LYCRA® Style fiber was developed for the unique branding, performance and pricing needs of the ready-to-wear market. The brand helps to create clothes that consumers love to wear, all day, every day, from day to night and casual to dressy occasions.
“INVISTA’s new ready-to-wear brand, LYCRA® Style, is extremely important to the growth of our overall INVISTA apparel business,” says Libby Neuner, INVISTA’s global marketing director for outerwear. “The sheer size of the ready-to-wear business and the opportunity to further penetrate the market makes this a critical area of focus for INVISTA.”
