Visions for the textile industry

One goal of ISPO MUNICH is to be a gateway for future trends. In cooperation with trend experts ISPO MUNICH studied various global trends with influence on the textile industry and its products. In combination with the defined trend colors and five more detailed textile trends, these mega trends provide a good vision where the future of textiles will take us.

ISPO MUNICH is very pleased to have the opportunity to share these visions for Spring/Summer 2018 with the textile industry and to use these trends as a basic guideline for ISPO TEXTRENDS Spring/Summer 2016. The mega trends show visions that are not specific to one particular area but will influence the entire textile chain right down to the consumer.

The color cards and the textile trends result from a range of influences, from consumer behavior to the global economy. Film, music, social media, art and many other activities are reflected in these trends. They form a basic guideline how new developments and innovations of ingredient products will be shown, presented and highlighted at ISPO TEXTRENDS Forum 2016 in Shanghai.

Making the most of what you have is the key to this season’s ISPO TEXTRENDS delivery as we encourage and push the host of high functioning ingredients available in the activewear sector to new levels and encourage a new lease of life. Creativity is key in compiling new offerings, moving away from the basics and injecting a sense of rejuvenation. This doesn’t mean we are void of new and energetic developments, innovations that are set to feature at the higher end of the market. ISPO TEXTRENDS preview of the season should stimulate the senses and deliver fresh and exciting products. Let’s get working!
