“I love IFLNY! I’ll return in 2018 to see the Italian mills and production capabilities!” – Pink Sport
2018 exhibitors will offer a wide range of performance products to service the apparel industry at best, from ecosustainable, organic and recycled materials (Brugnoli, Liberty Fabrics, Debs, Wanjiali…), to swimwear-approved sun cream-, oil- , chlorine- and UV-resistant products (Iluna, Jin Yi, Hongda…) and must-have properties for intimates such as beautiful loungewear fabrics (Interfeel’Awards nominees Iluna and Celeb), seamless (Asset), extra-fine embroideries or laces (Oriental Embroidery, Melek Dentel,…) , accessories (Huyan Elastics) and 360 sourcing and production capabilities (Rosset).
This session, the Creativ’ Lab will be a forum for gathering and exchanging creative ideas and trends. Although the major changes in lingerie are global, it is in New York where the effects of this watershed are felt strongest and where the adaptations are most dynamic. The two subjects at the focus will be a comprehensive preview of Summer 2020 and Body Positivity. Summer 2020 trend objectives will include:
- Green House: Exotic blooms, leaves and botanicals, …
- Tribal Tech: Inspired by the Black Panther movie, …
- Artificial: A feminist sporty attitude
- Survivalist: Sustainable materials, inspired from raw Nature
- En Famille: Simple, easy and timeless
- Art to Wear: Free expressions of color and pattern
Each of them represent an element of the new dynamic diversification in the intimates market and will be represented by fabric offerings of IFLNY18 mills.
Highlight of this year event will be the exclusive presentation by Jos Berry CEO and founder of Concepts Paris and her guest Angie Lau, CEO of the Clover Group – Voted by Forbes Asia as one of Asia’s Power Business Women 2014 – about major changes, from new shape and color, to the social responsibilities to reduce waste.
