Twice a year, representatives of the fashion industry meet at the exhibition centre to draw inspiration from STYL and KABO international fairs, make orders for the next season, and get information on new trends. This August they will meet here for the fiftieth time. On the occasion of this important jubilee, the organizers have prepared a number of surprises for them.
Sales in the fashion industry are growing and the trade fairs STYL and KABO thrive as well. “They are the only contractual trade fairs of their kind in Central Europe. That this year’s February edition has again grown by new exhibitors is gratifying,” said the CEO of the Brno Trade Fairs company, Jiří Kuliš. After five years, the footwear and leatherwear trade fair KABO “grew” out of pavilion F and moved to a more spacious pavilion V. Novelties for the Autumn and Winter 2017/2018 season were, according to a first estimate, viewed by five thousand professional visitors, traders, and buyers, including a delegation of sixty businessmen and buyers in the textile and clothing industry from Iraq and Kurdistan.
Trends in women’s and men’s fashion, footwear, and accessories for autumn and winter 2017/2018 were introduced by the Dutch expert Ellen Haeser. Her lecture took place directly on the catwalk in the pavilion P, and for the second time in history it was connected to a fashion show of collections of exhibitors whose pieces illustrate the new trends.
From Saturday, 18 February, to Monday, 20 February, Brno will become the crossroads of fashion industry. The 49th International Fashion Fairs STYL and KABO assert the advantageous trend when fashion and business go up hand in hand and interest in new collection presentations keeps rising. New collections of 758 clothing, textile, footwear and leatherware brands will be presented by exhibitors from twenty countries. There will be 75 purely Czech producers whose goods are attracting more and more customers, and almost 50 companies will bring their collections to Brno for the very first time. We expect that more than five thousand expert visitors will come check them out, i.e. mainly businessmen and merchandisers. Another piece of big news is that after five years in Hall F, the International Fair of Footwear and Leatherware KABO is moving to the Hall V.
Established in 1990, 'Collection Adam' specializes in producing ties, insets, bow ties and scarves. In the course of 25 years of our operation 'Collection Adam' became a leader on the tie market in Poland. Our attention to aesthetics and quality of our products proved to be the key to our success.
From Saturday, 18 February to Monday, 20 February 2017, Brno becomes the crossroads of the fashion industry. The 49th STYL and KABO trade fairs confirm the positive trend of the fashion trade doing well and interest in the presentation of new collections growing. After 5 years, the footwear and leather goods fair KABO is moving from Hall F to a larger Hall V.
BAŤA a.s. will present collections of Weinbrenner and Power brands at KABO.
The Czech and Slovak markets are growing and so are the trade fairs STYL and KABO as the only international B2B presentation of the fashion industry in this area. The exhibition space has expanded and the number of companies and brands has grown; dozens of newcomers introduced themselves and many previous exhibitors returned to Brno. The 48th fashion trade fairs STYL and KABO presented new collections and trends for the Spring and Summer 2017 and, as was expected, attracted five thousand professional visitors, businesspeople, and buyers.
The company Karpet is one of the Czech companies whose current production was very favourably commented on by the Dutch fashion trend specialist Ellen Haeser during her Saturday’s lecture. “We tried to choose interesting models, including paper or sisal ornate hats. We’re happy that we caught the audience’s interest, that several our photos made an appearance in the lecture, and that our goods are well liked. This is why we do it, so that the customers are satisfied,” says Monika Jeglová, Karpet’s sales manager.
The opening presentation of the fashion trade fairs STYL and KABO belonged, as usual, to collections of exhibitors. This year they mostly presented fashion for girls and women who appreciate both the aesthetic and the practical side of clothes in various everyday situations. As part of the STYL SHOW the companies and brands LADY COLLECTION, NEULA, TRAMONTANA, MODĚVA, ESTEL COLLECTION, PTAK FASHION CITY a JOYMISS presented their collections.
