TALKING TEXTILES - A new textile trend magazine by Lidewij Edelkoort # 2

"There is an urgent need to fill the void and bring contemporary textile design into the 21st century”, says Lidewij Edelkoort, world-renowned trend forecaster and Dean of Hybrid Studies at The New School, Parsons School of Design. 

We are currently experiencing a return to textiles and their cultural expressions. TALKING TEXTILES is a new trend magazine about the textile industry, looking at how fashion design starts to focus on fabric, how interior design brings back upholstery and how art students reach out to the loom. There is a renewed interest in material processes and an urgency to understand what products are made of. Emerging companies are reintroducing arts and crafts and the recycling of scraps to not let anything go to waste. 

The wild and vibrant second issue of TALKING TEXTILES is organised around the culture of cloth. In this trend magazine, the mood is up and creativity is on the loose, celebrating the revival of textiles. This issue is filled with remarkable developments in textiles, art, clothes and interiors, from artisans and artists to mills, manufacturers, designers and innovators as well as talented graduates. With colour, textile and yarn forecasts by Li Edelkoort, a whirlwind of floating fibres, harvested yarns, tubular colours, woven fences and knitted architecture will fuel readers’ creative energy.

The sources of inspiring yarns contrast a biotech revolution with biological evolution, from farming the DNA of spiders to breeding the right food and the right sheep. From farm to fashion and from lab to elaboration, yarns will dominate the near future grown, projecting a utopian future of sustainable growth and the renaissance of smaller cottage industries spanning the Hudson Valley, Silicon Valley and Mount Fuji’s Yamanashi region. From 3D drawings of laces to robots knitting wire, a young generation is aiming at a high-tech future where ethereal beauty can shape clothes and promises to knit bridges. This trend tool is brimming with innovation and examples of expressive textile design, exploring ever-changing ways to bring fabrics to the fore, and collectively defending textiles as an intrinsic part of life and style.

Trend moods for autumn/winter 2018-2019 and spring/summer 2018 and are featured. Other trend stories include: quilting, prints & textile fragments, upholstery fabrics, rugs & flooring, graduate talent from across Europe and the United States, haute couture, 3D printing & technology, industrial mills, indigo dyeing, boro boro, aprons, upcycling, hand looms, textile art & more!

To promote the survival of the different textile expressions, the first ever New York Textile Month was initiated, a celebration of textiles all over the city and its boroughs. The first issue of TALKING TEXTILES also reflects topics linked to this festival's events, helping readers understand how to embrace the fabrics of life. For more information www.textilemonth.nyc
