Survey of the European fabric fairs for spring/summer 2016
published in Issue 175, July 2015
The latest update in this series of reports summarises the trends which were on show at the European fabric fairs for the spring/summer 2016 season. The author of the report visited Munich Fabric Start, Première Vision Fabrics and Milano Unica where she interviewed exhibitors and found out first-hand which trends were proving to be the most popular. Even though the industry is facing many challenges, the mood at the fairs was positive, with a general feeling among fabric manufacturers that they were in the process of emerging from a crisis. Fabrics on show for the season were characterised by their lightness and brightness. Decorative features were much in evidence and included embroidery, lace and fringes made from cut wefts or the insertion of fancy yarns. Patterns were largely inspired by the fashions of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and floral designs were ubiquitous. Jacquards were offered in silks and silky types while many fabrics for outerwear were textured. Linen is a strong fibre for the season, and is being used in its pure form or in blends with cotton, wool or viscose. Denims remain a strong influence, including silk denims made for the luxury market.
