Athleisure: Stretching the Limits


Wednesday 04th November 2015

13:45 CET

Presentation Area next to the PERFORMANCE FORUM

As consumers demand more from their garments, aesthetically and technically, interest for performance fabrics is moving beyond active sportswear. Does this imply rethinking technical textiles? What are the best fibres and blends to develop? What functions need to be emphasised and how should they be promoted? This talk will bring together suppliers of innovative textiles to discuss what fabrics are best suited to the versatile needs of crossover collections. 

The discussing debate guests are:
- Mr Alexander Foyle, Managing Director EMEA of Celliant
- Mr Jeroen Muijseres, CEO of Flocus
- Mr Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, EMEA Marketing Account Director, Activewear and Outdoor of Invista
