Consumer behaviours, trends, and conducting business were at the heart of Inspiramais, most recently taking place January 14th and 15th in São Paulo, Brazil. The showcase included the participation of 16 tanneries and balanced commercial relationships, industry knowledge, and diverse views on the future of consumption, fashion, and society in general.
Inspiramais is carried out by the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB), the Brazilian Association of Companies of Components for Leather, Footwear, and Artifacts (Assintecal), Abit, Tex Brasil, By Brasil Components and Chemicals, and the Brazilian Leather project, a partnership between the CICB and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) to encourage leather exports.
At Inspiramais deals were made, trends were launched, and information was shared that will be guiding new concepts in footwear, accessories, clothing, and interior design. Key points of the two busy days were the appreciation of experience, people, and ancestry; prioritizing sustainable practices; and giving ample space to quality. These movements are already underway in the fashion industry and present several opportunities for leather - a material with attributes such as the unlimited possibility for creation, excellent resistance, and natural sustainability.
This edition of Inspiramais — its 10th anniversary! — had numbers that reflected the pulsating meeting of fashion, productive awareness, and the commercial platform that comes together in São Paulo every semester and is Latin America's only design and material innovation fair under one roof. The upcoming edition will be held on July 7th and 8th.
