Trend Forum is going to be released on Interfilière Connect

12 August 2020

“Only with solidarity and a positive attitude, we can reinvent tomorrow.”  – Jos Berry

Rebuilding, rethinking, reshaping – a clean canvas to restart with intensity and commitment. Inspiration comes in all forms – we observe, we take and we start reconstructing tomorrow. In a time of immense suffering and climate breakdown, we are desperate for signs of life’s, and the lingerie industry’s, resilience. A chance to reshape a small piece of the world in our image of beauty. The forum is inspired by a sculptor’s atelier, dominantly white, the canvas for innovation.

This forum will be filmed and distributed by the new Interfilière CONNECT platform with a live commentary to the eager Interfilière community.
