Sample text

If you are producing a moodboard to meet the requirements of a college/university project brief it may not state a particular size, so you may therefore match it to the size of your student portfolio—A, B, or C (A2, A3, or A4). If you are working to a professional, commissioned brief and a moodboard is requested you will generally be directed to complete the work to a given size. For example, a moodboard commissioned by a spinning company to promote their latest yarn line may need to be D or E size for exhibition purposes (A1 or A0).

Exhibitors present the latest developments in yarns, sample collections, specialized products, trimmings, buttons and accessories, knitwear machinery, software systems, prototypes, trend consultancy, and trend books. Areas within the exhibition include “Fashion at Work,” presenting the latest global trends from companies such as Stylesight, who provide a multilingual website offering an in-depth global analysis of forthcoming trends and present forecasting information for fashion and design. Première Vision/Indigo, Paris, is an important event showcasing current and future fabric collections, presenting the latest fabrics and fabric developments, fashion news, seminars, shows, and trend forecasts.
