News Fashion Forward: Bizwear Visits Texworld.
19 February 2015
Bizwear is on the ground in Paris! The lovely Belinda from our office in France has had the tough job of attending Texworld, the largest international exhibition to focus on the ever-evolving textile industry. Claiming to be a “truly sensory trip”, suppliers, designers, and buyers from couture companies and high street retailers come together to see where Spring Summer 2016 fashion will lead us.
More than 700 international suppliers from 27 countries head to Texworld to present the latest looks, from thread and trims, to recent innovations in garment packaging.
Belinda spent the first day familiarising herself with the latest colour trends. This is a huge focus for us, as we are always working to remain one step ahead of the pack when it comes to bringing you contemporary, relevant uniform solutions. You can find out more about the latest colour palettes here.
With our constant focus on sustainable sourcing and ethical manufacturing developments, Texworld is a great chance for us to see what’s next in the world of ECO fabrics. Texworld has supported the ECO market since its days of infancy in 2007. Today, almost 80 eco-friendly and ethical fabric suppliers are found at Texworld, all showcasing the latest green and ethical textiles. While this is evidence of the growing support of ethical fabric sourcing, Belinda has noticed some suppliers still have a way to go, “It seems companies are either all over eco fabrics, or they look at you and say ‘eco… what is that?!’”
Back at Bizwear HQ, we are eagerly awaiting Belinda’s return; we can’t wait to see the newest fabric trends and to hear more sustainable fashion trends. We are looking forward to sharing these with you, so keep an eye out here for the latest fashion news.
