N.Y. Textile Shows to Debate Issues, Forecast Trends

In their issue from January 8, 2013 WWD Today writes on the Lenzing Pavilion on Texworld USA taking place upcoming Monday til Wednesday at Javits Center, NYC: Kristy Meade, group show director for textile noted that Lenzing’s pavilion and booths organized by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade have both seen an increase in exhibitor participation from the previous January edition. Tricia Carey, USA merchandising manager for textiles at Lenzing, noted that the Lenzing pavilion has 26 exhibitors showcasing knits and wovens in Lenzing Modal and Tencel.

“These exhibitors are from seven different countries and offer a wide range of price points and fabrics,” Carey said. “I expect strong attendance at the show as buyers continue to seek a diversified sourcing portfolio for innovative fabrics.”

Lenzing will be showcasing Lenzing Modal color, which is dope dyed for lasting color with energy and water savings, she noted, adding that there are a variety of design effects that can be produced with Lenzing Modal color, including fabric overdyes for quick response. The fiber is produced with a carbon-neutral process using Lenzing’s Edelweiss technology that helps to reduce energy and water consumption throughout the processing stages. One of the highlights of Texworld has been the seminar series, now organized jointly by Lenzing and Messe Frankfurt, and this edition’s lineup promises to live up to expectations.

Highlights of the diverse seminar series include “Fiber Innovation — Where Sustainability Starts,” examining how fiber innovation can provide the base for more environmentally friendly products at the brand level. Speaking on the topic will be David Roberts, president of Tuscarora Yarns; David Sasso, vice president of sales at Buhler Quality Yarns Corp., and Claudia Mommer, project manager for apparel at Lenzing.

At the “Lingerie & Active — Just the Right Fabrics: Sleep & Sporty” seminar, experts in fiber and fabric formation will discuss how to select the right fibers, appropriate blends and perfect construction for these specialized markets. Leading the talk will be Brad Pedell, president of Bradlee Int’l Ltd.; Ria Stern, global marketing and brand director for Hyosung Holdings USA Inc., and Bart Kennedy, Lenzing’s marketing director for the Americas.

“Politics of Fashion: Impact of the Election on the Textile Industry” promises a topical examination of what to expect from U.S. trade and economic policy in the wake of the contentious election season and fiscal cliff debates. Kevin Burke, president and chief executive officer of the American Apparel & Footwear Association; Andy Jassin, managing member of Jassin Consulting Group, and Jeffrey Silberman, chairman for the Textile Development and Marketing Department at the Fashion Institute of Technology, will talk about issues of domestic commerce and international trade, and where common ground might be found between the political parties.

Among the areas likely to be discussed by this panel, and noted by Meade and Carey, is how real the revived interest in Made in America apparel and textile manufacturing is and what could or should be done to support it. (…) Lenzing’s pavilion features about 20 percent U.S. knitters that use its fibers, a percentage of which is produced in its U.S. mill in Mobile, Ala.
