Athleisure has major potential for growth, earning it its own special presentation during the Interfiliere trade show. Athleisure apparel is versatile, multi-purpose apparel designed for athletic and leisure time activities. Sports bras alone are a 1.5 billion dollar market, with 41% of its consumers buying them for non-sports use. Sports apparel and footwear segments have witnessed a 42% growth over the last seven years, and is predicted to grow another 30% by 2020.

The athleisure customer is health-conscious and urban, in need of comfortable and functional clothing to wear when out and about. The style is valued for exceptional fit and performance as its customers are highly attuned to the technology benefits of her purchase. Invista presented its fiber solutions and Lycra technologies used in fabrics that maximize the performance of athleisure apparel without sacrificing style or comfort. Athleisure is the fashion of the future with great promise for business opportunity.
