11:00 AM “Acting”: Spring/Summer 2013 trends with an overview of the season & special focus on denim
2G2L Fashion Design & Consulting: Art Directors, Texworld Paris

“The garment is a disguise that we wear on top of our personality. PLAY, FIND, BE, ENHANCE, LIVE: ACT!
The garment is an extension of our personality; it is the reflection of our desire to be. It modulates our relationship with others by our appearance.
To be? Yes, but to appear in what form? That is the question. Our desire of transparency towards others is not simple. The reflection of ourselves starts in the mirror and with the fatal question: WHO do we want to be? In our contemporary and globalized society, reality often mixes with fiction in our life. Our virtual appearances serve our real personality.

The course of Spring/Summer 2013 explores the desire to show beyond reality, the desire of play. 5 Acts of a play directed by us and for us, where we become our fictional character.”

For instance, how a local supply chain can enable quicker reaction to market trends, faster turns and top-notch customer service. The ability to tailor a product to fit the exact needs of the customer in a timely, cost-effective manner is a big part of the American advantage.

Decision-makers from domestic companies share their strategies for success and explain the benefits of keeping things local, especially in an unpredictable world-wide market.
