Again this year, Südwesttextil, the association of the Southwest German textile and clothing industry, held its annual conference. Together with students from the Faculty of Textile & Design of Reutlingen University and with experts from the industry, the topic of "Textile Building" was brought to the center of the event.
Starting with an exclusive tour through the new Thyssenkrupp test tower in Rottweil, which is surrounded by a special textile shell, the conference went on with expert presentations on the subject of textile construction and opportunities and challenges in the fashion industry in 2018.
At the closing of the conference, the students of Reutlingen University presented a special fashion show: a collection that demonstrated the entire textile spectrum of the member companies of Südwesttextil. As a member of the association, A&E Gütermann also participated at the fashion show by providing a special catwalk collection that was sewn with A&E Gütermann threads.
