Messe Frankfurt buys Ethical Fashion Show

FRANCE – German event organiser and venue Messe Frankfurt has acquired the Paris Ethical Fashion Show in a move aimed at increasing the company’s presence in the garment-manufacturing sector.

Member of the board of management for Messe Frankfurt, Detlef Braun, says: “We intend to consolidate the show’s profile and develop its presence at international level.”

Of almost 100 fairs run by the organiser, a third of them involve textiles and the textile industry.

The next edition of the show will run from 25 to 28 September of this year at the Paris Fashion and Design Centre in the Seine Docks.
