The Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry (ASBCI), in partnership with De Montfort University, DMU and Lingerie Buyer magazine, has announced a one-day seminar dedicated to addressing issues impacting the lingerie and swimwear sectors.

Entitled 'Shaping up for lingerie & swimwear – Defining the challenges, exploring the solutions' the seminar is being held on Tuesday 27th April, 2010, from 9.30am to 4.30pm at the Olde Barn Hotel, Marston, Grantham. Ten eminent speakers from the medical, contour fashion, sizing, design, brand, retail and technology sectors will address some of the most pressing issues relating to lingerie and swimwear design.

These will include breast health, sizing and fit, contour design for fuller figures, on-line selling and self-measuring, staff training and the role of new technologies in sizing, grading and pattern cutting. The day will conclude with an open discussion with an expert panel of lingerie and swimwear retailers and brands including Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Lingerie Buyer magazine and Di Murini the mastectomy bra specialist.

Atul Khanna, one of the UK's foremost breast health and reconstructive surgeons, will be speaking at the seminar in addition to contour and sizing specialists from Alvanon, Assyst Bullmer/Human Solutions and De Montfort University.
