.m. Titled “Collaboration is Key for Innovation” the event launches at the Paris trade shows with a spin-off on the topics of sustainable shoe and leather innovations. Three founders give insights into their creative business models and the forward-looking development of their products. Here, material innovations and modern technologies are just as relevant as a team-orientated corporate culture – because without collaboration, there’s no innovation.

François-Ghislain Morillion, founder of the eco shoe brand Veja and the Parisian concept stores Centre Commercial, knows his métier when he speaks about sustainable marketing strategies under the heading “Let the product and your company do the talk”. Patrick Mainguené subsequently gives insights into the challenges of his profession. As founder of the environmentally friendly shoe brand Ector and the company Insoft, which helps businesses develop new products, he knows the industry inside-out. His specialist area is the recyclability of products based on the use of new technologies. For Olivier Grammont too, the focus is on the environment. With Recyc Leather, he creates alternatives to leather and makes new materials from leather offcuts and waste. These talks will be followed by the panel “What's the future for footwear – the roles of leather and recycling“. Moderated by Thimo Schwenzfeier, Show Director Neonyt at Messe Frankfurt, the three speakers give insights into the shoe industry of the future.

The lecture programme will take place on 17 September 2018 from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Agora Apparel area. Takin place at the same time as Texworld Paris under the title “The Fairyland for Fashion”, Messe Frankfurt organises the trade shows Apparel Sourcing, Avantex, Leatherworld, Shawls & Scarves and Texworld Denim Paris on the trade show grounds in Le Bourget.
