Italian Textile and Fashion Industry Expects Only 1.5% Growth in First Half

MILAN — The Italian textile and fashion industry is expected to grow, but at a moderate pace.
According to projections released by industry association Sistema Moda Italia’s president Marino Vago on Wednesday, revenues for the sector are expected to gain only 1.5 percent in the first six months of the year compared to the same period in 2018. In particular, the textile area is forecast to grow 1.1 percent and the fashion division 1.9 percent.
In the January-June 2019 period, export will still be the industry’s driving force but will grow at a slower pace, gaining 1.8 percent compared to the 2.6 percent increase registered in the same period in 2018. Overall, the trade balance is expected to be up 2.5 percent.
Among the elements influencing the figures, Vago mentioned the European elections and a potential recession of the area’s economy, Brexit and the commercial situation between the U.S. and China.
The executive urged to keep a cautious approach given these challenges, which might interrupt the positive momentum the industry experienced in 2018.
Preliminary 2018 data released by the association showed that last year, sales were up 2.1 percent to 55.2 billion euros, with textile and fashion companies increasing at a different pace and reporting

London’s Fashion and Textile Museum Spotlights Mary Quant and Terence Conran

LONDON — Mary Quant and Terence Conran are at the center of the new exhibition “Swinging London: A Lifestyle Revolution” that runs until June 2 at the Fashion and Textile Museum.
The exhibition focuses on the cultural and fashion icon Quant, known for her bob hairstyle and mod fashions, and her close friend and collaborator, designer, restaurateur and retailer Conran. Their works are displayed together in lifestyle settings such as a living room and a shop.
The exhibition also presents textiles, fashion, design and the art of the Chelsea Set, a group of revolutionary young designers, artists, photographers, musicians, fashion models and intellectuals, whose activities centered around Kings Road in Chelsea from 1952 to 1977.
Dennis Nothdruft, head of exhibitions at the museum and curator of this exhibition, said during the press tour that the exhibition is meant to celebrate the achievements of Quant, Conran and many others who, through commercial success, brought clothes, furniture — and a modern lifestyle — into people’s lives in post-war Britain.
Displays include pieces from Quant’s legendary shop Bazaar, to a few daring fashion pieces done in PVC from the Alligator by Mary Quant line to the Banana Split minidress. They are displayed among furniture, ceramics, lighting, homeware and

Traceable Supply Chain Is Key for Italian Textile Companies

MILAN — Raising the bar on sustainability should be the main goal of the Italian textile business is what emerged from the press conference opening the 27th edition of Milano Unica, which closed here on Thursday. In line with the same edition last year, about 6,000 fashion companies attended the fair, which registered an increase of international buyers, especially from Holland, the U.S., Japan, China, France and Germany.
“Sustainability has been treated as a marketing tool, but it’s time to put the focus on what the Italian companies have done so far and it’s time to put the accent on the sustainable approach of the whole supply chain,” said Andrea Crespi, president of the Italian fashion chamber’s sustainability committee.
The Italian textile compartment’s leadership in terms of sustainability is a fact, according to Sistema Moda Italia president Marino Vago, who revealed that “an executive from a French major luxury brand admitted that our textile companies have a five-year competitive advantage on our competitors.”
The main issue is to guarantee the traceability of the raw materials, according to Milano Unica president Ercole Botto Poala. “Technology and the digitalization can be instrumental in the development of this process,” he said, adding that despite the new

Australian Fashion Chamber and Council of Textile & Fashion to Merge

SYDNEY — Australia’s two key fashion industry bodies are joining forces.
The three-year-old, designer-focused Australian Fashion Chamber is to merge with the 65-year-old Council of Textile & Fashion, the peak body for Australia’s clothing, textile and footwear industries, it was revealed Wednesday in Sydney.
A name change for the proposed merged group is due to be discussed at the respective entities’ annual general meetings at the end of the year, said David Giles-Kaye, executive director of the Council of Textile & Fashion, with the first meeting of the new body slated for early 2018.
The Australian Fashion Council could be one of the possibilities for the new name, Giles-Kaye said.
The Australian Fashion Council name is owned by the CTF, with one of the AFC’s current board members, Karen Webster, a former chair. The existence of so many fashion organizations has led to some confusion in the Australian media.
The new industry body will benefit from having established offices in the country’s two largest cities and a combined membership that spans the entire Australian fashion and textile industry value chain.
The Sydney-based AFC boasts 90 designer members, while the Melbourne-based CTF has “several hundred” members, according to Giles-Kaye, ranging from textile manufacturers to fashion tech startups through

Hybrid Yarns and Textile Preforming for Thermoplastic Composites

Hybrid Yarns and Textile Preforming for Thermoplastic Composites


The Textile Progress monograph series provides a critical and comprehensive examination of the origination and application of developments in the textile industry and its products. This issue reviews developments in Polymer composites which are increasingly gaining importance as substitute materials for metals in the aerospace, automotive, marine, sporting goods and electronic industries. In past decades, fiber-reinforced composite materials were principally fabricated using thermosetting matrices, with all the associated disadvantages (eg brittleness, lengthy cure cycles and inability to recycle damaged or scrapped parts). Such intrinsic problems have led to the recent development of the thermoplastic matrix composite system, which provides several advantages in terms of mechanical properties and processing. This monograph covers the characterization of hybrid yarns, their structure and properties, and details various types of preforming in the context of the major textile manufacturing techniques (weaving, braiding, knitting etc.).These are described in relation to the practical application of thermoplastic materials in applications within the transport, manufacturing and medical sectors.
