Première Vision Sao Paulo aims to offer the complete package. The Paris-based trade fair organizer will add a manufacturing component to the May 12-13, 2015 Brazil show to meet the needs of the entire garment supply chain. The two-day event will be a one-stop shop for local and international brands seeking the latest in sportswear, denim, trims and more.
Show manager Luana Cloper said the goal of including fashion textile manufacturing companies is to “offer an integrated chain services to our visitors, enabling the entire collection is resolved here, from the inspiration and the raw materials to the construction of the piece.” Manufacturing companies will be vetted by a selection committee, which Cloper said is to ensure exhibitors meet and uphold Première Vision’s standard of quality.
The last Première Vision Sao Paulo, held Nov. 4-5, attracted 5,975 qualified visitors. Attendees took part in seminars led by trend and textile experts and in a weekend design workshop that resulted in an “Art of Denim” exhibition located in the show’s denim hall.
