The most popular event of garment industry
Trenčín – the City of Fashion
Trenčín is known for a long-term tradition of trade fairs and exhibitions related to various industry sectors. The exhibition Trenčín – mesto módy was one of the most popular events of garment industry. Its history dates back to 1963. Under the name Výstava výrobkov trenčianskeho textílneho a odevného priemyslu (Exhibition of textile and garment industry products) it took place for the first time at Merina Trenčín plant club. In 1970 VHJ Slovakotex took charge of the exhibition and later, in 2007, it was Expo Center a.s. Trenčín. However, in 2008, it closed its doors definitively.
Garment industry was introduced in Trenčín by the factory owner Jan Nehera from Prostějov. The first ready-to-wear collection was made in 1939 in a workshop on Palackého Street. A year later he bought the lands “Za mostami” on the right bank of Váh river, where he built the production halls. The factory, which employed almost 200 people, was inaugurated and consecrated on 24th August, 1940. It served as a cornerstone of the garment giant Odeva created in 1948.
We think that this is the era of recurrence of genuine home production, recurrence of crafts, of manual folk creativity. A lot of new garment companies, private manufactories, manufacturers, and designers have been created. They bring high-quality products, garments, accessories, jewellery to the market and we want to introduce them to general public. We want to present the best, the highest quality, and the most original currently produced in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. We aim at diversifying the trade fair with quality production from Hungary, Austria, and Poland.
