The clash between online and analogue, between Industry 4.0 and skilled craftsmanship, between the virtual and the existent. And between Man + Machine, the concept theme of the BLUEZONE.

Fashion trends Autumn/Winter 2018/2019 at MUNICH FABRIC START - an Interplay of Creativity, Technology and Digitalisation

The MUNICH FABRIC START from 5 to 7 September 2017 that has just drawn to a close was a very special one, according to the organizers. And it was very special for me too, as I was there for the first time after being at other fairs in Italy, France and Germany. I saw numerous innovations, developments and optimisations used to visualise ideas giving the sector a platform for creativity and technical developments. In Munich the future is real and technology the key to a broad-based textiles and fashion industry brimming with dynamism that is both tangible and perceivable.
