ISPO Textrends Forum, a platform for innovative textiles and components for sportswear manufacturing, has seen participation from companies in 2015, rising by 65 per cent from the prior year.

240 selected products will be presented at the ISPO Textrends Forum, during ISPO Munich, ISPO Beijing and ISPO Shanghai with an additional focus on sustainability, safety, and innovation.

ISPO Textrends offers designers, product managers and media representatives, a selection of groundbreaking textile trends and innovations.

The most significant developments in the fabrics, fibres and accessories sector for all sports and outdoor textiles will be presented at ISPO Textrends Forum in hall C2 at ISPO Munich.

According to the organisers, business professionals will have an exclusive opportunity to do research, gain information, network and find out more on sourcing from February 5-8, 2015 at ISPO Munich.

An international jury, consisting of journalists, designers and independent experts met in Munich in October 2014 and evaluated all entries.

The experts selected the top 10 as well as up to 50 additional exceptional materials in a total of eight categories.

These categories include, base layer, second layer, outer layer, membranes & coatings, accessories, trims, fibres & insulations and soft equipment.

In addition, the forum will feature 15 products each from the categories of sustainability, safety and innovation.

Every day, there will also be four expert presentations on the current issues affecting the textile industry at ISPO Munich.

Jury member Louisa Smith said, “Companies participating this year experimented with a lot of colours, new structures and textures, combined with innovative processes.”

“I noticed a trend towards lighter fabric qualities and the combination of new and existing fibres and finishes, yielding interesting results and materials with extremely high performance,” she added.

If one is unable to personally visit the forum as of late January 2015, he/she will be able to access the information in the ISPO Textrends Trend Book as well as the Trend App. (AR)
