Paris-based Interfiliere, a Eurovet production, will host for the first time in New York an industry event on Monday, September 30th at the Tribeca Skyline Studios: the focus will be on the Fall-Winter 2014 trends with a glance at the Swimwear Spring-Summer 2015 directions before an expert fabric audience, highlighting selected seasonal fabrics along with LYCRA fiber and fabric innovations.
The by-invitation-only event offers designers, fabric buyers and sourcing managers a unique opportunity not only to absorb the new season's stories but also to meet with 21 mills from all over the world that will showcase their latest developments in sync with the upcoming trends.
"The Interfiliere Brand and Community have a global outreach. Created 30 years ago in Paris, it is a forum dedicated exclusively to intimate apparel and swimwear fabrics (it just celebrated its anniversary this past July) with an outpost in Asia that produces Interfiliere Shanghai taking place this year on Oct 22-23, 2013.
This event on Monday September 30th will offer our North American Fabric experts and friends a Comprehensive Taste of Interfiliere on their own turf. This event prepared in collaboration with INVISTA was a logical step for us: INVISTA's fibers and technologies provide our expert mills major innovations sought by the consumer" explains Marie-Laure Bellon-Homps, Eurovet CEO .
