  • Tips for attending fabric trade shows like Première Vision

    with Stephanie Steele
    Summary

    Just over a week ago we visited Première Vision, the global leading fabric trade fair. It is immense in there. The whole show is dedicated fully to fashion fabric, including leather, yarns and tech. There’s also specific halls for manufacturing and accessories, so you can connect with producers of components and trims, as well as the fabric for your full production chain.

    If you’re a designer, then you should visit Première Vision (PV) at least once, as it helps to understand the grand scale of all the people involved in the production of your creations. Trade fairs run year long, but are generally concentrated in Autumn and Spring, giving designers, brands, buyers and manufacturers a set timescale to work from.
