Swiss S/S 2009 fashion arrives in Paris
Feb '08
From the 19th to the 22nd of February 2008, Swiss textile companies will be showcasing their products at the Expofil yarn trade fair and the international fashion fair Première Vision in Paris.

The bandwidth of yarns and materials on display ranges from 100% ecologically-produced natural fibres and high-tech materials to sophisticated fabrics for luxury fashions in the spring/summer of 2009 – and all in the superlative quality Switzerland is famous for.

As well as the “swiss+cotton” products and yarns made from extra-long staple cotton and textiles with the unmistakably soft feel, the members of the Swiss Textile Federation will also be showcasing high-tech materials.

A wafer-thin material, for example, that changes its appearance depending on the light. Other materials offer additional uses thanks to permanent anti-bacterial properties.

A complete surprise is the fibre made from milk, known as polylactide. In the visual sector, the textile companies will be dazzling visitors with creative designs and sophisticated details, such as pleated embroidery and sequinned materials, as well as fine apparel for the prêt-à-porter collections.

The following member companies of the Swiss Textile Federation will be presenting their products at Première Vision:
Alumo Textil AG:
This fabric manufacturer uses the finest cotton, cotton-silk, cotton-cashmere, cotton-linen and linen mainly for shirts and blouses.

Its shirt material range includes poplin, twill, voile, plissé, batiste/zephyr, Oxford, cashmerello and lanella. All products are kind to the environment and body friendly, and are certified to Öko-Tex standard 100.

Altogether, the collection offers the finest fabrics for the international luxury markets, serving brands such as Hermes, Zegna, Louis Vuitton, Van Laack, Brioni, Stefano Ricci, Kilgour and Dunhill to name but a few.
