Africa Sourcing & Fashion Week to focus on sustainability

The central theme of the upcoming Africa Sourcing & Fashion Week, which will take place in Addis Ababa from October 3-6, 2017 is sustainability in clothing. A conference running parallel to the trade fair will discuss the themes that are currently dominating the textile industry. Experts will shine a spotlight on various issues, including that of sustainability, with a particular focus on production, the environment and certifications. A fashion show, trend area and matchmaking platform are just some of the programme highlights to be found in the Millennium Hall in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, organisers report.

The origins of fashion and sustainable production is becoming particularly relevant to more and more fashion buyers. The Africa Sourcing & Fashion Week is anticipating an increasing interest in eco-fashion and will present new approaches in this respect. H&M, WRAP, GIZ (Society for International Cooperation) Ethiopia and Solidaridad will present sustainable solutions as part of the conference. International manufacturers of textile machines will also be showcasing new technologies for the African market. This includes the Italian textile machine association ACIMIT, which will be represented with a range of product innovations.

As a new cooperation partner of the event, Messe Frankfurt is expecting international textile suppliers and buyers to attend the third edition of the biggest textile trade fair in Africa. Within the context of the partnership, the three new trade fair brands Texworld Addis Ababa, Apparel Sourcing Addis Ababa and Texprocess Addis Ababa will be launched at Africa Sourcing & Fashion Week. The event trio will present over 250 international exhibitors from 25 countries.
