(Filed Under Licensing News). The upcoming Interfiliére tradeshow, scheduled for September 5th through the 7th at Porte de Versailles, will welcome 300 exhibitors; almost double the amount of its January edition.
According to a statement, 62 percent of visitors are manufacturers, with 78 percent working in the lingerie sector and 12 percent in beachwear. 34 percent work in the mass market and multiple retail domain; 37 percent are importers and wholesalers; 24 percent are specialist retail chains; 20 percent are department stores; 10 percent are mail-order; and 9 percent are hyper/supermarkets or buying offices.
The 300 expected exhibitors represent 26 different countries, including France, China, Austria, Italy, Germany and the U.S. Notable exhibitors this year are Lenzing Fibers, Nilit, Dogi International Fabrics, Eurojersey and Piave Maitex.
The show, which is geared toward the intimates and beachwear markets, is divided into six sectors: Lace it (laces), Brod’Cust (embroidery), Neoskin (knits, wovens, prints and embellishments), Access’Folies (finishing touches, such as beads, braids, buttons, ribbons, hooks-and-eyes, bra cups, etc.), Hi’Tech (yarns, fibers, machines and latest technologies) and Textile Designers.
With the purpose of discovering and setting future fashion trends, at the most recent biannual color meeting held by Eurovet, several directions stood out and met unanimous approval. As a result of the meeting, it was concluded that there is a growing interest in blush tones, a fascination with nature, and therefore the color green, among other trends.
25 new colors will debut for the autumn/winter 2010-11 season at the September edition: Greige; Powder; Rosewood; Blush; Turtle Dove; Peony; Lipstick; Celadon; Aquamarine; Clementine; Bubble Gum; Mushroom; Copper; Vervain; Coral; Tumeric; Ink; Ultramarine; Loden; Olive; Mocha; Elephant; Blueberry Mouse; Garnet; and Ruby.
The next edition of Interfiliére will be held in January 2010 and will highlight summer 2011 collections.see more
