Sustainability main theme at Texworld

Sustainability will be the main theme at Texworld, the trade fair for fashion fabrics and clothing with nearly 900 exhibitors, running from 15 to 18 September 2014 in Paris.

Besides focusing on creativity, Texworld will also host fashion shows highlighting designers and trends for winter 2015, besides highlighting Thailand’s expertise in traditional textiles and handcrafted items.

Texworld will host an exhibition of collections by the winners of the latest Dinard International Festival of Young Fashion Designers. It will also feature two shows by couturier Eymeric François and third-year students majoring in knits at the ESMOD fashion design and business school.

These events will complement the ‘Impulse’ lectures, highlighting show trends for winter 2015, on September 15 and 17, by two artistic directors Louis Gérin and Grégory Lamaud.

The two Pantone lectures planned on September 15 will cover trends inspiring the textile industry. Whilst the first titled ‘Psychology of colours’ will be more of a social and psychological study, the second, ‘Colour trends winter 2015-16’ will address direction and development of palettes, which will have an impact on what the textile industry has to offer.

At this event, Thailand will promote the richness of its textile heritage, exhibiting more than 100 silk and cotton fabrics produced by 20 rural communities and these fabrics are entirely hand-woven.

Texworld said it is continuing to make visitors and exhibitors aware of the importance of sustainable development to the textile industry. For the first time, ‘Sustainability Days’, an event will cover two days, September 16 and 17, as there are more lectures on sustainability than in previous years.

On September 16, Sustainability Days will kick-off with a discussion on “Africa en Vogue, opportunities and challenges of textile & apparel sourcing markets in East Africa GOTS” conference, chaired by Ariane Biemond from Solidaridad.

After which, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) will introduce a series of lectures with the subjects ‘Can sustainable development be certified’ and ‘Ecological, social and economic criteria according to GOTS’, illustrated by specific examples of textile companies.

They will be followed by a workshop with WellMade, titled, ‘WellMade, trends in sustainable development’.

WRAP will explain its standpoint on the same topic providing an update that will shed light on standards, their development and new practices.

This will be followed by another lecture, ‘The challenges of sustainable development for the textile and clothing industries - the current situation, constraints and pre-conceptions’, by Hélène Sarfati-Leduc, an independent sustainable development consultant. Her presentation will answer questions raised about new rules and requirements identified in the earlier lectures.
