Première Vision continues to grow. Despite the economic decline in Europe, exhibitor figures are up for the second edition of 2012 (Wednesday 19 to Friday 21 September 2012 ). With three months still to go, 717 companies are confirmed to take part in the World’s Premier Fabric Show, topping the September 2011 total. Remarkably all the Première Vision SA shows are displaying the same upward trend: Expofil, 51 exhibitors, Indigo, 190 exhibitors, ModAmont, 295 exhibitors.
The weavers, who will be presenting their collections for autumn winter 2013-14, now count 32 new exhibitors from all style universes among their ranks. Of particular note is the return of Tejidos Royo, a major denim specialist from Spain, after an absence of several sessions. Like all the companies exhibiting at Première Vision, newcomers were admitted by decision of the Selection Committee. The committee is comprised of international experts and weavers, who weigh each application according to very stringent criteria taking into account each company’s creativity, the quality of their services and their financial viability.
