THE DESIGNS FACTORY : ART & TEXTILE DESIGN AT THE HEART OF PREMIÈRE VISION DESIGNS – HALL 5
Textile design is an indispensable part of fashion creation and an important element of differentiation for fashion brands in search of renewed creativity. In September, to highlight the many facets of textile design and illustrate the close links between art and textile creation, Première Vision Designs welcomes a new space, conceived as a creative studio: the DESIGNS FACTORY.
In the heart of Hall 5, visitors will be immersed in an artist’s studio that looks like an industrial showroom where the exhibition’s textile designers, like artists, will present their latest textile creations for autumn winter 2019-20. A lively space to find inspiration and new discoveries, the DESIGNS FACTORY is also a great spot for meetings and co-working, initiating creative collaborations between fashion brands and designers, and partnerships between experts in the sector.
The designers will present their exclusive designs on the walls, on textiles and even on skins thanks to an unprecedented printing process developed by the AGFA Group. Partner of the DESIGNS FACTORY, AGFA will present its know-how at Première Vision Designs in a dedicated space near the forum. The Belgian company will also exhibit its work at the entrance of the Première Vision Leather show (Hall 3) and at the stand of Italian tanner Nuti Ivo (Stand 3G89-3H90), which supplies the leathers on which are applied this exclusive printing technique.
Committed to its support of textile design, Première Vision Designs will welcome the 24 finalists from the British textile design competition TexSelect® / Textile Design
Futures (ex Texprint®). Also at the DESIGNS FACTORY, the TexSelect® awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 20 September at 4:30 pm.
