25/02/2019 – Première Vision — auf Deutsch lesen
53,156 International Visitors from 127 countries: A high-performing edition and solid attendance influenced by market concerns over Brexit.
The latest edition of Première Vision Paris illustrated the strength of its leadership and influence on the global creative fashion industry. It's 70 percent international visitorship – still unsurpassed in the sector – is particularly notable for its high quality, demonstrating the show's robustness in the face of strong political and economic uncertainties in world markets.
This impressive performance was nonetheless marked by a slight decline in visitor numbers (-2.3 percent vs. February 2018), a direct consequence of the market's jitteriness in light of the impending exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union. British fashion brands and buyers are playing it safe as Brexit edges closer, solidifying fears and slowing down decision-making. This is evidenced by a significant 16 percent decline in British visitors, which alone accounts for two-thirds of the decline in attendance at the show.
Première Vision Marketplace
The physical implementation of the Marketplace deployed at the show was a resounding success. Buyers from major international brands and exhibitors clearly expressed their excitement. Launched last September with the weavers' collections, the digital platform integrated tanners in February. Denim-makers will go online next May, followed by accessories and components manufacturers in September 2019.
The success of the Wearable Lab as a true hotspot for meetings was confirmed by a 3rd edition with non-stop attendance. With start-ups, innovative materials, embedded technologies, a forward-looking exhibition, expert conferences and more, the space dedicated to Fashion Tech was steadily busy, confirming that technological innovation is central to the sector's priorities.
