In einer McKinsey-Umfrage unter Modeunternehmen gaben drei Viertel an, dass Versandstörungen die größte Bedrohung für Flexibilität und Geschwindigkeit darstellen. Bei 71 Prozent soll bis 2025 durch Produktionsverlagerung in die Nähe des Verbrauchermarkts das Nearshoring ausgebaut werden, und 24 Prozent planen, im Land der jeweiligen Marke zu produzieren.

In den Keynote-Sitzungen und Podiumsdiskussionen der Kornit Fashion Week London wurden wichtige Branchenthemen beleuchtet, etwa der Umstieg auf Nearshore-Produktion, die Entwicklung reaktionsschneller und gewissenhafter Abläufe im Gleichgewicht zwischen Verantwortung und Rentabilität sowie der Weg zur Agilität mit Blick auf die sich ändernden Kundenanforderungen.

Textil-Studierende der Hochschule Niederrhein auf der Kornit Fashion Week

Die Hochschule Niederrhein war mit dem Fachbereich Textil- und Bekleidungstechnik auf der Kornit Fashion Week (15. bis 17. Mai) in London zu Gast. Fünf Studierende - begleitet von Professorin Maike Rabe und Anna Koch, Fachlehrerin für Gestaltungslehre und Textildesign- stellten dort ihre Looks aus. Entstanden sind die Arbeiten in Zusammenarbeit mit dem hochschuleigenen Forschungsinstitut für Textil und  Bekleidung sowie dem Industriepartner Kornit Digital.

„Art meets Fashion“ lautet das Thema der Bachelorarbeit und Abschlusskollektion der Studentin Anne-Sophie Haupt. Als Inspiration diente der Eco Street Artist Vhils, der mit der Technik des "Abtragens" arbeitet. Es entstehen Décollagen, bei denen er Schichten von mehrfach überklebten Plakatwänden abträgt und hieraus neue Motive erzeugt. Dieses Abtragen von Material hat die Studentin textil übersetzt, indem sie eigens erstellte Décollagen auf Textilien gedruckt oder mit dem Laser Details in die Kleidung einbrannte.

Unter dem Titel „Shibori - Traditionelle Färbemethoden neu interpretiert“ setzt sich die Bachelorarbeit von Lion Busch mit der Re-Interpretation und Modernisierung der japanische Färbetechnik auseinander. Michèle Lemper greift in ihrer Kollektion „Aspirational Realness“ das Social-Media-Phänomen auf, dass nach mehr Realität in der Selbstdarstellung auf Social-Media-Plattformen strebt.

Die Kollektion „(un)used“ von Franziska Jauch ist das Ergebnis eines Alternativ-Konzeptes zur herkömmlichen Jeans-Herstellung. Kern der Idee: Den Used Look durch Digitaldruck anstatt durch chemische oder mechanische Behandlung zu realisieren.

Die Studentin Nadine Gottwald kreierte eine Modekollektion, fernab von stereotypischer Farb- und Formgebung. „To appear as we please“ ist der Titel ihrer Kollektion, die frei macht von tradierten Vorstellungen und das Augenmerk nicht gleich auf die geschlechtliche Zugehörigkeit richtet.

Die Arbeiten werden ebenfalls auf einem VIP-Event von Kornit bei der FESPA Global Print Expo 2022 in Berlin gezeigt, Europas führender Messe für Sieb- und Digitaldruck, Großformatdruck und Textildruck. Im Herbst folgt eine Präsentation auf der Neo.Fashion erneut in Berlin (5. bis 9. September). Die Neo.Fashion hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, Plattform und Drehscheibe für die besten Absolventinnen und Absolventen der Modehochschulen und jungen Designerinnen aus ganz Deutschland und dem deutschsprachigen Raum zu sein.

Highlights:

  • Hunderte von Designern, Markenartiklern, Modeschöpfern, E-Commerce-Plattformen, Herstellern und virtuellen Modepionieren besuchten die Veranstaltungen in der Zentrale, in den FuE- und Produktionszentren von Kornit und an renommierten Veranstaltungsorten in Tel Aviv.

  • Derzeit ist ein Trend zur Verlagerung der Massenproduktion von Textilien aus dem fernen in das nahe gelegene Ausland zu beobachten – mit Möglichkeiten zur schlanken Produktion von Kleinserien ohne Bestandsrisiken sowie grenzenloser Kreativität und Flexibilität für Designer und Modeschöpfer – möglich dank der neuen Lösung von Kornit für die Massenfertigung.
  • Außerdem präsentierte Kornit seine Kornit Atlas MAX Poly erstmals öffentlich, eine Lösung für die digitale Veredelung von Textilien in hohen Stückzahlen aus Polyester- und Polyestermischgewebe.

Together, these three elements are central to Kornit’s 4.0 strategy, bringing sustainable, on-demand fashion to the mainstream with end-to-end workflow solutions.

Kornit Fashion Week Tel Aviv 2022

Kornit Fashion Week features an immersive runway showcase produced by worldwide fashion icon, producer, director, and entrepreneur Motty Reif. The week follows successful Kornit events in 2021 across Los Angeles, New York, Milan, and Tel Aviv – displaying the creative freedom associated with sustainable, on-demand fashion fulfillment. Attendees will experience runway events showcasing designer creativity across a broad array of collections. These fascinating collections were created in just a few weeks, unlike typical fashion and textile production processes that take over six months.

Industry-First Introductions

Looking behind the scenes at Kornit Fashion Week, attendees will witness Kornit’s disruptive mass production technology in action. Unveiled for the first time, the Kornit Apollo direct-to-garment (DTG) system addresses accelerated post-pandemic market trends for streamlined supply chains and production nearshoring. Demonstrated at an exclusive VIP event, Kornit Apollo features the Company’s proven MAX technology offering the highest retail quality combined with full automation control and integrated smart curing processes, utilizing functionality from Lichtenau, Germany-based Tesoma (Kornit’s recently announced acquisition). The solution is the most comprehensive digital, single-step end-to-end system for nearshore short-and-medium-runs mass production and offers optimal TCO and highest output per operator. The result far surpasses performance of screen printing and analog techniques. With early customer engagements in the second half of 2022, the system will be available mid-2023.

Physical and Virtual Worlds

Kornit enables customers to exchange supply chain headaches and materials waste for unsurpassed creativity and a frictionless pixel-to-parcel-to-doorstep production experience. Supported by the KornitX workflow solution, customers have access to a scalable and modular ecosystem for on-demand decorated apparel and textiles.

This year, a series of fringe programme events together with some new show features will inspire fairgoers throughout the four-day fair.

New features for contract business

Given the growing demand for textile solutions for architecture, interior design and the hotel industry, the coming August fair will highlight leading contract upholstery suppliers with distinctive labels. In addition, the show will feature a showcase area at hall 5.1 which displays quality contract upholstery from exhibitors. The area will be decorated by interior designers, demonstrating the functionalities of different contract textile products.

To introduce the opportunities that the textile industry can capture from contract business, both domestic and international architects, hoteliers, interior designers and industry experts have been invited to share their insights about design, market, materials and project management on the Contract Business Days, on 28 & 29 August.

Naima A Khan, founder and interior designer from The Green Design in UAE, for instance, will be speaking on The Art of Sustainable Interior Design. She has worked with many international home fashion retail store developers, as well as textile and interior companies, and is experienced in using therapeutic colour schemes, sustainable materials and sunlight in different design projects. Another guest, Esra Lemmens, who is also a designer and active speaker at design events, will talk about the expanding importance of design throughout Dubai as well as her suggestions for doing business in Dubai.

Other speakers also include Martin Oliu from the international design company, Harmony World Consultant and Design (HWCD). He has participated in a broad area of design such as architectural construction & interior design and is responsible for various luxury residential and hotel design projects. Professor Thomas Charles, who has been working on industrial product design and research for user experience & consumer behaviour study, business strategy and branding designs will give a talk on ‘The Power of Innovative Design’. Trevira CS will also participate in the Contract Business Day through their Chinese representative, Jenny Zhang, who will share how the permanently flame retardant Trevira CS textiles can fit into contract business.

Digital printing and technics remain a focal point

The Digital Printing Micro Factory concept was first introduced in the 2017 edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, and received much attention and positive feedback. To cater to the growing demand for efficient, one-step textile solutions, Global Fortune Limited from Hong Kong will work jointly with Kornit Digital and Bullmer to set up a Micro Factory at this August’s fair. An advanced digital printing system – Allegro & Cut by Kornit Allegro – will be introduced. The system streamlines the entire production process by combining printing and drying together so multiple machinery is not needed. It is also eco-friendly as one single ink set suits various fabric types, and designs will be printed in shapes and sizes that are ready for cutting. Visitors can learn more about the complete production process from printing and cutting to sewing via the onsite demonstration.

In addition to forums discussing how digital printing helps flexible production, there will also be an array of forums where some top domestic industry players will share their experience in resolving  technical problems in productions and satisfying requirements in different product tests.

Forward-looking events to ignite inspiration

The trend committee formed by international trendsetter the NellyRodiTM Agency has developed three themes, namely Caring Future, Crazy Future and Emo Future for the 2019 International Lifestyle Trends. Apart from the trend area where product displays are located, visitors can get a better understanding about the future living styles from the panel discussion and trend area tour. The agency’s creative director, Vincent Grégoire, will guide tours to explain the trend concept. He will also join other industry experts in the panel discussion on consumer lifestyle trends.

Another inspiring event during the show is the Future Talk in which representatives from different industries including fashion brand Shiatzy Chen, home appliance giant Haier, gourmets and lifestyle experts will share their perspectives on the future trends.

The show will be held from 27 – 30 August in the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Autumn Edition is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
