Trendstop’s material forecasts track leading designers’ use of materials to inspire and inform collections. We attend leading fabric fairs such as Premiere Vision to source directional images and supplier samples to inspire fabric applications and manipulations. Our material groups outline upcoming trends for a range of fabrics including wovens, knitwear, denim, lace and embellishments. On our blog we can exclusively reveal a key wovens direction which will influence fabric application for both womenswear and menswear.
