SPOTLIGHT As seasonal changes warrant shifting hem lengths and the desire to show more skin, versatile, technical fabrics come into focus.
And Première Vision New York's winter edition, held on Jan. 15 and 16 at Pier 94, will shed light on spring 2020 textile trends with a particular focus on notable advances in textile designs and fabrications.
Noted as a can't-miss global textile event for North American industry professionals, Première Vision New York will present the textile trends, mapping five sectors or “universes” that include fabrics, leather, designs, accessories and manufacturing for the upcoming spring season.
Visitors can peruse its Trend Forum and Color Wall, enabling guests to “visualize the season's key colors in king-size format” while simultaneously identifying suppliers. With more than 300 exhibitors on view, attendees can sample new textile innovations and experience “trend tastings,” or seasonal highlights that reveal “global influences and main silhouettes to key products, with a specific focus on fabrics, accessories and patterns,” the firm said.
In partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Ramon Martin of Tome was named brand ambassador. Marin will present several outfits exclusively for Première Vision that emphasize two themes Première Vision has been cultivating: “Made in USA” and the “Smart Creation” program, focusing on sustainability.
Its winter edition will highlight textile innovations such as Panama Trimmings' 100 percent fair and vegan oil derivative, as well as Rebil Group's Oeko-Tex Standard, including its 100 percent organic-cotton care labels and woven labels, as well as technologies embedded in traceable hangtags.
