Terrains of the Future
Under the theme of "Terrains of the Future," the focus is on the synergy between industry and the environment, as they dance in perfect harmony. In a world where resources are dwindling, textile products that have deep roots in nature, crafted from biosynthetic alternatives, and inspired by celestial wonders will take center stage. This visionary approach, drawing inspiration from diverse planets, signifies a shift towards regenerative products becoming viable alternatives across all industries. Within the textile sector, these endeavors are evaluated within the realm of sustainability, paving the way for a future where the fusion of innovation and eco-consciousness flourishes.
The third theme, "Interactions" draws inspiration from societal and political movements, where the energy of political crises and activism intertwines with the influences of craftsmanship. This convergence signifies that the exploration of cyclical processes will manifest in textiles, offering a glimpse into the discovery of new dimensions. In this era, as brands strive to activate a sense of empathy, individuality and strong connections hold significant importance. The development of products draws nourishment from the past, myths, and spiritual themes, weaving a tapestry of narratives. It is expressed that the weight of recycling and repair-based products, such as patchwork, will amplify, symbolizing a renewed focus on sustainability and mindful consumption.
