The BF+DA at Texworld USA
Mon, Jan 22 @ 9:00 am - Wed, Jan 24 @ 5:00 pm
Come join us for Texworld USA, the East Coast’s largest sourcing event for apparel fabric buyers, research and product development specialists, designers, merchandisers and overseas sourcing professionals.
Make plans now to come see the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator’s booth (F22) on January 22 – 24, 2018, and be part of the event’s three days of sourcing, seminars and networking at the Javits Convention Center, located at 655 West 34th Street.
On Tuesday, meet Pratt Institute Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator’s executive director Deb Johnson as she shows off the TEK-TILES® project a two year investigation in advanced apparel manufacturing. Its purpose is to create a taxonomy of manufacturing methods that will speed the cycle of innovation and the development of garments that support health and well being, improve worker safety and performance and examine culture through fashion. The BF+DA has begun to explore these potentials for human application and established new production processes to accommodate the constraints of each material. In collaboration with the BF+DA’s s.LAB, the TEK-TILES® project will continue to explore the opportunities for social impact as well as the sustainability in the supply chain and design of smart garments and wearable technology.
Held bi-annually, Texworld USA provides the opportunity to meet directly with a wide range of manufacturers from Asia, the Middle East, North America and from many other regions from around the globe. See in-demand, affordable apparel fabrics, trims and accessories for every product line – women, men, juniors and children/infant wear. This is a must attend event for professionals in every facet of the industry – ready to be inspired by fabrics, influenced by the latest trends and introduced to a host of reliable, cutting-edge apparel textile companies.
