TEXTILE EXPERT FORUM
in the framework of the IX International Exhibition of Fabrics and Textile Materials INTERFABRIC-2021.Spring
The 9th season of the International Exhibition of Fabrics and Textile Materials Interfabric -2021.Spring, presents the Textile Expert Forum to participants and visitors.
The event is organized by the Russian Union of Entrepreneurs of Textile and Apparel Industry and Solstudio Textile Design, a textile design studio.
TREND-FORUM (Textile Expert Forum) - a professional interactive business space will work for participants and visitors throughout the entire period of the Interfabric exhibition. As in past seasons, the forum is divided into two blocks: Trend Zone and Interactive Business Zone.
At the Forum site, experts will be able to exchange opinions on issues of industry development, listen to famous experts and analysts, as well as receive comprehensive information on current trends in the design of textiles for the spring-summer 21 season.
TREND ZONE - the conceptual center of the Forum. Last season, the design of the Trend Zone was developed and designed by Solstudio Textile Group in collaboration with the designer, decorator, specialist in the field of emotional showcase and effective visual merchandising, Kirill Lopatinsky.
The trend zone was dedicated to the idea of a recycling economy and respect for nature. The design of interwoven ribbons with the current color and designs in the center cyclically replacing each other symbolizes constant movement, changeability and renewal.
Recycling today from an uptrend is becoming a global mission related to rethinking of the processes of production and consumption. Today, when developing a product, its entire life cycle is thought out: from creation to disposal. The appearance of ‘closed fashion’ (circular fashion) is also connected with this, when both consumers and manufacturers share responsibility for an environmentally friendly business model.
The exposition presents textile materials provided by exhibiting companies. These are the best samples of fabrics and materials from new collections in the categories: structures and surfaces, decoration, fabric pattern and sustainable development. Each sample includes company's name and stand number to help visitors find the manufacturer they like.
‘In the spring-summer 21 season, we turned in the direction of universal values. I do not want to remind, but it was influenced by all the sad circumstances that keep the whole world in suspense. There is a softening of the buyers' view of the objects, hot topics are no longer relevant. A noticeable reversal to the classic scenes. Monkeys, giraffes, classic delicate flowers – are such understandable and very pleasant drawings that can show the positive part of our life. The wonderful trend ‘household still life’ also fits into the same direction’.
Alexandra Kaloshina, founder of Solstudio Textile Design.
General directions of the season: design thinking aimed at convenience, durability and biocompatibility.
In the trend zone, it was be possible to get professional advice from Solstudio Textile Group specialists who talked about current trends and answered questions regarding textile design and digital printing on fabric, visual merchandising and other issues.
