Munich Fabric Start, September 2018

In early September our founder Amirun Khanom took the time to visit Munich Fabric Start. I asked her a couple of quick questions about her visit to share here with you.

You have been to textile fairs in London, Paris and Milan. Tell us a little about how Munich stood out from the others? 

The Munich fair is very big. They do have a large selection of fabrics from all over the world. I enjoyed being surrounded by so much potential. A particular favourite of mine were the print studios. I love seeing the imagination of the designers and it always makes me very excited. I spent a lot of time in the print studios, there is so much I wanted to use for AmirunKhanom.

Within the fashion sector designers work on multiple collections at the same time. Which collections had you in mind during your Munich trip? 

I went to Munich to see the trends for AW19, SS20 and AW20. 

If there was one trend from Munich that you could see yourself using in your designs for AmirunKhanom what would it be?  

The prints, definitely the prints. The challenge is selecting a few from the hundreds I love! You can see some of the prints and fabrics from Fabric Start below. I also got a chance to briefly see some amazing historic buildings in the city.
