 The main directions of the "INTERFABRIC" trend zone. The SS 2025 season

This textile season is focused on materials that, in an era of unprecedented global change, can provide more sustainability, build a sense of confidence and more accurately reflect our way of life.

The SS2025 summer focuses on projects that can connect us to our own culture, heritage and understanding of society. Craft, history, and traditional ornaments will allow you to create new local products.

Everyday textiles will gravitate towards innovation and non-standard design. This season will focus our attention on bioresolutions.

Technological creative tools such as AI are becoming accessible to everyone and increasingly blurring the line between reality and fantasy. Dreamy colors, smooth lines, sensory textures, exaggerated shapes and elements are waiting for us. Digital concepts will influence the structure of the fabric, combinations of materials, expanding the boundaries of the familiar.

The innovations that await us are pragmatic, convenient and aesthetically pleasing, they form a new optimistic view of textiles.

"In the coming years, we will see how biotechnologies will come to everyday textiles, creative curiosity and out-of–the-box thinking will be necessary business strategies, human and artificial intelligence will be increasingly interconnected," comments Alexandra Kaloshina, founder of Solstudio Textile Group, on the new season. – We are in great demand for regenerated materials, reducing the number of processes in the production of textiles in order to simplify further processing and disposal. We will talk about all this in seasonal lectures in the trend zone."

The importance of universal innovations is growing, making it easier to adapt to the weather and the environment. The field of ecology is considering the direction of new fibers with increased end-use functionality. Soft natural materials, tactilely pleasant artisan textures and bright, sunny shades of fabric that speak of energy and joy occupy a dominant position in the SS 24 season

Textile Trend Forum is a platform of creativity for specialists of the Russian light industry. Creative networking and knowledge sharing among professionals gives rise to creative collaborations, new successes of Russian textile and clothing designers, new commercial collections and unique author's models.

With each season, Textile Trend Forum increases its content and visual presentation. Today it is a creative installation, real design labyrinths from Kirill Lopatinsky, a designer, decorator, specialist in the field of emotional storefronts and effective visual merchandising. "Every time we plan a creative space, we try to build bridges between creativity, creativity and the real business processes that the industry needs," notes Kirrill.

The materials of the trend zone are traditionally divided into segments: "Structures and surfaces", "Textile finishing and decoration", "Pattern & Jacquard" and "Sustainability".

Fabric samples are collected from participating companies, and a special expert commission selects the best of the best every season to be awarded the INTERFABRIC AWARDS. The winners include manufacturers from Russia and other countries of the world, which makes the award truly international.

The trend zone - Textile Trend Forum – is being built taking into account global textile trends and the needs of Russian buyers. Traditionally, she will not only present a selection of the most relevant materials for the production of light industry goods in the near future – here you can get professional recommendations aimed at business development.

As part of the Textile Trend Forum, new names are being heard and creative ideas are being born. During all the days of the exhibition, you will be able to look into the future, where careful attitude to resources, textile biotechnologies, traditions and culture are not just words, but a part of our lives!

Participation for specialists is FREE.

The event is supported by the Russian Union of Textile and Light Industry Entrepreneurs (SOYUZLEGPROM), the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation and the RSPP.
