“LUREX, TRAME ET VOLUPTÉ”: A GOLDEN SHOW

27 feb. 2012
 
From February 10 to April 22, 2012, the Textile Museum of Lyon is featuring an exhibition called “Lurex®, Trame et Volupté”. A selection of pieces that had never previously been shown from prestigious fashion houses will be exhibited.
 

The “Lurex®, Trame et Volupté” show will taken you on a journey to the United States, with its chemical innovations, and to Europe, with its fashion designers. The exhibition will also present various materials: from the finest fabrics shot through with gold and silver, to more modern materials.
This exhibition will also be an opportunity to discover Lurex yarn. This very strong thread perfectly mimics the nuances of gold, silver and copper, and allows for creative boldness.

Lyon and fabric

The exhibition also highlights the role of Lyon in the history of fabrics. This know-how is still perpetuated today, for instance, with Techtera, the competitive cluster for textiles and soft materials of the Rhône-Alpes Region.
