Interfilière Paris will crown Italian fabric manufacturer Piave Maitex the Designer of the Year 2015 when it opens its doors in January.
The company will be recognised for its excellence in warp knits and Raschel knits, trade show organisers said.
Founded in 1908, Paive Maitex is active is several sectors, including high fashion, prêt à porter and shoes, but 50% of its business comes from lingerie and shapewear clients.
“Piave Maitex owes its success to its capacity to innovate – with around 120 new products each year, in addition to the basic collection,” Interfilière said in a statement.
“It successfully produced discrete and light fabrics with Peau d’Ange and a targeted range of cosmetic-textiles. The latest key innovation, which will be showcased on its stand, is Body One: a bodysuit with a non-slip quality and guaranteed comfort. Piave Maitex also promotes sustainable production techniques via its Green Line.”
