Highlighting new developments through fabrics from its mill customers around the world, INVISTA has prepared a global fabric and garment collection around five distinct themes: Dress for Success, Stretch Your Imagination, Black is Back, Color My World, and Great Performances.

The first theme of the collection, Dress for Success, features the season's latest silhouette -- the trouser jean.

Featured fabrics include styles from Canatiba of Brazil, Arvind of India, Central Fabrics of Hong Kong and Full Blossom of Taiwan.

This category features high stretch fabrics with LYCRA fibre from Tavex Group of Spain and Canatiba of Brazil in slim styles designed to accentuate a woman's curves.
TheBlack is Back theme showcases the continuing importance of black and gray denim. Candiani uses LYCRA T400 Black fibre to create fade resistant black denim. ADM of Pakistan features the LYCRA T400 Black fibre in both the warp and weft to create black and gray XFIT LYCRA fabrics with 360 degree comfort and fit. Japanese mill Kurabo rounds out the collection with lightweight black denims containing LYCRAfibre.

A number of the fabrics in this category have been finished using techniques such as laser printing and tie dyeing from Jeanologia, resulting in unique aesthetics.
