From 25 to 27 August, 2020 was held INSPIRAMAIS in a format 100% digital. Latin America´s only material design for fashion exhibit presented hundreds of innovations in sustainability, design and technology, international speakers and virtual business rounds with over 10 countries, with the promise to be the best online experience for the entire fashion industry.
Unique of its kind in Latin America, INSPIRAMAIS is known as a reference for the fashion market and is responsible for driving the creative process of the entire clothing, textile, footwear, furniture, automotive, accessories and jewelry industry - national and international - bringing together information that unifies the language and methodology for the entire fashion production chain. The project involved numerous actions, such as the presentation of hundreds of innovative products, the main players in national and international fashion, virtual stands, presentation of color charts, talks, research projects and business rounds.
Walter Rodrigues, stylist, researcher and responsible for INSPIRAMAIS´ Design Center, said “Fashion has been flirting with this virtual path for a long time. The pandemic just accelerated the process. Digital models are fascinating. If in the physical model, we talked to seven thousand professionals, now we had the chance to expand this, and the platform has all the attributes for this promotion. The exhibit extended to 3 days of interaction, with exhibitors, speakers and consultants and will be available to access for 30 more days”.
It is worth remembering that INSPIRAMAIS is a great source of references for fashion designers from many countries, receiving participation of professionals and companies from Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, the United States, Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia, Italy, France, England and Asian countries and from the African continent.
With over 200 products available to the market, Inspiramais Connection sought a production based on unique references and inspirations, based on Brazilianness and mirrored in a vast research material developed by a highly qualified group of design professionals. Under the Free-Spirit theme, the proposal for references and the methodology based on the consumption pyramid proposed for the fashion industry is presented: color charts, innovative products and design solutions for the Luxury, Sustainability, Casual, Performance, Handicraft and Technological categories. This work is the result of extensive work with Brazilian industries from the most diverse hubs in the country - universalizing the national product and expanding sales assertiveness.
