496 Fabric Lab’s Fashion-Driven Collection

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Visual, inventive and textural, 496 Fabric Lab is capitalizing on the denim fashion trend choosing to showcase new fabrications on bomber jackets, tops and trench coats.

The mill believes the denim sweatshirt is a key item going into Autumn/Winter 2018-19.

496 uses double beam jacquard weaving techniques to create double layer jacquard denim. Meanwhile, other styles feature hand cut threads and 3-D effects.

See-through denim, or what the mill describes as “denim lace,” adds an airy feel to the category.
