'Bodywear Collective': New hotspot showcasing trends from the bodywear sector at Performance Days

During the upcoming winter trade fair PERFORMANCE DAYS, which is going to take place on October 23rd and 24th, 2024 in Munich, the organizers will dedicate a special area to the topic of body and shapewear. Under the title 'Bodywear Collective', a hotspot focusing on swimwear, dancewear, shapewear, sports underwear and lingerie, is being created in close cooperation with the London Contour Experts Group. Curated by Jos Berry and Concepts Paris under the direction of industry expert and designer Nichole De Carle.

PERFORMANCE DAYS has long offered a wide range of products and solutions. This was confirmed once again by visitors and exhibitors at the summer trade fair, as the extensive range of information platforms continues to impress. Areas such as the Trend Forum, the newly integrated Footwear Area, including its own Footwear Forum, the Innovation Zone, the packed Expert Talks program, the Sustainability Lounge, the Media Lounge, the Reality Zone with an exciting workshop area, and the newly integrated Technology Hub are now firmly established components of the trade fair. In October 2024, the 'Bodywear Collective' will round off the diverse facets of the bodywear industry and provide an insight into current and future fabric trends in the categories of swim- and dancewear, shapewear, sports underwear and lingerie on its own platform.

Innovations in the bodywear industry: 'Bodywear Collective' opens up a new sector Following the integration of its own Footwear Area in October 2023, PERFORMANCE DAYS showcases trends and highlights from the bodywear sector with the 'Bodywear Collective' thereby expanding its offering to include another important segment. Behind the idea and implementation is the London Contour Experts Group, with a team of top consultants and industry experts. In addition to the conception and development of new collections, the portfolio includes Bodywear Lab, its own design center, and Hysculpt, a marketing and PR agency.

Manufacturers from the various categories will present their highlights and innovations in fabrics and fibers at the 'Bodywear Collective'.
