The first Denimsandjeans show in Vietnam (and in fact the first denim show there) brought together companies from 10 countries together and they displayed their AW17 collections at the show. Some key trend take aways from the companies who participated in the show were :
Increased usage of tencel , even upto 100% , to give the soft hand feel and lustrous looks to the fabrics.
Dobbies continue to flourish – mutating in design and style on the way.
Hi tech low growth fabrics seem to be flavour of many companies as they try to give the customers more stable garment with fit retained for a longer time.
Selvedge denims are no longer the preserve of a few companies. Many ambitious companies came out with their own collections in the category.
Playing with coatings : Coatings continue to be important part of finishing process for denims. Companies play around with them – using multiple colors, double side coats, multiple coats etc. The list is endless.
Bi-stretch or 4 way stretch as they call, is on the move with producers coming out with collections and customers looking forward.
