Winter 2022 edition unveils new trends, color palettes and material innovations during one day only trend presentation

Dec 7, 2021

In-person event showcases the latest fabrics and trends.

Texworld New York City and Apparel Sourcing New York City return in-person January 25 – 27, 2022, to the Javits Center with a dramatic presentation of the latest trends. This Winter 2022 edition brings an exciting and artistic direction from the New York-based agency, The Doneger Group, spearheading the look and design for the Trend Showcase, along with offering insights during a one-day only seminar on what’s to come for the Spring/Summer 2023 season. 

The Trend Showcase will fill the hall with innovative materials and color palettes, taking visitors on a journey through the Age of Enlightment.  “We are living in a rapidly changing world and no longer able to exist as we did so in the past”, noted Kai Chow, Creative Director, The Doneger Group. “In this age of enlightenment, we honor the beauty of the earth and the power of technology, seeking to strike the perfect balance between nature and science”. 

Chow will present four unique themes encompassing his vision: Bio-Romance, Earth-Sense, Kinetic-Energy and Utopia-World.  


A new romantic renaissance has begun. We are infatuated by life’s delicate delights – The gentle caress of a cool breeze, the soft kiss of sunlight at dawn. Here, nature and science blend in perfect chemistry.

Conscious living and contemporary lifestyle combine, with earth as our guide and technology as our aide. Bask under the sultry summer sun and take the time to enjoy life in Mediterranean culture.

Let’s get loud! Self-expression runs wild as we mix and match to suit our ever-changing moods. Playful meets punchy and flashy meets fun. We’re moving faster than ever before in this digital age!

What makes us unique? We honor our heritage as we embrace our individuality. In this global melting pot of ancient traditions, we move towards a modern future. It is here that culture and community collide.

In addition to the Trend Showcase and the one-day only Trend Presentation, Texworld NYC and Apparel Sourcing NYC will host a variety of industry experts in their educational program across the three day event. Both Textile Talks and the Lenzing Seminar Series will focus on today’s most relevant topics. 

As the east coast’s largest sourcing event, both domestic and international manufacturers representing all aspects of the textile sourcing industry will be in attendance.  For those exhibitors that are unable to join in-person, The Sourcing Showroom will display their textiles and utilizing technology, buyers can chat with the exhibitors onsite in real time.  Together the two events will showcase the latest fabrics and apparel from more than 35 product categories, including lace, cotton, denim, wool, silk, functional fabrics and more.  

Registration for the Winter 2022 edition is open. For the full seminar schedule or additional information on either of these events, please visit
