Over 300 exhibitors from the world’s finest mills, textile design companies and accessories manufactures filled the single-floor venue. The show’s exhibitors were grouped into three universes: accessories, fabrics, and textile/surface designs, each with its own trend area showcasing collection highlights. A unique universe was dedicated to accessories, with twenty four manufacturers of buttons, buckles, trims, lace, labels, zips and jewelry components. For some of these accessory companies, the show was their first contact with the American market.
Attendance was at an all-time high, with 4,340 registered visits, a 7% increase over July, 2013. These figures include a 46% increase in visitors from foreign countries, with a high percentage from Canada. The huge offer also drew a 25.7% increase in visitors from California.
Première Vision New York and Indigo New York joined forces for another successful combined trade show on January 14 and 15, 2014. The Spring Summer '15 show offered the broadest selection of exhibitors in years. A wide array of buyers, from single-design firms to multi-billion dollar companies, filled New York's Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building. The season's offer included 261 exhibitors from the world's finest mills, accessory companies and textile design studios. Turnout was strong, with a total of 4,223 registered visits, an increase of 5% over January 2013. According to Guglielmo Olearo, Première Vision's International Exhibitions Director, "The combined show's continual growth reflects a dynamic North American market, as well as Premiere Vision's thorough understanding of the market, ability to anticipate the market's needs and ongoing promotional efforts."
On Monday July 22 and Tuesday July 23 at the Metropolitan Pavilion and the Altman Building, Première Vision New York and Indigo New York will give the full scoop on Fall Winter 1415. This joint edition is a first for the two shows, which have for the past several seasons been held together during the January edition. This additional step forward in the synergy between the two shows organised by Première Vision SA guarantees a unique and complementary offer of fabrics and textile designs for the fashion market.
