ISPO Textrends offers designers, product managers and media representatives a selection of groundbreaking textile trends and innovations, with an additional focus on sustainability, safety, and innovation next year.

The most significant developments in the fabrics, fibres and accessories sector for all sports and outdoor textiles will be presented at ISPO Textrends Forum. Business professionals will have an exclusive opportunity to do research, gain information, network and find out more on sourcing from 5-8 February 2015 at ISPO Munich.

Selected brands

An international jury, consisting of journalists, designers and independent experts met in Munich at the end of October 2014 and evaluated all entries.

The experts selected the TOP 10 as well as up to 50 additional, exceptional materials (Selection) in a total of eight categories (Base Layer, Second Layer, Outer Layer, Membranes & Coatings, Accessories, Trims, Fibres & Insulations, and Soft Equipment). In addition, the forum will feature 15 products each from the categories Sustainability, Safety, and Innovation.

Louisa Smith, trend expert and jury member, complimented the participants: “The companies participating in this year’s ISPO Textrends experimented with a lot of colours, new structures and textures, combined with innovative processes. I noticed a trend towards lighter fabric qualities and the combination of new and existing fibres and finishes, yielding interesting results and materials with extremely high performance.”

Access and information

The forum will be hosted in hall C2 at ISPO Munich 2015. Every day, there will also be four expert presentations on the current issues affecting the textile industry.

For those who are unable to personally visit the forum as of late January 2015, there will be an opportunity provided to access the most important information in the ISPO Textrends Trend Book as well as the Trend App, available at the iTunes App Store.
