INVISTA representatives are introducing three new hosiery innovations designed to meet consumer needs, add value to any collection, and create new opportunities for business growth:

LYCRA® FUSION® TRUE TO YOU technology is a patent-pending innovation allowing the creation of transparent 3D hosiery that delivers a natural-looking luster or shine to the legs.Legwear Innovations LYCRA FIBER MOVES

The innovation is a combination of a new LYCRA® FUSION® yarn with new knitting construction, therefore combining the ‘no ladder / no run’ benefits to the premium fit and uniformity of a 3D construction, all in a natural shine sheer hose.
THERMOLITE® FIR technology is a spun dyed black fiber embedded with special ceramic pigments that absorbs the wearer’s infrared radiation and reflects it back to them as heat energy.Legwear Innovations LYCRA FIBER MOVES
This improves the body’s heat retention and keeps legs warmer, longer. Knitted with LYCRA® BLACK technology, it fulfills consumers’ expectation for true black leggings that won’t fade or wash out after wearing or washing.Legwear Innovations LYCRA FIBER MOVES
LYCRA® MADE TO FIT YOU technology, originally created for knee-highs, is being expanded to offer the same benefits to stay-ups (thigh-highs).
The key to delivering enhanced comfort and fit is the top band’s construction, which is engineered to fit a variety of thigh shapes.Legwear Innovations LYCRA FIBER MOVES
The hosiery stays in place all day without roll over and dig in, so the wearer experiences a “second skin” effect that will appeal to new consumers and revitalize the category.The LYCRA® FIBER MOVES conference opens with an exploration of Financial Macro Trends by author and columnist Alan Friedman, followed by a look at Consumer Mega Trends for Millennials by Euromonitor’s Alison Angus.

Professor Ada Ferri discusses Garments for Cold Climates, Anna Borkowicz of WTiN examines Digitalization in Apparel, and Euromonitor’s Miles Agbanrin explores The Millennial Consumer and How They Shape Retail.

Anne Marie Commandeur of Stijlinstituut Amsterdam presents 2019/2020 Fashion Trends for hosiery and socks that are powered by LYCRA® fiber and THERMOLITE® technology innovations.

Following cocktails and dinner Thursday evening, a highly anticipated fashion show brings forecasted 2019/2020 legwear trends to life and showcases the latest INVISTA innovations for hosiery and socks.

The event ends with a networking breakfast Friday morning.

During the evening’s festivities, key LYCRA® fiber customers will be honored for their contributions to the legwear industry and their loyalty to the LYCRA® brand.

This year’s award winners are Patrizia Giangrossi, owner of PIERRE MANTOUX, and Cathleen Moxham and Dr. Tina Fehling of HanesBrands Inc.

“The LYCRA® brand name has been associated with game-changing, market-driven innovations that have redefined what’s possible for 60 years,” said Sybille Bald, global segment leader – legwear.

-EPCA 2018: Sources say European paraxylene supply to be short, reliant on imports

Indorama Artlant PTA plant main demand center

Middle East well placed to benefit

The European paraxylene market is likely to become structurally short of product as Indorama’s recently restarted Artlant purified terephthalic acid plant in Sines, Portugal, theoretically could absorb all available European production and still require imports, according to market sources.

Register Now  “The Artlant plant will be short,” a source said. Indorama will have to “import from the Middle East or the US because [available] production in Europe is not enough,” the source added.

-New Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Petitions on Polyester Textured Yarn from China and India

Unifi Manufacturing, Inc. and Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, America (petitioners), filed antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petitions on imports of polyester textured yarn from China and India.

The U.S. AD law imposes special tariffs to counteract imports that are sold in the United States at less than “normal value.”

The U.S. CVD law imposes special tariffs to counteract imports that are sold in the United States with the benefit of foreign government subsidies.

For AD/CVD duties to be imposed, the U.S. government must determine not only that dumping and/or subsidies are occurring, but also that there is “material injury” (or threat thereof) by reason of the dumped and/or subsidized imports.
