Trade show: Texprocess

Fashionsustain goes Frankfurt

From one German city to another: On 14 May 2019, international conference format Fashionsustain will be dedicated to the topics of sustainability and textile innovation with an offshoot at Texprocess in Frankfurt am Main.

April 2019

On 14 May 2019, Fashionsustain is presenting itself for the first time with an offshoot at Texprocess, the leading international fair for the clothing and textile-processing industry from 14-17 May 2019 in Frankfurt am Main. From sustainable business models down to alternative fibre manufacturing and recycling methods: at the conference, the overarching question “Is sustainability the key to textile innovations?” will be discussed in various round table sessions. Industry leaders such as Lenzing, Perpetual Global and Procalçado S.A. will be coming together for an interdisciplinary discussion about future-proof solutions for the industry.

Fashionsustain is an international conference format that made its debut in January 2018 during Neonyt in Berlin. At the interface of high-tech and textiles, Texprocess is the ideal breeding ground for new, revolutionary ideas. The topic of sustainability is one of the central topics of the upcoming Texprocess and Techtextil, which is taking place at the same time and is the leading international fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. With the integration of the Fashionsustain format, even more attention is being given to this subject. “In the textile industry, new technologies and interdisciplinary collaborations are important drivers towards a more environmentally conscious creation of value,” says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. How a sustainability transformation in the fashion and textile industry can already become a reality today will be shown by the innovation roadshow “The Future of Eco-Conscious Footwear Manufacturing”, which is taking place parallel to the conference. Supported by the Texpertise Network of Messe Frankfurt, fibre manufacturer Lenzing, shoemaker Santoni and shoe component producer Procalçado S.A. will be presenting the sustainable production process of a shoe.
