FEBRUARY 2017 - PREMIÈRE VISION PARIS: ENCOURAGING SIGNS IN A CHANGING GLOBAL MARKET Première Vision Paris is set to open this February 2017 session dedicated to the Spring Summer
Première Vision Paris is set to open this February 2017 session dedicated to the Spring Summer 18 collections with a stable offer of 1,678 exhibitors and a strong, international visitorship.
Set against a complex global context - marked by a changing fashion market and political, security and economic threats - the attractiveness and solidity of Première Vision Paris are driven by the demand for a selective offering, creativity as a structuring component of the industry, and a particularly rich program of innovations and news.
During the show, Première Vision will unveil the economic activity of materials for creative fashion within the framework of the Première Vision Barometer – as part of the IFM Première Vision Chair - for the first half of 2016. Their data already confirms a better performance of this particular segment of the market in relation to global activity.
From February 2017, the sourcing circuit followed by leather buyers and designers will be enriched with the introduction of new features coordinated by Première Vision Fabrics, Leather and Accessories.
The Style Focus Forum dedicated to the season’s star silhouettes for the women’s, men’s and casual wear sectors – located in Première Vision Fabrics, Hall 5 – will now include a selection of leathers, to complement the fabrics and components offer on display there.
To optimise the buyer circuit and illustrate the interconnection between Première Vision Accessories and Première Vision Leather, the accessories offer for footwear and leather goods is being moved to the Première Vision Leather Trends Gallery in Hall 3. As a result, the Shoe Focus forum in Hall 4 is replaced by the Bag & Shoe Elements zone at the heart of the Première Vision Leather Trends Gallery. An area which will present the technical and decorative components specifically designed for the footwear and leather goods markets, arranged into various themes.
Echoing Première Vision Leather’s very selective product offer, Maison d’Exceptions, the annual event dedicated to rare savoir faire and exceptional techniques, will be present in Hall 3, in a setting conceived by the Italian designers of Segno Italiano. 27 carefully selected studios – 10 of which are brand new to the show – will reveal their exclusive creations produced using leather, fabrics and accessories.
