The world’s leading trade show for the upstream creative fashion industry succeeded in mobilizing industry professionals from 124 countries around more than 1,700 exhibitors for a distinctly particular edition due to the corona virus health crisis. With nearly 45,000 visitors, Première Vision welcomed more than 80 percent of its usual audience to Paris this past 11-13 February to imagine, design and produce the Spring/Summer 2021 collections. This quite particular edition, dedicated to materials for the Spring-Summer 2021 season, presented a selective and creative offer from 1,710 international exhibitors in yarns and fibres, fabrics, leathers, surface designs, accessories and fashion manufacturing – with 48 countries represented. This was a solid showing, despite the loss of 45 Chinese companies initially registered that were neither able to attend the show nor be represented by their European teams.
In this disrupted environment, Première Vision Paris fulfilled its role as catalyst for the global creative fashion industry by welcoming more than 80 percent of its customary visitors. In all, 44,414 visitors and international buyers came to meet their creative and industrial partners. Attendees voiced their approval for an event rich in inspirations, experiences and expert and strategic talks on the sector’s key issues, including eco-responsibility, technologies, societal changes, unique know-hows and more.
