Denim Première Vision seemed to shrug off the real and the economic chill as it returned to London this week with a busy show, an enlarged exhibitor list and a sustainability focus both for production and style trends..
Parisian trade show Première Vision welcomed 56,154 visitors on September 17 to 19, at an edition centred on the issues of sustainability and innovation, and boosted by an intense conference programme.
A survey by IFM/Première Vision, to which FashionNetwork had priority access, shows that price and style are no longer the main obstacles to buying sustainable fashion products in France, Italy, Germany and the USA.
The French show organiser is putting an allegedly temporary stop to Première Vision Istanbul, five years after it was launched, in order to focus on its US and French events, whose numbers have recently increased.
This July’s edition of the NYC-based fashion trade fair will focus on sustainability and online sourcing, presenting visitors with 213 exhibitors from 22 different countries, as well as seminars, talks and an exhibition.
The denim trade show continues with its itinerant formula, and will be held at Milan’s Superstudio Più venue on May 28-29. The session will put the industry’s sustainable initiatives in even sharper focus.
