The July 2014 Interfilière Paris trade show will welcome visitors into the world of textiles with a special focus on fibres, it was announced by Eurovet at a press conference in London this week.
With an ever longer list of consumer requirements to satisfy, the fibre selection process is becoming increasingly strategic: softness, elasticity, lightness, strength and flexibility are just a few of the performance criteria taken into account when designing textiles. The show will offer an in-depth insight through a dedicated space and conferences, helping designers choose what works best for their projects.
At the event, it was also previewed the new sportswear range by Designer of the Year, Melissa Odabash (pictured above). Paying special attention to comfort with fine fabrics and creating glamorous, elegant designs, Melissa’s upmarket swimwear collections are distributed in more than 50 countries and coveted by international stars.
