Eurovet have announced the launch of a new space for collaborations, where start-ups and innovative players in the sector can interact with the brands under a new experimental voice. The ‘Tomorrow’ area will launch next month at Interfilière Paris aiming to foster the development and experimentation in the lingerie, swimwear and activewear markets.
Central Saint Martins, the London pioneer in textile innovation and education, have already confirmed they will be at the show inviting visitors to discover five promising end-of-curriculum projects from the Master Materials Future programme. Students question and experiment with the potential offered by the materials of tomorrow for an innovative textile industry, addressing not only recycling but also the possible processing of information by textiles, thus illustrating the possible bridges between textiles and electronics, medical and technological.
Parisian start-up Spartan will also be at the trade show with their innovative textiles aimed at protecting us from waves. The first product is high-tech and stylish boxer shorts that protect the wearer’s fertility and health from mobile phone and WiFi waves, by incorporating silver fibres into the cotton fabric to act as an electromagnetic shield. The company will be joined by Euveka, French expert in textile and clothes industry process customisation and specialised in high performing robotics technology associated with body shape and bio-mimicry. They are developing smart, adaptive and connected mannequins with the help of bespoke software, to assist textile professionals in prototyping and selling bespoke clothes without fittings.
Interfilière Paris takes place between 9-10 July at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
