Bold graphics, bohemian looks and romantic fare fare were the leading ideas at the semiannual intimate apparel workshop at Invista Inc. in Manhattan. Previewed at Invista’s offices at 1430 Broadway, the seminar featured a video presentation of key looks from lingerie runway shows at the Mode City fair in Paris, as well as prototype styles and items designed by fashion students from Hong Kong, Milan, Leicester, England, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
The workshop, which runs through Dec. 8, features a venue that provides directional trends on fabric, fiber and color direction for retailers, manufacturers, designers, merchandisers and mills.
