Denim Première Vision is staying close to home.
The trade show organizer announced Wednesday that it will replace the June 10-11 event in Milan with a “denim village” inside its marquee event, Première Vision, in Paris, Sept. 15-17.
In a letter to the denim community, the Denim Première Vision team stated: “We need to be sure that all conditions are fully in place to safely ensure a moment of business opportunity and calm for the entire denim community. And unfortunately, because of the international health crisis we are all facing, it will not be possible to do so in Milan in June.”
Denim Première Vision plans to return to Milan, May 26-27, 2021.
The new space in Paris, however, will give designers and brands “an additional opportunity to meet more outstanding suppliers and discover their creative collections,” the organizer stated. There, attendees will have access to a full scope of yarns, fabrics, trims and leathers, as well as programing on topics like sustainability and innovation.
The Denim Première Vision event scheduled for Nov. 24-25 in Berlin will still take place.
The fall is shaping up to be the time when event organizers feel safe about rescheduling conferences and trade shows that were postponed due to the coronavirus. Project Men’s rescheduled its July event in New York for Sept. 22-24. Additionally, the Sept. 1-3 Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone event remains on the calendar.
