The renowned company GUNOLD, GmbH based in Germany, made its successful debut at the fall edition of the ModAmont fashion show in Paris. “We had a lot of informative and enlightening conversations. Predominantly fashion designers but also buyers gathered information about our comprehensive range of embroidery supplies. In addition, we were able to answer a lot of detailed technical questions about embroidery with surprisingly easy to follow solutions”, Stephan Gunold, responsible for Marketing, is happy to mention.
The brand-new sample design books from Gunold are a success
And the brand-new sample design books were as much a success as Gunold had hoped. The trade show visitors showed great interest in those exceptionally creative embroidery ideas. Designers highly appreciated that every page of these creative inspiration books can be emailed as a PDF document upon special request and free of charge.

All things considered, Gunold”s debut in Paris showed great promise and therefore Gunold is definitely planning to participate at the 2013 edition of the ModAmont show.
