The January 2014 edition of Interfili¨¨re Paris will focus on embroidery as a principle theme, celebrating centuries of know-how in this creative area, and looking at how today¡¯s manufacturers will take the craft forward into Spring/Summer 2015.

The show, to be held at Porte de Versailles from January 24-27, in conjunction with Salon International de la Lingerie et du Swimwear, will feature an ‘Exception’ area, where only the finest embroidery creations from Interfilière exhibitors will be showcased.


Interfilière has also invited textile designer Daniel Henri to create couture looks from exhibitors' embroideries.


Show director Laurence Nerée told Lingerie Insight: “Our ongoing goal is to offer manufacturers and buyers representing the worldwide textile industry new areas for development: proposing perspectives, looking at embroidery from an unconventional and innovative point of view, providing an educational message for visitors, creating a visual and tangible link at the show and ostering inspiration and creativity.”


Embroidery has been passed down through the centuries and continues to inspire designers,” Nerée added. “Nowadays, threads, sequins, beads and precious gemstones add the all-important finishing touches to the most striking catwalk creations.”


Originally carried out by hand, embroidery is often equated with the arts and has firmly made its mark in Haute Couture, ready-to-wear, intimates and beachwear.


"In fact, fashion designers made widespread use of embroidery at recent Fashion Weeks. There can be no doubt about its current popularity,” continued Nerée.


Also at the trade show, Jos Berry of Concepts Paris will hold a trends forum with a botanical garden theme. Here, four trends – Precious, Souvenir, Artefact and Explorer – will be presented.


These trends will acknowledge technological and engineering developments in the bodyfashion world, which make lingerie and swimwear wearable and multifunctional, from stretch fabrics to lightweight cups.


"Technology has at last caught up with the demand for ‘technology with charm’ which is a major reference to everything that happens in shapewear. Cup technology is no longer completely focused on plunge but looks more and more at lightness and comfort. Spacer is also making a big impact in beachwear. Throughout the bodyfashion sector, lightness is a must,” said Nerée.


"Comfort and health are major considerations in the research into new wires, wireless support and cosmetic textiles. There is much to be happy about!” he added.


Interfilière Paris will also host a personal shopper service to help visitors find what they want, and a boutique, which will present several articles from the show.


Organizers expect 150 exhibitors from 30 countries to attend the January trade show, 20 of will make their Interfilière debut.


Pre-registration is now open and visitors can order their passes from the trade show website.
