Medellin-based textile/clothing trade group Inexmoda announced July 29 that the annual Colombiamoda/Colombiatex trade show here attracted an all-time-record of nearly 50,000 attendees, while latest statistics show that Colombian clothing sales are up 9% so far in first half (1H) 2022 versus 1H 2021.

Among those attending the annual show here were some 25,000 admirers at fashion catwalks, as well as 11,300 buyers from 47 nations mingling with 476 exhibitors at the trade show.

What’s more, another 18,500 people attended the annual “wisdom and trends forum” presentations at “Knowledge Pavilion” events.

“Tourist spending for this 33rd edition of Colombiamoda+Colombiatex 2022 is higher than that seen in past editions, due to the record attendance at the event and which, in addition, meant a hotel occupancy of 91.7%,” the trade group noted.

“Colombiamoda+Colombiatex 2022 showed that it is an opportune moment to boost the fashion system and boost the economic growth that the industry has experienced this year,” added Inexmoda President Carlos Eduardo Botero.

Exhibitors showed-off the latest trends in footwear and leather goods, jeanswear, formal casual, beachwear, intimate wear, children’s wear, textiles and supplies, with participants including those from Uruguay, Mexico, United States, Portugal, along with key textile/clothing producers from the Colombian departments of Antioquia, Cundinamarca, Santander, Norte de Santander and Valle del Cauca.

Through 1H 2022, Colombian clothing sales to date have hit COP$14 trillion (US$3.28 billion), while 1H 2022 Colombian exports of textiles and clothing so far have jumped 26% year-on-year, to US$439 million, according to Inexmoda.

For all 12 months of 2022, Inexmoda now expects spending on clothing here to top COP$29.6 trillion (US$6.9 billion), up 6.8% year-on-year, while Colombia textile/clothing exports are likely to rise 15% year-on-year, to US$931 million.
