Interfilière: Liebaert named Designer of The Year

Dec '10
Within the framework of Paris Capitale de la Création, Interfilière has named Liebaert Designer of the Year. A loyal exhibitor at the show, the Belgian company Liebaert will be celebrating its 125th birthday in 2012. One of the sector's most dynamic players, it is being rewarded for its innovation capacities and the development of products designed for the shapewear market and/or eco-sustainable fabrics.

Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles

Company turnover for 2010 (€34 million euros) has increased by 25% and annual investments border on €3 million. Founded in 1887, the company is now run by the fourth generation of the same family, Alain and Pierre Liebaert, with 250 employees split between two Belgian production units: - one plant weaves and dyes elastic tape (125 machines, including 35 jacquards for a capacity of 40 million metres). - a second plant knits, dyes and digitally prints stretch fabrics (35 circular machines and 75 Raschel and warp-knitting machines for a capacity of 7 million metres).

Five types of machine have been developed specially at Liebaert's request, including a 50-gauge knitting machine - the world's finest - which is used to produce the famous “nanostitch” fabrics. This latest innovation was also made possible thanks to the exclusive use of an ultrafine microfibre yarn.

PHOTO COMPETITION Open to all Interfilière exhibitors, the competition offers them an opportunity to express the essence of their company, through unusual, funny or intriguing images: featuring their team, working environment, products or events, etc. Exhibited on the external wall of the VIP/PRESS Lounge, the photos will be judged by visitors and the press. The winner will receive a communication pack for the July 2011 session.

For almost 50 years, EUROVET, the world's leading organizer of lingerie and beachwear trade fairs, has had the mission of serving the international industry. The first fairs were in Paris, the world's fashion capital, next came Shanghai in 2005, Hong Kong in 2007, and in New York and Las Vegas in 2008 through a partnership with CurveExpo.
