From Paul McCartney to Pope Francis, global leaders are focusing in Colombia as the world top next destination to visit and invest, and the world of fashion isn’t far behind.

We are getting closer to COLOMBIAMODA 2017 the next big thing in world fashion trends happening in the city of Medellin, Colombia from July 25-27.

Top trends in shapewear, underwear, swimwear and jeanswear will all be featured at this global event, once again showcasing Colombia’s potential as one of the top suppliers of shape wear in the Western Hemisphere and second worldwide supplier after China.

COLOMBIAMODA 2017 will showcase exclusive products including garments that have added value, including: bands for posture correction, abdominal bands to raise body temperature and textiles with special properties, among other products. COLOMBIAMODA 2017 will also bring wearable innovations using seaweed or caffeine to promote weight loss, and things like milk and oats to nourish the skin, in this summer edition.

The show will feature a variety of designs tailored to the needs of the world market whether for molding hips, abdomen, waist, legs, buttocks or bust, with products such as bodies, T-shirts, bras and cyclists gears. In swimwear, new trends will feature a blend of elegance, comfort and color that include handcrafted techniques that add uniqueness to designs.

Diversity of color tones that are added to an artisanal touch become the differentiating seal in Colombia, positioning the country successfully in international premium niches, reaching more than 50 destinations worldwide and making the U.S the top export destination for Colombian Swimwear. Colombia is also the second supplier to the U.S in the western Hemisphere, after Mexico.
