The 2020 winter edition of Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA will feature a 3-day robust educational programme with expert panels and industry hot topics including popular Lenzing Innovation Seminar Series, Fashioninnovate, Textile Talks and Explore the Floor. The fairs will take place from January 19–21 at Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Innovations in today’s fabrics, technology tools, and trends for Spring/Summer 2021 are among the many sessions to be offered in the comprehensive educational platform at one of the largest fabric sourcing events for the North American market.

Building off a successful Fashionsustain during the summer edition, Fashioninnovate will debut and kick off the winter edition on January 19, featuring a full-day conference line-up bridging the gap between fashion and technology. This dedicated discussion will bring thought leaders together in an open forum to share insights on the latest trends, technology, and tools in the textile and apparel industry.

A brand-new feature to the event will be the Innovation Spotlight. A segment that will represent Texworld USA’s focus on sustainability and technology, this curated area will concentrate on the innovation of processes and advancements of today’s revolutionary fabrics. With this exhibition, Texworld USA will highlight cutting-edge companies such as Jeanologia, Brrr, Hemp Black, and Natural Fiber Welding that will present the newest innovations and offer a wide range of products as an ideal platform for sourcing.

“As the industry rapidly evolves, our platform aims to address these changes through our comprehensive educational programme. Comprised of the established Lenzing Seminar Series sessions, engaging panel discussions, and guided tours led by industry experts, this edition will be enhanced by the introduction of a new conference, Fashioninnovate. We are confident that our educational platform will strengthen the event as a whole, as visitors from start-up designers to seasoned industry veterans will be able to come away new insights,” said Jennifer Bacon, show director for Texworld USA / Apparel Sourcing USA.

There will be an open panel discussion on the technology tools needed to compete in today’s fashion industry. This panel will explain insights into blockchain technology, circular tracing, and the newest software to reduce lead times and waste.

An Explore the Floor Tour to the Innovation Spotlight will have attendees see, feel and learn about the newest innovations in bio-synthetics, smart textiles, and circular design solutions. Visitors will also learn about how established fibres and fabrics are evolving to keep up with circular and sustainable design needs.

There will be a presentation from Roseanne Morrison, fashion director at The Doneger Group, who will share the upcoming trends for Spring/Summer 2021. The New Dimension will cover the dynamics taking hold in a global marketplace: The modernisation of classic and an appreciation of treasured artisanal elements.

The Women in Textiles seminar will feature some of the industry’s most compelling success stories, all told from a woman’s perspective. Featuring both trailblazers and newcomers, all of whom will help inspire and guide the audience to change the industry’s future for the better.

The StartUp Fashion discussion will throw light upon how to create a growth plan for one’s business in the new year by focusing on brand development, business mindset, and thoughtful marketing.

Often, trends come and go in a matter of weeks, but for fashion manufacturing, jumping on the fad of the moment can lead to leftover inventory and profit loss. However, when companies use technology to aggregate trend data over multiple retailers and manufacturers, they can begin to predict trends. Using technology to increase efficiency can reduce production and shipping lead-times to drive products that are on trend in as few as three weeks. During a panel discussion, experts that are integral to the supply chain ecosystem will touch upon how they have been able to produce, ship and receive trend-right product in a short window, while maintaining profitability.

An open panel discussion on the current world trade policies will discuss how they are shaping the textile and apparel industry sourcing choices.

Texworld USA is one of the largest sourcing event on the East Coast for apparel fabric buyers, research and product development specialists, designers, merchandisers and overseas sourcing professionals. This international business platform offers a wide product range covering the entire fabric spectrum.
