The world’s leading textile tradeshow Première Vision is held at the Parc des Exposition on the outskirts of Paris. This bi-annual show covers all aspects of fashion textiles including manufacturing, leather, hardware and trims, with 1,867 international exhibitors showcasing their latest innovations and collections to 60,716 global professionals. Even in this difficult financial climate, the event attracted 4% more visitors compared to this time last year, and 300 more exhibitors since the last show in February 2012.
Demonstrating the importance of Première Vision, an area solely dedicated to knitwear debuted at the show. Knitwear Solutions, situated in the main hall, presented flatbed knitwear innovations and manufacturers.
Stylus highlights the emerging directions in fabric qualities and application, colour, and hardware and trim.
