On January 17 & 18, Première Vision New York moves to a new venue, Tribeca 360, and takes one more step towards sustainable fashion. For the first time, the show will be taking part in the ‘a better way’ programme, designed to ensure greater visibility for the sustainable initiatives of the Première Vision exhibitors.
‘a better way’, the sustainable programme for more committed sourcing
As the sustainable offer of the Première Vision exhibitors keeps growing and becomes more complex season after season, the PV team has developed ‘a better way’, a programme to decode this offer and facilitate your sourcing. This initiative, designed with the help of independent experts, is based on a survey system submitted to the exhibitors as well as on a series of internationally recognised certifications, programmes and labels, including ZDHC , GOTS , FSC® and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
Launched in July 2023 during the Première Vision Paris show, ‘a better way’ takes the form of a new visual display on the stands of the voluntary exhibitors involved in the initiative. This pictogram-based programme relies on 5 criteria: social initiatives, impact of production sites, traceability, product/process compositions and sustainability and end-of-life of the finished product.
This multi-criteria approach, without ranking or rating, aims to qualify the level of sustainability of each exhibitor on these 5 major themes. This makes it easier for visitors to find suppliers who match their concerns and commitments.
New! The Première Vision New York exhibitors join the ‘a better way’ programme
As part of an ever more virtuous approach and to highlight eco-design and sustainable fashion, Première Vision New York will participate for the first time in the ‘a better way’ programme for its January 2024 edition.
For each criterion, find out which exhibitors are participating in the programme:

Through its participation in this new programme, Première Vision New York wishes to provide you with the keys to responsible sourcing, and to offer you the utmost transparency regarding the sustainable commitments of its exhibitors.
