What’s new for Denim?

The fashion design process starts by looking at the latest trends for yarn, fabrics, raw materials, technical details and accessories based upon what is being shown at the international fairs.
Close-Up Fashion Textile

There is a new magazine by the publishers of Close-up titles called Fashion Textile that  is a quick reference for designers and buyers, presenting a huge collection of all the fabrics and materials from the European fairs: Denim by Première Vision, Pitti Filati, Milano Unica, Mod'Amont, Le Cuir à Paris and Indigo.

Most of us wear Denim and it is therefore of interest to know what is trending. This is a great place to find out what is new and different this season for Denim clothing as featured at the Denim by Premiere Vision Fair. For Autumn/Winter 2013-14, we see “an opulent, charming  and glamorous season” with lots of Glitter, sparkle, metallic, jewel-like accessories and lots of decoration. In addition, are seeing dark coated shiny finishes on dark indigo, grey and black denim.


While we see a glam side to denim, we also see country inspired styles that work with plaid shirts and suspenders. Practical, warm and cozy denim mixed with cashmere, cotton, wool and real or faux fur are trending. There are more streamlined silhouettes that show clean lines and/ or may have a distressed finish. There are either super stiff heavyweight denims or extra supple weight fabrics with nothing in between.

Plus we see fabric treatments whereby color melts into color for a diluted effect.
Fashion Textile is an exclusive working tool offering the most up to date information featuring the new collections of all the important international textile companies for Men, Women and Children focused on yarns, fabrics, embellishments and more.
