Avantex ParisThe gathering of high tech fashion. Launched in France in 2015 by Messe Frankfurt France, Avantex is more than just a simple professional trade fair, it is truly a gathering…

  • That answers the needs of the entire gamut of “Fashion Tech” players and puts innovation at the service of fashion for clothing, accessories, machines and services.
  • That proposes innovation at the heart of reflection: a prospective vision of fashion and how it will be consumed tomorrow
  • That federates: exchanges and meetings are at the heart of its philosophy

Connected, technological fashion is the future of fashion: a new relationship with clothing and accessories for a new way to wear them.

The mutations brought about by technology have created a true revolution and new challenges for fashion designers: technology must enhance fashion while, at the same time, serving the consumer. This shake-up has meant new uses and ways to imagine garments in terms of their conception and how they are sold. Thus high-tech fashion has become more democratic and interests a growing number of people as its offer expands with each passing day, extending far beyond the sport world and the textile offer itself.
