Other exhibitors are also returning to Brno, such as EWACO the ladieswear wholesaler.

Visitors to the STYL fair can look forward to traditional exhibitors who meet with their customers in Hall P twice a year. There will be companies like Donet, Doppler CZ, Felina ČR, H&D, Jopess fashion, Hegler Fashion, Pleas, Tonak and more. Large space is again given to Czech manufacturers whose goods are specifically sought by domestic customers. The JITEX COMFORT brand will present traditional knitwear such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, underwear and nightwear, bathrobes, but also functional underwear. The offer corresponds not only to current fashion trends, but also size requirements of the Czech population, thus some models have sizes up to 5XL.

A new form will be given to the popular trade fair seminars which highlight the current fashion trends. The fashion for next autumn and winter will again be presented by Ms. Ellen Haeser, a Dutch specialist with over thirty years of experience both with creating trends, and with the development of textile materials. Due to the increased interest in this lecture, it will be included in the programme twice - on Saturday and Sunday, directly in Hall P on the catwalk. There will of course be the favourite fashion shows of exhibitors’ new collections. Twice daily, STYL Show will take place on the catwalk, dedicated to women's and men's fashion, and once a day the Lingerie Show presenting a collection of underwear and nightwear, including hosiery. The 'icing on the cake' will be featured on Sunday at 5 p.m.: the LUXURY CUT collections of women's and men's fashion by John Richmond - Milano, men's fashion by Corneliani and originals of women's luxury dresses by the world famous designer Oleg Cassini, which were worn in the sixties for example by Jacqueline Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe.
