With each of its campaigns, Première Vision focuses on the talents who embody creativity.
Last September, Première Vision Paris paid tribute to young designers and fashion students.
For the upcoming Première Vision New York and Première Vision Istanbul shows, “locals” who represent their own creative culture will take center stage.
For its February 2016 edition, the show’s organizers wanted to turn the spotlight on the designers and creatives who work on the upstream side of the industry.
They are the weavers, tanners, furriers, accessory manufacturers, knitters and creative and textile design studios that dream up, invent and create the collections that bring the magic of fashion to life.
They are the rarely seen and heard talents within the industry.
… And yet, as the tagline states: “Without them fashion would not be nearly as inspired.”

The Woolmark Company today gathers some 23,000 wool producers under a brand that is now a synonym for textile quality. Its world famous logo celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014.”We promote the work of our partners, while also supporting wool research and innovation, from yarn to finished product,” explains Christina del Gobbo. The Wool Lab, the trend books created each season by this non-profit organisation, provide a privileged vantage point to spot new trends in how wool is used, especially merino wool. “The breathable and insulating properties, resistance and natural elasticity of the new merino wool fabrics make it a perfect material for sportswear and outdoorwear,” continues the association’s country manager for France, emphasizing a renewed interest in summer-version wools in ready-to-wear.
