Through breakthroughs in original hardware and software technology as well as research in new materials, what was impossible to knit in the past can now not only be knit; it can be made to perform even better.

On display will be the company’s SVR123SP computerized flat knitting machine featuring a dedicated loop presser bed that permits full use of inlay technique for the production of hybrid fabrics that feature both knit and weave characteristics, suited to the production of safety-oriented functional fabrics. SVR123SP furthermore features i-Plating inverse-plating capability for increased patterning capability, including the production of jacquard-like patterns in light-weight plain jersey stitch. A variety of knit samples produced on SVR123SP will be presented at A+A featuring anti-bacterial, fireproof and cut-resistant fabrics, including a light-weight cut-resistant apron as an alternative proposal to current heavy vinyl aprons used in the meat packing industry. Safety glove samples knitted on SHIMA SEIKI’s glove knitting  Machine will be presented as well.

Also demonstrated will be SHIMA SEIKI’s SDS-onE APEX4 3D design system. APEX4’s capability for virtual sampling is especially effective in streamlining the production process. Ultra-realistic simulation capability allows the use of virtual samples for evaluating design variations without producing actual samples for each variation. Smart, speedy and sustainable production is possible by minimizing the time, cost and resources normally required with sample-making.

Elleti and Itema at Première Vision in Milan

Elleti Group, an Italian manufacturer specialized in denim treatments and garment making, will present an innovative approach: how we experience denim and its transformation processes.

Elleti Group, an Italian manufacturer specialized in denim treatments and garment making, will present an innovative approach: how we experience denim and its transformation processes.

Elleti Group will display its “Green Replicants” project in a new and improved “Lighter. Better. Wiser.” edition.  This project, inaugurated a few years ago, recreates some of the iconic pieces from the Elleti Group Museum of Denim (dating back to the 19th century) with today’s most advanced environmentally sustainable technologies. This special edition replicas are fully developed using the latest addition to the sustainable tools of the company: the “Wiser Wash” technology, a patented washing method that eliminates the use of all potentially harmful chemicals and pumice stone, while drastically reducing the water consumption throughout the process.
 
Moreover, at the Immaterial M.O.D.E. booth, a special project designed by Denim Première Vision and realized in collaboration with Elleti Group and Sense – Immaterial Reality will take visitors through an Augmented Reality installation to explore a selection of legendary pieces from M.O.D.E., Museum of Denim by Elleti Group. By downloading the app, available on every digital store, on your phone or tablet and looking out for the signage on site, unique denim masterpieces will be at everyone’s fingertips.

Itema, a worldwide manufacturer of weaving solutions, will be for the first time at the Denim Première Vision fair. The company is renowned in the industry to be one of the only manufacturers to produce all the top three weft insertion technologies – rapier, air-jet and projectile.

The company will highlight the iSAVER® technology: designed by Itemalab®, the Itema advanced innovation company. Thanks to iSAVER®, one thousand kilos of cotton per loom a year will be saved – i.e. 3% of total raw materials – which will prevent wasting 20 million litres of water, while saving costs for about €2.000 a year on each loom. iSAVER® significantly contributes in making the denim production greener.

Monforts customers at Première Vision Digital Denim Week

Denim manufacturers employing Monforts technologies showcased their latest activities, including sustainable fabric manufacturing, new advances in fibres, dyes and chemicals, as well as process and supply improvements and recycling options, at Première Vision’s Digital Denim Week, held from July 5-9.

The users of Monforts equipment included AGI Denim (Pakistan), Azgard 9 (Pakistan), Berto (Italy), Bossa (Turkey), DNM (Turkey), Kilim (Turkey) and Orta (Turkey).

The new Naveena Denim Mills (Pakistan) Holistic collection, for example, employs a suite of sustainable materials such as organic cotton and post-consumer and post-industrial waste cotton that has been shredded and recycled at its in-house unit in Pakistan.

Supply chain transparency is also becoming increasingly important, and Turkey’s Bossa is now sharing information on its dyes, energy sources and recycled content use with its customers. For organic cotton in particular, Bossa provides QR codes with which brands can identify the names of individual farms and their locations, as well as details such as the origins of specific seeds and the use of irrigation by growers.

Exhibitors include well-known pioneers and young newcomers
The IVN (International Association of Natural Textile Industry), which sponsors INNATEX, is staging its own pop-up showroom. In doing so, the association is creating its own curated space, showcasing the diversity and special features of its members. The future objective is to expand this space with the organiser to create a growing Concept Area that introduces visitors to different ways of presenting green fashion.

Die Besonderheit: Die Inhalte des FFW STUDIO bleiben weiterhin on demand verfügbar.

Besucher*innen an fünf Tagen aus 60 Ländern – die digitale Ausgabe der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week war ein voller Erfolg. Vom 5. bis 9. Juli 2021 bot das FFW STUDIO kontemporären wie zukunftsweisenden Fashion-Content in seiner konzentriertesten Essenz: Drei Konferenzen, über 60 Panels, mehr als 72 Stunden Diskussionen, Talks und Präsentationen mit mehr als 150 Speakern und digitale Beiträge von rund 20 game changing Brands haben gezeigt, dass die Mode- und Kreativwelt bereit ist, die notwendigen Schritte zu unternehmen, um die aktuell stattfindende Transformation der Branche erfolgreich zu meistern. Die Besonderheit: Die Inhalte des FFW STUDIO bleiben weiterhin on demand verfügbar.

Alleine die multidisziplinären und internationalen Konferenzformate „The New European Bauhaus – Werkstatt der Zukunft“, organisiert vom Fashion Council Germany in Kooperation mit der Frankfurt Fashion Week, der „Frankfurt Fashion SDG Summit presented by Conscious Fashion Campaign“ in Kooperation mit dem United Nations Office for Partnerships und die von der Messe Frankfurt umgesetzte Neonyt-Konferenz „Fashionsustain“ lieferten in über 40 Stunden Live-Stream Deep-Dives, Debattenbeiträge und Einblicke in die beiden Leitthemen der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week: Sustainability und Digitisation in Verbindung mit neusten Trends, Designs und Styles.

Phygital, on point, zeitgemäß
Die Frankfurt Fashion Week versteht sich als Meeting Point progressiven Innovationsdenkens und gegenwärtiger Ästhetik: Nach ihrer Coronabedingt erzwungenen Digitalpremiere wird sie vom 17. bis 21. Januar 2022 die gesamte Branche erstmals phygital – also gleichzeitig onsite und online – in Frankfurt zusammenbringen. Das digitale FFW STUDIO wird dafür dauerhaft integriert in das in Frankfurt geplante, ganzheitliche Fashion Week-Ecosystem bestehend aus kontemporären Messekonzepten, multidisziplinären Konferenzen, innovativen Runwayformaten, der Aktivierung des öffentlichen Raums und einem verbindenden Plattformgedanken.

Dafür will die Frankfurt Fashion Week alle Stakeholder der Mode- und Textilbranche zusammenbringen: von Topmanager*innen und Entscheidungsträger*innen über Einkäufer*innen bis hin zu Produktmanager*innen und Designer*innen. Deshalb soll die gesamte Wertschöpfungskette in Frankfurt vereint werden – neben der für eine Fashion Week maßgeblichen Präsentation von Mode in Runwayshows und Kollektionen, sollen daher zukünftig auch innovative Vorstufenunternehmen und Ingredient Brands von den Rohstoffen über die Fertigung bis hin zu Services in das FFW Ecosystem integriert werden.

Die beiden zentralen Zukunftsthemen der Branche: Sustainability & Digitisation und vielversprechender Ausblick auf Januar 2022
Soziale Lieferketten, Traceability, faire Produktionsbedingungen, Virtual Fashion, Blockchain, glokale Kollaborationen, phygitaler Retail und State-of-the-Art-Materialinnovationen – das vielfältige Programm hat die Diversität und Spannbreite der die Fashionwelt aktuell beschäftigenden Themen und Herausforderungen sichtbar gemacht.

Was bei der digitalen Ausgabe nur bedingt möglich war, wird in Zukunft zu einem festen Bestandteil der Frankfurt Fashion Week: Ab Januar 2022 wird die FFW zusätzlich in die City verlängert: Frankfurter Gastronomie, Hotellerie, Clubszene, Museen, Festivals und der Einzelhandel.

Die Initiierenden der Frankfurt Fashion Week, die Messe Frankfurt und die Premium Group, setzen ab Januar nicht nur ihre bestehenden Messen, Premium, Seek und Neonyt sowie die bestehenden Konferenzen in Frankfurt um, sondern lancieren zusätzliche Messeformate für die Fashion Community.

Neonyt-Konferenz Fashionsustain beleuchtete den Status Quo der Textil- und Modebranche

Von A wie „Avatar“ bis Z wie „Zero Impact“ – während der Neonyt-Konferenz Fashionsustain wurden vom 6. bis 8. Juli 2021 der Status Quo der Textil- und Modebranche beleuchtet, Innovationstreiber identifiziert und Handlungsspielräume für den Retail-Sektor definiert. Die multidisziplinäre Konferenz streamte mehr als 20 Stunden Impuls-Insights, Panel Discussions und Fashion Deep-Dives live aus dem FFW Studio. Mit dabei waren unter anderem der Grüne Knopf, Oeko-Tex, PwC und die Transformers Foundation.

Die digitale Transformation beschleunigt sich in der gesamten Textil- und Modebranche in einem noch nie dagewesenen Tempo. Dies erfordert, dass alle Akteur*innen ihre Denkweise auf Agilität umstellen, um in disruptiven Umgebungen skalieren zu können. Es muss ganzheitlich gedacht werden – in Bezug auf Produktionsstandards, aber auch wenn es um die Inklusion unterschiedlichster Zielgruppen geht. Mode ist Selbstdarstellung, Identität, es geht um politische Statements und sie spiegelt gesellschaftliche Themen wider.

Mode ist Selbstdarstellung, Identität, es geht um politische Statements und sie spiegelt gesellschaftliche Themen wider.

State of the Industry
Das Framework für die Fashionsustain wurde am ersten Konferenztag gelegt: Als einen Ausgangspunkt für die Diskussion über die Auswirkungen der Covid-19-Pandemie auf die Textil- und Modeproduktion sieht Mariska Schennink, Manager Sustainability von Euretco Fashion, die vorherrschende Schieflage in der Industrie. Um diese deutlich zu machen, ist es für Andreas Bothe, Head of CSR & Sustainability der Bay City Textilhandels GmbH, unausweichlich für Transparenz entlang der Lieferkette zu sorgen.*

Innovating the Industry
Digitalisierung hängt unmittelbar mit Datenmengen zusammen – Big Data, die dabei helfen kann, Konsument*innen oder Brands zu verstehen und die Customer Journey zu optimieren.

Eine Technologielandschaft, die Sam Fields, Director of Creative Technology bei RYOT International, zu Beginn der Covid-19-Pandemie nicht gesehen hat: „Die Modeindustrie befand sich in einer Krise und sie war nicht wirklich vorbereitet auf ein vollständig immersives, digitales Zeitalter. Digital Fashion künftig so einzubinden, dass dabei Technologien wie XR und Blockchain zunutze gemacht werden, wird die Branche revolutionieren und für eine grünere, nachhaltigere Zukunft sowie steigende, hochprofitable neue Einnahmenquellen sorgen.“*

State of Retail
Die Einzelhandelsbranche hat einen enormen Wandel durchlaufen, insbesondere während der Covid-19-Pandemie – die digitalen Angebote verändern die Branche und sie muss sich schnell an neue Kund*innenbedürfnisse anpassen. Die Frage ist nicht mehr physisch oder digital: Phygital ist die Lösung.*

Special Cotton and Denim
Transparente und differenzierte Informationen sind auch ein zentrales Thema beim Thema Baumwolle, dem wichtigsten Rohstoff der Denim-Industrie. “Rund 30 Millionen Menschen weltweit bestreiten ihr gesamtes Jahreseinkommen in der Baumwollindustrie”, so Dr. Kreshav Kranthi, Lead Scientist des International Cotton Advisory Committee. Um deren Anbau ranken sich viele Mythen: „Was den Anbau angeht, hat Baumwolle einen schlechten Ruf”, sagt Wil Jackman, Agronomy Assistant auf der Baumwollfarm Sundown (Australien). Gemeinsam mit dem Baumwollfachmann Simon Ferrigno untersucht die Transformers Foundation in einer Studie deshalb aktuell Aussagen wie z.B. “20.000 Liter Wasser werden für ein T-Shirt oder eine Jeans benötigt”.

SHIMA SEIKI to Exhibit at Pitti Filati 89

SHIMA SEIKI ITALIA S.p.A., Italian subsidiary of a leading Japanese computerized knitting solutions provider SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., will exhibit at the 89th edition of the Pitti Immagine Filati exhibition in Florence, Italy from the 28th till the 30th of June. Because this edition of Pitti Filati will be a fusion of physical venue and online exhibit via Pitti Connect, increased importance is sure to be placed upon digitalization in the presentation of yarn.

In order to further support efforts in DX in the fashion industry, SHIMA SEIKI is presenting new online services at Pitti Filati. APEXFiz™ is SHIMA SEIKI’s first subscription-based design software and yarnbank™ a digital yarn sourcing web service for the knitting industry.

Because this edition of Pitti Filati will be a fusion of physical venue and online exhibit via Pitti Connect, increased importance is sure to be placed upon digitalization in the presentation of yarn.

In order to further support efforts in DX in the fashion industry, SHIMA SEIKI is presenting new online services at Pitti Filati. APEXFiz™ is SHIMA SEIKI’s first subscription-based design software and yarnbank™ a digital yarn sourcing web service for the knitting industry.

APEXFiz™ is the latest addition to SHIMA SEIKI’s proven SDS®-onE APEX series design system lineup, but with a big departure from the past. Whereas previous APEX-series design systems were offered as an all-in-one hardware/software package, for the first time in its nearly 40 years of design system development, SHIMA SEIKI has released its new APEXFiz™ as subscription-based design software that can be installed on customers’ individual computers. Maintaining proven functions that have made the APEX series so popular with fashion designers, with APEXFiz™ those strengths are now enhanced with the added versatility to adapt to different work styles and business environments including teleworking and telecommuting. APEXFiz™ software supports the creative side of fashion from planning and design to colorway evaluation, realistic fabric simulation and 3D virtual sampling. Virtual samples are a digitized version of sample making that are accurate enough to be used effectively as prototypes, replacing physical sampling and consequently reducing time, cost and material that otherwise go to waste. APEXFiz™ thereby helps to realize sustainability and digitally transform the fashion supply chain. APEXFiz™ is furthermore available in 5 different product variations that can be selected according to the customer’s needs, from APEXFiz™ Design Jr. to APEXFiz™ Design Pro.

APEXFiz™ is supported by another web service to enhance its user experience even more. yarnbank™ is one of the world's first online platforms for searching and downloading digitized yarns, developed in cooperation with yarn companies from around the world. Registered users can download yarn data for free, for use in fabric simulation and virtual sampling on APEXFiz™, avoiding the need to scan yarn on their own.
