Proving its status as a platform that's both firmly established and forward-thinking, Supreme Body&Beach looks back on its successful latest edition and the future of the industry.
“Never underestimate the power of beautiful lingerie … Never underestimate the power of consistency and desire.”
“Just like the fashion market in general, the segments lingerie and beachwear are facing a transformation,” says The Supreme Group executive Aline Müller-Schade. “Despite the challenges brought on this transformation, many beachwear stakeholders also view it as an opportunity. Never underestimate the power of beautiful lingerie … consistency and connections are key success factors for manufacturers and retailers of products that literally touch the consumers' skin.
Case in point: many suppliers have NOOS systems in place, guaranteeing retailers a high degree of flexibility in meeting consumer demand.“
“The annual Stars of Lingerie Awards (“Sterne der Wäsche Awards”) supported by The Supreme Group also demonstrate the close connections and strong ties within the industry,” says Ms. Müller-Schade. „Strong customer focus and a forward-thinking, yet flexible approach are the keys to success in a challenging marketplace, as the overall highly positive response of exhibitors and visitors confirms. Moreover, creative new ideas like the live fashion shows not only fulfil desires but also stir new longings. Never underestimate the power of consistency and desire – they are the core values we have represented here in Munich for 13 years. And they remain the foundation for the compelling experiences we create in cooperation with all the stakeholders at Supreme Body&Beach.”
Supreme Body&Beach Munich reports highly successful order business for the beach and bodywear industry. On February 21st through 23rd 2020, over 500 collections for FW 2020 were on display on two floors at MTC World of Fashion in Munich.
Bringing together all key exhibitors from the lingerie and beachwear segments, combining renowned brands and aspiring new labels, and drawing an even larger number of exhibitors, with an increase in international participants, Germany's leading order platform in Munich once again confirmed its position as the main European order event of the industry.
The presence of the most relevant buyers, the large volume of visitors hailing from all across Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Northern Italy, and several non-European countries, and the consistently positive feedback also support the event’s strong position.
In addition to its highly attractive location – many industry players love Munich (“always worth a trip”) – Supreme Body&Beach once again scored with its winning combination of reliability, consistency, well-founded insights, and creative experiences.
Many exhibitors said they appreciate the close connections to the organizers and the very positive, familiar and close-knit feeling at the event.
Bodywear Consulting expert Yurdanur Steck shared in-depth knowledge and insights on current developments and topics like consumer behavior and market potential in the digital era.
Daily fashion shows featuring Madison Models Munich met with great enthusiasm. Buyers and visitors unanimously declared them to be "vibrant, refreshing and inspiring”, asking that they be continued with increased frequency in the next season.
The friendly, positive atmosphere was also palpable at the traditional get together at Bachmaier Hofbräu, where trade show participants, buyers and visitors met to network and reinforce their positive outlook – never underestimate the power of beautiful lingerie.
