Spotlight: SwimShow

The annual SwimShow, a global trade event produced by the Swimwear Association of Florida, will soon make waves when it returns to Miami on July 13 to 16 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. And this year, the SAF partnered with Nu Wave Swim for a joint venture: As part of a novel division of SwimShow, Nu Wave Swim will produce a week of upbeat fashion events, activities and runway shows during SwimWeek in Miami. Its partnership with Nu Wave Swim aligns with the event’s 37th anniversary.

Nu Wave Swim said it will take “a fresh new approach to celebrating swimwear in Miami,” as it will transform the Miami Beach Botanical Garden — adjacent to the SwimShow — into “the epicenter of SwimWeek.” And SwimShow, the world’s largest trade event for the swimwear sector, caters to buyers from the swimwear industry and accommodates designer boutiques, resort shops, specialty stores, surf shops, department stores and mass merchants, among many other categories in the sector. Its product selection includes women’s, men’s and children’s swimwear, as well as resort, beachwear, lifestyle and accessory companies, according to the organization.

Its partnership with Nu Wave is indicative of expansion, as SwimShow must cater to a growing audience. The event attracts buyers, manufacturers, designers, corporate personnel, press, bloggers, influencers, fashion consultants, stylists and notable fashion industry members, show organizers said.

Judy Stein, SAF’s executive director, said she is looking forward to bringing “the Nu Wave Swim team on board with their unprecedented talent in fashion production and experiential marketing.” Stein said the “partnership is a significant announcement for SAF, and will be a key pillar of our development and growth.”

 

Spotlight: Trade Commission of Peru

Summer will be a sizzling blend of bright, creative and colorful if one heads to PeruModa, the Peruvian fashion trade show that will be held in New York on July 23 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Offering a hand-picked mix of 22 full-package factories and presenting a unique opportunity for designers and brands to delve into the Peruvian manufacturing sector, the show will include: manufacturing for all categories of cut and sew; “fully fashioned” knitwear and wovens; and Peruvian Pima cotton and alpaca, alongside an assortment of blends, both natural and synthetic, according to show organizers.

Brands and designers new to the Peruvian market can peruse the best of Peru’s heritage embroideries, crocheted and hand-painted goods that offer a peek into what this country with a long-standing textile legacy has to offer. Exhibitors will display highly unusual handwoven goods, many featuring symbolic designs as well as uncommon patterns, weaving techniques and material choices. But perhaps Peru’s greatest strength is its promotion of alpaca, a sustainable, buttery-soft fiber that meets the standards of the greenest brands out there.

At one time, alpaca was considered the “gold of the Andes” and worn by Incan royalty. Today, alpaca is touted as a wholly sustainable fiber, as it is hypoallergenic, water-resistant, temperature-controlled, biodegradable, antimicrobial, breathable and lightweight. Alpaca fiber manufacturing processes in Peru “prioritize environmental responsibility with many factories having zero waste policies and global manufacturing certifications,” and the animals are entirely unharmed from shearing. Alpacas are also considered “the greenest animals of all,” as they do not destroy land from their eating methods or treading, which offers a truly viable alternative for brands seeking creative and sustainable ways to integrate natural materials in their collections.

 

Spotlight: Messe Frankfurt

The spotlight is on sustainability, and the theme of green may become a mainstay for fashion industry events. But as we draw nearer to the summer edition of Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA, which will be held on July 22 to 24 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, one considers how sustainability will be presented this season to an industry that is vehemently seeking ways to differentiate in a very saturated market. Earlier this year, more than 10 percent of suppliers for both events displayed sustainable materials or certifications emphasizing their reduced environmental impact in production and processing, show organizers said. Jennifer Bacon, Texworld USA show director, said that “More and more of our attendees are requesting sustainable textiles and this year we have increased our efforts to place a higher focus on those companies, making it easier for the buyers to locate them.”

Bacon told WWD that according to results from its 2019 winter edition, the most requested segment “remains to be sustainable fabrics such as Tencel, organic cottons, recycled polyesters in all types of fabrics in both knits and wovens. Despite the belief that sustainability is merely a trend, it continues to be a strong factor when designers are sourcing for their upcoming collections.”

She added, “Texworld has increased the awareness by bolstering its commitment to educating buyers on the availability of sustainable fabrics. This could be seen from the numerous educational platforms, exhibitor offerings to the resource areas on the show floor. In addition, over the last few seasons, the exhibitors have increased the focus on future trends.”

 

Spotlight: Spinexpo

Always putting a fresh spin on its yarns, fibers and knitwear categories, Spinexpo anticipates its exhibitions in key cities being Paris, for its sixth session July 2 to 3; New York, for its 11th session July 16 to 18; and Shanghai, for its 34th session Sept. 3 to 5.

As a primary touchpoint for spinners, weavers and knitters of international stake, Spinexpo recently held its three-day event commemorating its 33rd session of Spinexpo in Shanghai, whereby 12,671 visitors gathered at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center. As previously reported in WWD, Spinexpo organizer Karine Van Tassel said Spinexpo operates as a “middle-level segment of the textile industry and our exhibitors still target exports,” and this year, green practices are of top-of-mind conversation when attracting international buyers, such as those who come to Spinexpo for the latest insights. In years past, colorful and fashion-focused pop-ups and trends areas appeared at the 23rd Shanghai showing with both a “Cashmere Boutique” and “Knitwear Pavilion.” At Spinexpo’s SpinActive area, which is dedicated to active and functional developments in circular knitting, both in yarns and machinery, research is tailored to a fresh take on activewear.

Since making its New York debut in 2009, Spinexpo maintains its motive of bringing mills and makers to where industry professionals exist, at the right times. Eco-friendly practices and innovative yarns were two popular insights from a recent show, and the next iterations of Spinexpo will provide the fall-winter 2020 trends, alongside emerging industry dialogue on consumer demand.

 

Spotlight: Lineapelle

Leather lives. Highlighted as a sustainable, innovative and storied material at Lineapelle, the international leather fair will return to New York from July 17 to 18 at Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan to outline the winter 2020-21 trends. It is held in New York twice a year, in January and July. Prior to the event, the World Leather Congress will take place on July 16, at the same venue, drawing international speakers.

Lineapelle encompasses 1,300 exhibitors from 40 countries and over 20,000 visitors from more than 100 nations. According to Fulvia Bacchi, chief executive officer of Lineapelle, “the exhibition plays an international role in highlighting the importance of the sector in Italy,” with even the Italian government bolstering the fair. Bacchi further suggests leather’s “potential for adaptation and its incredible performance capability” being of interest to designers and consumers alike.

At its recent showing, for its summer 2020 trends revealed a “total immersion in the world of the co-natural,” as Bacchi previously told WWD, whereby technology and nature are key themes. It is not uncommon for century-old businesses to exhibit at Lineapelle, showcasing the latest techniques and innovations while doling out heritage, such as the company Manifattura di Domodossola with divisions for luxury furnishing and accessories, which showed in February. It is a fourth-generation business run by sisters Giulia and Silvia Polli.

The next exhibition in New York will forecast upcoming winter trends while continuing the momentum on technology and sustainable innovation, bringing the unique Italian heritage Stateside. The Milan edition will show winter collections later at the Milano-Rho fairgrounds in Italy from Oct. 2 to 4.

 

Spotlight: Cosmoprof Vegas

The salon world, cosmetics and personal-care retail channels and cosmetics supply chain are one at Cosmoprof North America. The B2B beauty industry event returns July 28 through 30 returns to Las Vegas for its 17th edition. New this year, Cosmoprof North America announces the inclusion of its Cosmopack North America “show-within-a-show,” a branch focused on packaging. It will showcase the full-fledged cosmetics supply chain, including every tier, being ingredients and raw materials, contract and private label manufacturing, machinery and packaging solutions for the beauty industry stakeholders and consuming one-third of the show floor. With the addition of Cosmopack North America, Cosmoprof devotes an entire pavilion to packaging suppliers.

Cosmoprof hosts auxiliary editions of its event in Hong Kong, Mumbai and its worldwide, and longest-running edition, in Bologna, Italy. Recently, sustainability was the theme of the 52nd edition of the five-day beauty trade show, which ended on March 18, including Cosmopack which ran March 14 to 17. At the March Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna session, 265,000 attendees and just over 3,000 exhibitors from more than 70 countries were in attendance, as previously reported in WWD. The largest B2B beauty exposition in the U.S., Cosmoprof North America recently partnered with the Fashion Institute of Technology to host a panel discussion on the topic of sustainability in beauty packaging while celebrating their new global partnership in April.

It’s likely Vegas will mimic the curated corners at previous event iterations, such as that in Bologna, which included a Cosmoprime section featuring many “green” corners, a “Green Selection” in the Extraordinary Gallery and in Cosmopack, a “factory” illustrating the “No.Co. — No Compromise” project.
