Blog: Barcelona to Berlin

Petah Marian | 23 September 2011

As just-style's time at the ITMA international textile and garment machinery exhibition in Barcelona winds down, plans for next week's World Retail Congress in Berlin are winding up.

While I've seen some exciting innovations in cosmetotextiles this morning (the next big thing in fabrics?), and some interesting enzyme denim finishes, plans for the congress continue unabated.

While Berlin will lack the sun, tapas and beaches of Barcelona we are very excited about our plans for WRC, so watch this space.

And - if you're planning on attending and want to tell me about your business - as always, please get in touch - petah.marian@just-style.com.

PS - for those of you wondering about the state of our feet, you'll be happy to know that we were given some very fancy socks - but more on that later.
