WHERE FUNCTION MEETS FASHION

FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR New York—powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS®—is a trade-exclusive event showcasing the latest trends in fabric development for the functional textile industry and provides an opportune marketplace in the United States for the sourcing of high performance functional fabrics and accessories.

The fair is open – free of charge – to verified designers, product, purchasing or material managers looking to source fabrics and accessories for sportswear, workwear, sportive fashion and athleisure apparel.

OFFICIAL COVID-19 INFORMATION

Reed Exhibitions and the entire Functional Fabric Fair team would like to express our concern for everyone directly and indirectly impacted by COVID-19. 

2020 FOCUS TOPIC

Inspired by Nature – From Fibers to Green Treatments

After many years of inaction, everybody is jumping on the bandwagon in terms of sustainability and ecological responsibility. Our best choice is just around the corner: Sustainable fabrics, local production and gentle natural finishings are becoming increasingly important. As a result, people are turning to authentic natural materials, the simplest way to care about our environment: Garments made of natural fibers are predominantly biodegradable, while the brushed inside of a wool-, hemp- or Tencel sweater refrains from releasing hazardous micro-plastic into the sea.
