Functional Fabric / 2014 Fall/Winter Trend
Transcript of Functional Fabric / 2014 Fall/Winter Trend
Functional Fabrics + Garment show
2014 Fall/Winter Trend
Also known as: Capillary action.
Ability of liquids to flow into narrow spaces against the force of gravity.
Wicking / Moisture Movement
Sportswear, Activewear, functional underwear.
Polyester and Polyamide (Hydrophobic)
Moves moisture away from the skin --> Outer fabric. (Quick Dry is very similar)
Testing Methods (Wicking, Drying rate, Water absorbency)
Water Drop Test: Soak up water drop
JIS L 1907 Byreck Method (Wicking）: Woven > 5cm, Knits > 8cm
JIS L 1096 (Drying rate): Moisture after 30 Min: <30%
Function: Do not allow water to pass through.
Fabric: Densly woven fabrics, Membranes (micro porous/ hydrophilic) PU coating (polyurethane)
Membrane + Fabric = laminate
Membranes: polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTF)
Coatings used are liquid solutions sprayed onto the fabric.
DIN EN 20811 (ISO 811) = Static column water resistance.
Must pass water pressure of at least 1300mm.
Increased pressure, until penetration occurs at 3 different places.
Absolute water proofness can only be achieved with sealed seams!
Welded/ Bonded: Ultrasonic, assembles two or more layers of material. Glued together to be waterproof without stitches.
Sealed: Conventional stitches will be covered with tape.
Resistance of a fabric to surface wetting.
Functional Effect: Protection against rain and water-based stains.
1. Regular WR = Not wash fast.
2. Durable WR = Permanently wash fast
Finishing: Flurocarbon (Teflon)
Trademark Brands for waterproofing
Anti-Odor / Anti-Bacterial
Effect: Increased Hygiene, Stops bacterial Growth, No smell.
Technologies: Cyclodextrine or silver based antimicrobials
Can either be spun into the yarn or used as a spray on finishing.
Uses: Athlectic wear, Underwear, Medical wear.
Trademark brands for Anti-Bacterial
Protection from mosquito bites
Can be utilized in the yarn + spray on
End uses: Sportswear, Hunting apparel, Sleeping bags, Military clothing.
Radiation from the sun is comprised of visible light, infrared and UV (Ultra Violet)
UV rays are very harmful to humans
End use: Garments, hats, sportswear, swimwear
Technology: UV protective agent
Test Norm: ASTM D6603
Function: Increasing body warmth
Fabric: Fleece, Closely packed yarn + knit, warmth is trapped.
Outlast (temperature regulation):
Germanium Alloy Yarn
Germanium is a hard rock, has the same crystal structure as a diamond.
It is a Semiconductor with both electrical and insulator tendencies.
Germanium Alloy Crystal (GAC) has Far infra red, which penetrate the skin, causing better blood circulation
Function: Move perspiration vapor away from the body and out through the clothing.
Three man types: 1) Closely woven or knitted fabrics 2) Micro porous system 3) Hydrophilic system
Micro holes, to small for a raindrop, but big enough for a water molecule, allowing for vapour to pass through/
Crucial part in fashion
Important personality descriptors.

Brooches at Emanuel Ungaro
Offbeat at Lanvin
Tribal at Donna Karan
Earcuffs at Chloe
