MUNICH FABRIC START COLOUR TRENDS A/W 2018-2019


As I wrote in the previous post I exhibited at Munich Fabric Start for the first time last September. For A/W 2018-2019 the German textile tradefair presented their new colours & trends.

MUNICH FABRIC START | EXHIBITION



Last month I exhibited at Munich Fabric Start for the first time. The tradefair showed the latest textiles, accessories, denim, street- and sportswear for A/W 2018-2019. Together with Ilfa Siebenhaar I showcased our project Living Colour at the Keyhouse section; presenting future-oriented and business-related concepts with a highly innovative approach.

STEPPING OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE



While most of you were probably enjoying a relaxing vacation in July or August, I spent my summer stepping out of my comfort zone. Big time!

, a leading fibre, yarns, knitted fabrics and knitwear show, shared their S/S 2018 trends for new yarns and fashion fabrics. This new macro trend direction "Expect the unexpected" is divided into five main themes: Saturation, Imperfection, Distortion, Pigmentation and Explosion.

PATTERN MAKING IN RHINO 3D



Today I'm showing you the possibilities of making and easily changing sewing patterns in Rhino 3D. I learned this technique in the course Textile Academy in October.

PRINT & PATTERN INSPIRATION: TERRAZZO




Here's the latest Print & Pattern trend moodboard for S/S 2018 I created for online fashion platform Fashion Vignette.

This trend shows terrazzo granite prints in modern colours. Terrazzo as we know it was created in Italy in the 1920's. It was very popular in the 80's and 90's when Memphis design was prominent.

LIVING COLOUR: DYEING TEXTILES WITH DANCING BACTERIA



As I wrote earlier, I took part in the class Textile Academy at Waag Society in Amsterdam for 16 weeks. Each week I learned new tools, software and skills to investigate how the textile and fashion industry can benefit from new technologies, processes, and business models. The workshops gave me the instruments and knowledge to develop my own in-depth research project in the TextileLab. Living Colour is the result.

REVISIONING TEXTILE EXHIBITION



Imagine making clothes that fill our hearts instead of our landfills;
Imagine fashion free from exploitation and pollution;
Imagine knowing how garments are made;
Imagine making it happen together.

The fashion textiles industry is a fast-paced one. It is able to adapt to trends within a matter of weeks or days. Yet, this industry has a hard time adapting to the latest standards in sustainability, labour and (digital) innovation. The exhibition “reVISIONing textile” presents the quest for a new design landscape. It is sculpted and imagined by designers, artists and developers who feel the need to revise and re-envision the future textile world.
