Trends and Education

Always an attendee favorite, The Texworld Trend Showcase, curated by New York-based trend agency DONEGER | TOBE, will be back on the show floor, offering insights into the Spring/Summer 2025 themes.

In partnership with Material Exchange, Trend+ is a brand-new, exclusive tool that digitally enhances the Trend Showcase experience by allowing attendees the availability to gain deeper information on the product, order samples to be delivered express, and find easy directions to the booth of the suppliers who made the product. Material Exchange will also join the show floor with a ‘genius bar’, located near the showcase, to help visitors explore the digital showroom and order their samples.

“The trend area is compelling for visitors to Texworld, as it gives them insight into what’s happening in culture and inspires them with products that match the trends in the market, says Ben Felton, Chief Strategy Officer of Material Exchange. Trend+ takes this experience to the next level, allowing visitors to scan each product, see detailed data on it, and order a sample, which will arrive to them by the time they get back to their desks. We’re really excited to be launching this with Texworld, bringing a new, first-of-its-kind innovation to the show”.

Further expanding the trend resources and educational aspect of the co-located event, Texworld New York City proudly announces a collaboration with Arsutoria, the prestigious Milan-based institution renowned for its contributions to footwear and leather goods education.
