DMIx has expanded its eXcite inspiration hub with the introduction of material trendboards, showcasing the latest fabric and material trends for the Spring/Summer 2024 season. These trendboards are displayed using DMIx MoodBoard tool, enabling users to easily explore and share trending materials with their teams, while incorporating them into their own moodboards.

Developed in close collaboration with the DMI Fashion Institute’s global network and an international textile industry advisory board, these material trendboards offer users a diverse range of trending fabrics and materials to be inspired from, including satin, polished PVC, golden metallics, and leather.

According to Gerd Willschütz, COO and co-founder of ColorDigital GmbH, “The DMIx ecosystem is designed to enable fully digital workflows, starting with color and design, collaborating with suppliers to bulk production and ready-to-market digital prototypes. With the new eXcite inspiration hub, we provide even more digital inspiration and guidance to our users.”

Carl Tillesen, COO and Trend Analyst at DMI Fashion Institute, notes that “materials regain the importance and respect they deserve. Some of the most genius people in the industry are textile designers. With their fabric and material creations, they set the tone for a season. Once the materials have been decided, the mood of a collection is set too.”

It’s important to note that these material trendboards are available to DMIx users, further enhancing the platform’s position as the digital ecosystem for fully digital collaboration in product development for the fashion and lifestyle industry. Designers can now access the latest color trends and materials with ease, paving the way for more innovative and sustainable fashion designs.
