Written by Ellen Lewis of Lingerie Briefs.

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:

Ellen Lewis wrote up her final thoughts about the Salon De Lingerie show in Paris last week on her blog, Lingerie Briefs! See what’s trending in Fall 2014 on her post:
Paris Wrap ~ Salon De Lingerie Fall 2014

“It was nice to see some of our North American resources doing brisk business: PJ Salvage, Hanky Panky, Cosabella, Affinitas, Eberjey , Rago, Va Bien and the Kenan Group to name a few.  Their booths were extremely busy proving that perseverance in the International market works if given time

There was a rich color story, blues leaning to cobalt, deep purples and pinks blooming in every shade from pale to garnet.” – Ellen Lewis
