From bright neons to earthy tones and durable fabrics to delicate laces, the mills had it all this year. To see the top 2015 lingerie trends that we spotted during the show, read “A Taste of Interfiliѐre NY ~ 2015 Lingerie Trends.”

INY Bellini

As the exhibitors packed up to end a long day of work, Interfiliѐre served their refreshing blood orange Bellini for the cocktail and networking reception. After an hour, the crowd was back in good spirits and the final seminar began.
“Shattering Retail Rituals
” by Marshall Cohen specifically addressed retail trends and the changes in our industry. He paid special attention to urging synchrony between shipping and consumer shopping trends. Consumers purchase what they need when they need it 10/12 months of the year. However, the shipping of merchandise is only in sync with consumer shopping 3/12 of the months in a year.

A Taste of Interfiliѐre NY ~ 2015 Lingerie Trends

I thought you might be interested in a taste of what you missed if you did not attend the Interfiliѐre New York fabric show hosted by Eurovet and Invista  on Sept 23. To be brief, besides the exhibitors, there were several interesting presentations. Invista showcased their new Lycra branding initiative, Proexport Colombia discussed the potential of the Columbian textile and apparel industry and Marshal Cohen of NPD did his retail statistical thing. But for me, the highlight was Eurovet’s Fashion Trend Exposé for Intimate Apparel.  Four major stories propel the design process for Fall 2015: Wuthering Heights, Beatrix Potter, Bloomsbury and David Hockney. Here’s a teaser:
