Première Vision New York to showcase Fall/Winter 17-18 trends

Première Vision New York, which is set to take place from 19-20 July, will present collections from 352 exhibitors, a trend area, and the unique Première Vision colour range, along with numerous seminars, fashion exhibitions and special creative collaborations.

For the second edition in a row, Première Vision will be held at Pier 94, a venue with the right capacity for a show that continues to grow, organisers report.

A leading event for several years now for fabrics, textile designs and accessories, Première Vision has also become a sourcing destination for leather buyers and industry professionals looking for new quality solutions and full packaging manufacturing services. Following January edition of this sourcing platform, visitors will discover a highly diversified selective offer this month.

Renewed collaboration

Première Vision and The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have renewed their collaboration. In close cooperation with the CFDA, this partnership allows Première Vision to offer designers more targeted services and provide them with a range of support at Premiere Vision New York.

The collaboration comprises various activities, such as providing assistance to young brands and designers, particularly with small-scale orders; fashion presentations for CFDA Members, and working together to select the Première Vision Brand Ambassadors. Future cooperation will extend to manufacturing, a sector that Première Vision has been developing since January 2016.

Designers firmly in the spotlight

For several years now, Première Vision New York has given North American visitors the opportunity to discover the talented young designers revealed at the renowned International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyères.

This year, the show will feature an inspiring exhibition dedicated to the work of Wataru Tominaga, winner of the 2016 Grand Jury Prize Première Vision. Additional exhibition will be mounted to provide insight into the ideas and work of Brand Ambassadors Anne-Marie Maniego and Peter Trainor.

Fashion and market information

Offering a true platform for all aspects of sourcing, Première Vision also presents a broad overview of fashion and market trends in the activity sectors present at the show. Thus, for the first time, the show this season is proposing separate seminars dedicated to leather and manufacturing.

For leather, Mitch Alfus, founder of Libra Leather, will introduce the new directions for Fall/Winter 17-18. Megan Donadio, of Kurt Salomon, will offer visitors insight into the current state of manufacturing in the US: What fundamental shifts need to happen for US brands to compete. These two special talks will add to the programme of seminars at the show.
