See Why It’s the Can’t-Miss Event

Shanghai Intertextile Apparel Fabrics is one of the world’s most important destinations for sourcing fabrics and accessories, and it has been a platform for INVISTA to communicate with players across the apparel value chain for 23 years. This year’s event will be no exception. The rich and vivid content delivered at the show will focus on INVISTA’s Innovative Attitude. The main pavilion of the show will be located in “International Hall” at Hall 5.2, where INVISTA’s most innovative products in three apparel segments will be on display:  LYCRA® MOVES™ BRAS, LYCRA® MOVES™ LEGGINGS, and LYCRA® MOVES™ HOSIERY.


According to consumer research conducted in 2016, bra products in China’s domestic market don’t match consumer demands in a host of critical areas, including support, comfort and aesthetic design. To address these concerns, streamline the industry, and consolidate its leadership, INVISTA is launching LYCRA® lastingFIT technology for bra wings. In addition, this cutting-edge technology can contribute to meeting specific quality standards in bra wing fabrics, thereby enabling China’s consumers to experience higher levels of comfort and the appropriate support they expect from a bra worn for different occasions.


Fabrics made with LYCRA® SPORT technology are now available commercially and you'll see leggings on display that are scientifically certified to meet clearly defined Power-Comfort-Energy (PCE™) index criteria. These revolutionary fabrics offer the industry an opportunity to create leggings offering robust compression support tailored to fit the garment’s end use - from gentle to high-impact activities.


LYCRA® FUSION™ technology has already been widely adopted in China’s hosiery sector. It offers highly desirable properties like anti-laddering, comfortable waistbands and lasting fit. Learn more about this innovation and other unique technologies for the legwear sector at the LYCRA® MOVES™ HOSIERY display.


The newest INVISTA technology for socks - THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED (FIR) technology - is designed to bring warmth to socks. It is a new, lightweight, hollow fiber technology with special ceramic pigments that generate warmth for feet, and is also quick-drying and comfortable.


Visit Hall 7.2, Booth E55 to learn about the latest innovative denim products offered by INVISTA and the insights behind them - from consumers wanting a comfortable fit and lasting shape, to relief from the heat and cold. A highlight of the display will be LYCRA® dualFX® technology, a unique innovation that will create new denim fabric applications and fashion trends in the China market. It combines two LYCRA® brand fibers into one resilient yarn that delivers enhanced comfort and exceptional fit to jeans. The two fibers work in tandem to create stretch denim fabrics that won’t stretch out. There will also be a special session outlining the latest woven bottom trends, hosted by INVISTA experts.
