ISPO Textrends jury meeting

ISPO Textrends Jury

Jury Fall/Winter

INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT EXPERTS - CORE OF ISPO TEXTRENDS

The jury – consisting of three groups of international experts (journalists, designers and independent professionals) – will evaluate, discuss and select the best products from a large number of applications based on specific criteria. The jury’s expertise is the basis for the selection process.

End of October 2018, the jury met at Messe München in Munich. Their goal was to find the “TOP 10” materials in each category, plus up to 50 additional materials that received the status “SELECTION“. Based on this status, the winners will receive a number of attractive benefits that will help their promotion.

International, independent, competent and devoted to innovations in the textile industry, ISPO Textrends jury is an incredible important part of the concept.

"For me, again and again, it is about structure, and I am so happy to see when the producers, regardless of the trend, have the audacity to work on new structures and new finishings combining the structures and  especially  now that we are talking of this whole  mixing up of luxury product going into streetwear, streetwear jumping into luxury product. There are certain structural aspects on the surface that are related historically and traditionally to a certain genre and caliber of fashion and to see them and re-recognize then on the tables as swatches that are dedicated to the sports/streetwear industry is to me striking.

"It is great to see all the new products, it is great to see things moving forward, it is really interesting in the sustainability category where we are seeing there is no difference.
You are touching recycled polyester and it doesn’t feel like recycled polyester, and that I am kind of excited about. I think this is maybe where this is the tipping point, where you are not sacrificing aesthetics, style when you are going more sustainable and I think that is really good news. "

"My first impression, I would say walking in the room, is just how many entries there were of people wanting to throw their hat in the ring so to speak, and I find that encouraging, the fact that hopefully it is driving towards innovation, looking at better performance, better environmental qualities and moving the industry forward."

"I think it is important that we see this key trend in sustainability. I would say you can see it is a bigger trend for sure and you can always ask for more, but  I see a significant difference.  You are seeing a wider spread which is really important,  that is a promising aspect. Of course, we are in a market situation where things are very challenging in many ways and I think this is relevant to the importance of sustainability."

"What was most striking was the big effort on sustainability and performance present in so many of the fabrics and products at the latest ISPO trends. Brilliant! However, companies should not lose track of the importance of design. If we are genuinely to confront the terrible impact of consumption, then we not only have to tackle sustainability and recycling issues but also combine them with winning colors and design. In the end, it’s aesthetics that connect us to what we are wearing."

"Fantastic to see the developments in sustainable solutions, not just recycled products but cleaner conventional processes to emerge in the sports and outdoors sectors without neglecting the desired functionality. Innovation might not always be visible, but it is definitely there for the season."

"I can see more things to see when it comes to sustainability, we are right now going from where we are putting more jobs to marketing departments as they have to explain what their fabrics suppliers have been doing, it is not visual, you cannot see the innovative part."
