Philip Fimmano, Trend Union 
Today’s society is suffering from the aftershocks of a severe economic crisis. This period of hardship has made the consumer embrace the collective memory of our mothers and grandmothers through different forms of gathering – needlework, cooking and crafting. Learn how  the domestic craft has influenced the creation of contemporary textiles, materials, technologies and productions for home décor, design and fashion. Trends include Draping, Layering, Stitching, Embroidering, Pleating, Faceting, Ribboning, and Yarn Wrapping. Materials for furniture and accessories by leading international designers will be explored as well as how technology and machines can inspire craft techniques for the everyday consumer.  In an incredible reversal of roles, these historical memories are now feeding our high-tech industries – driving them to review the production process with new and more abundant options lending a sense of frivolity to industrial design, feminizing the modernist movement and domesticating the creation of form.
