Firm dates now confirmed for reschedules live and online events.
Initially announced in early 2020 and slated to take effect in 2021, the revised Première Vision Paris calendared was delayed due to the pandemic. The new calendar will now come into effect in 2022.
For Première Vision, a leading player in the global creative fashion industry, this means advancing the dates of its flagship event to meet the current demands of the market, which has seen a significant expansion in terms of its design and collection-delivery calendars.
The show will now be welcoming its visitors – buyers, designers, production heads, fashion and accessory brand managers – and its exhibitors – spinners, weavers, tanners, textile designers, accessory and component manufacturers, and fashion manufacturers – at the end of January/early February for the spring-summer collections, and in the first two weeks of July for the autumn-winter collections.
In 2022, the hybrid event will be held at the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte (physical show) and online on the Première Vision website and marketplace (Digital Show):
-February 8, 9 & 10, 2022, to accompany the creation of the Spring Summer 23 collections
-July 5, 6 & 7, 2022 to accompany the creation of the Autumn Winter 23/24 collections
Première Vision Group decided to advance its traditional dates (mid-February for spring-summer and mid-September for autumn-winter) in order to meet its audiences’ new needs regarding material selections and inspiration. These were brought to light in a European-wide survey (France, Italy, Germany, the UK and Spain) of 1765 industry professionals conducted on its behalf by the Institut Français de la Mode and communicated in the first semester of 2020 .
The results of the survey indicated that 72% of the brands surveyed favoured advancing the show to the end of January/early February, and 69% favoured an event held at the beginning of July.
This strategic decision to advance the dates was further encouraged by a wide-ranging survey, conducted in 2020 and relaunched in the 3rd quarter of 2021, of Première Vision’s exhibiting partners and industrialists.
Some 65.5% of the latter indicated they were in favour of bringing the show forward to the end of January/ early February, and 70% in favour of the show taking place in July.
As a result of these changes, the Blossom Première Vision show, launched in 2016 and dedicated to the pre-collections of luxury and high-end brands, will now be held annually. It will thus be held each year in December to accompany the spring-summer pre-collections, while the autumn winter pre-collections will be presented alongside the main collections in July at Première Vision Paris.
NEW: A new event, whose concept and details will be unveiled in the coming months, will be held in the first half of September in Paris.
