We uncover the key themes from the fabric trade show.

Jan 27, 2012


We’re finally back in New York after a whirlwind week in Paris covering the lingerie trade shows and shopping the new spring collections in stores. While the S/S 13 edition of Interfilière experienced a drop in exhibitors and visitors, an optimistic mood hung through the air, buoyed by “bursts of color,” whimsical trend displays, and directional fabric and trim collections.

While we work on our in-depth analysis of the show, here is a sneak peek into the key themes from the Trend Forum, straight from the editor’s notebook.
