Indigo show meticulously selects top studios & designers
Jan '13
The spring/summer season is always decisive in terms of textile patterns and design. More than ever, buyers are looking for unique, creative and original designs to give that special something to their collections.

Recognizing the importance of the next session (12-14 February 2013), and to meet the expectations of a fashion market always avid for news, Indigo, the leading trade show for textile patterns and designs, has rigorously selected the top studios and independent designers.

These exhibitors have a twofold interest in taking part in the show: it allows them to meet with their key clients and prospects, the fashion brands, and also provides them access to a choice group of potential clients - the weavers exhibiting at the world’s premier fabric show, Première Vision.

With 176 exhibitors now registered (as against 157 in February 2012), the Indigo offer is seeing remarkable growth.

These studios and textile designers will present their new Spring Summer 14 collections: new products in terms of prints and embroideries, jacquards, their proposals for mixtures of textile technologies, and their suggestions for shapes, engineered motifs, etc.

Some 86% of exhibitors are European, mainly divided between the United Kingdom (the most represented country with 42% of participants), France (20%), Italy (14%) and the US (8%).

Also noteworthy is the presence of 14 textile-design schools and universities showing their students’ work to industry professionals. Nine of these are from Great Britain, three are from Turkey, one is from Austria and another is from Denmark.

Some 18 exhibitors are showing for the first time at Indigo: 15 studios coming from Europe (UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain), the US, Russia, and South Korea, in addition to 3 Turkish schools. The Indigo offer includes 15 knit studios strengthening the offer presented at Knitwear Solutions, the platform dedicated to creative flatbed knits.

The northern end of Hall 5 will enable specialist buyers to develop their knit collections. And teams from designer and fashion brands can work in synergy, taking full advantage of the complementarily of the spaces and shows within the Première Vision Pluriel ensemble.

In terms of inspirations, this season is marked by imagination, freedom, spontaneity, and colorful and vibrant energy. This Indigo edition gives free rein to the imagination, to emotion and to visual reinterpretation.

Beyond the Influences inspirational document, the fashion team will illustrate the season’s major directions in the Indigo fashion area, at the entry to the show. In the centre of the display, ready to take flight, a giant flying fish emerges from the sea. Its scales are made up of patterns and all-overs which have been furnished by exhibitors, all original proposals, each an invitation to creativity.

Between the earth and the sky, a cloud of flying fish fly freely over the forum. Their agility is reminiscent of that shown by designers, in their efforts to rise up and stand out from the rest.
