Interfilière Paris will return on July 6-8, 2013, with the trade show debuting a Beachwear Designer of the Year award.
The show, which specialises in textiles for intimate apparel and beachwear, is a key date for industry professionals to discover new trends and find out about new textile developments and innovations.
For the first time, the trade show will nominate a Beachwear Designer of the Year within the framework of Paris, Capitale de la Création, for achievements in the beachwear fabrics sector. The French company European Stretch Fabrics, a subsidiary of the Payen Group, has been selected for the award.
ESF provides innovative textile products with a wide range of stretch wovens, a technique that Interfilière Paris wishes to highlight through this nomination. The innovative textile company has dressed a number of Olympic athletes at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, as well as the Atlanta Games in 1996, Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008 along with creating the world’s finest fabric in 1999.
The trade show will also feature a dedicated area to showcase fabrics and finished products in the intimates, beachwear, sport, health and technical textile sectors in order to answer the question: “Which fabric for which benefit?” by putting the exhibitors’ innovative use of textiles in the spotlight. A conference is scheduled at 11.30am on Monday July 8 with an accompanying handout to further explain this addition to the trade show.
