Via tough metal-grey Industry area for ‘high trend-sensitive’ denim- and sportswear-related brands like Björn Borg, O’Neill, Tumble ’n Dry and Japan Rags visitors encountered the cool Blueprint area that was designed like a ‘building site’ surrounded by scaffolding. In this innovative denim area market leaders like Levi’s and Diesel met with smaller innovators like Retour Denim de Luxe or real street culture icons such as Etnies. Many visitors had to ‘acclimatize just a moment’ but as Diesel’s Vanessa Reijnders remarked: “Now is just the right time to innovate. For the children’s market this innovative style might seem a little strange, but we already know Blueprint from Modefabriek and are very positive.” Levi’s also reacts enthusiastically: “it is fresh, new and it brings vivacity.”

In a minimalistic light grey setting the best children’s lifestyle brands presented the most beautiful bed linen, children’s room art, schoolbags and design toys. Rosie Flo’s colouring books from the UK exhibited for the first time at kleine fabriek. Owner Steve Kamlish is pleasantly surprised. He noticed children’s fashion stores come here to look for unique goodies to spice up their clothing collections and his first impression of kleine fabriek was “relaxed, well organised, happy atmosphere and a lot of press.”
