X53 Winter 2024


Our support programme for newcomers &
labels exhibiting at INNATEX for the first time!

The mix of fresh design breezes and a hot passion for a better fashion world – from a variety of applications, we have selected exciting newcomers who will exhibit their collections in the specially designed DESIGN DISCOVERIES area with community lounge in the upper floor.

Here we present them one by one:

C/OVER: sporty knit chic

This Munich label is a real discovery because we think it is extraordinarily creative in terms of production and design. Seamless and without textile waste, crazy flexible and therefore size-inclusive, modern, sporty and elegant at the same time – that’s how we would describe the zero-waste black dress from C/OVER. Christine Overbeck pays particular attention to knitwear, which in the case of this dress is anything but classic. For the model made from biodegradable polyamide (98 per cent), C/OVER from Munich uses methods such as circular knitting and 3D knitting for a special structure. You could perform circus acrobatics in this stretchy textile. The graduated textile and fashion designer has her clothes produced in a small factory in Portugal and the Netherlands. In general, we think she radiates a special joy in fashion and playfulness. Such a good vibe!


Anfisa Roumelidi: Fusion Fashion

Borderlessness does not necessarily mean homelessness; cultural and historical identity and integration can very well go hand in hand – as Anfisa Roumelidi proves. The graduate of the AMD University of Applied Sciences for Fashion and Design combines hand-woven fabrics from historical costumes with modern offcuts. The design language of the ancestors meets outdoor fashion, traditional costume meets anorak. The result is a manifesto for diversity in the form of multifunctional streetwear under the name Anfisa Roumelidi. For us, this work is a study of the globalised, inclusive world of tomorrow. It demonstrates that the togetherness of different traditions, cultures and eras can be an enrichment for individuals and society – a topic that is more essential now than ever and that is close to our hearts.


Consci: Vegan when traveling

Florina Thaler faced many challenges when developing the bags and accessories. For example, there was the search for the right material. The leather alternative had to be vegan and as free from harmful chemicals as possible, robust and durable, with a high-quality feel and look. The founder opted for cactus leather from Desserto in Mexico. She designs in Frankfurt am Main and produces in Portugal. The processes in the background are meant to also be more sustainable, for example with refurbished products or through the careful selection of partners. Consci combines timeless, elegant design with visibly first-class workmanship and functionality. We were particularly taken with the Travel Line – not only because of the impressive weekender, but also because traveling and sustainability need to be considered together.
