Designers looking to source new textiles and innovative technologies will have a lot to experience at Sourcing at Magic, to be held during August 12-15, 2018 in Las Vegas. The show will have two new areas - the Fabric Zone and the Denim District – to inspire new collections. The Fabric Zone will have mills and design-related suppliers from around the globe.

Besides having an array of premier mills and design-related suppliers from around the globe, the Fabric Zone will feature a variety of fabric collections and design services of the highest caliber. There will be prints, fibres and accessories, amidst other specialties.

Taiwan’s sustainable textiles at the show will not only emphasize functional features, but also stress ergonomic cuts and fashion trends to ensure comfort, safety, and health. Attendees can explore this trend display to learn more from the Taiwan Textile Federation.

Presented in a unique setting by Fashion Snoops, Square One will showcase an open environment for innovation and experimentation intended to inform, connect and inspire attendees. Community members will be able to interact and share ideas with the innovators, artists and creators and immerse themselves in the influence of the cultural trends shaping the world around them.

Attendees will get front-row access to Pantone's full lineup of colour products for the fashion industry in a refined lounge on the show floor.

Morphew Vintage will present their vintage archives. Attendees can discover pieces to best inspire their next shape concepts, prints and embellishments. New this August – A “master class” will be hosted on the show floor that will showcase a live demonstration recycling vintage pieces including Morphew’s in-house atelier.

Sourcing at Magic will also bring back “the Denim District”, a newly defined show location that features premium denim manufacturers, indigo trend galleries, and curated samplings of the latest wash techniques from laundries around the world. This season, Ningbo China-Younger International Trading and Guangzhou Yixiang Trading are among the leading mills within the Denim District.

Denim Trend Galleries will introduce product proposals from fibre companies, fabric mills, garment manufacturers, and technology developers from around the world. New technology innovations are presented for the production of denim, including unique fibres that companies have developed to increase functionality and implement sustainable washes and garment finishes. The galleries will also showcase the latest advances in machinery and chemical processing. Newly added for August is an installation by Mexican artist Michelle Ganane, who will be painting on denim jackets live on the show floor.

The show will have a special screening of the documentary, 'RiverBlue' to align with the season's focus on sustainability. The documentary touches on the impact the fashion industry has on the health of the depleting river systems. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion denim featuring industry veterans Adriano Goldschmeid, Alex Penades (Jeanologia), Adam Taubenfligel (Tiarchy) and Francois Gribaud (Marithe & Francois Girbaud).
