Smart Creation

Eco-responsible & tech innovations positioned at the heart of each Première Vision Paris edition

Sustainability and technology : 2 key subjects around which the Première Vision group has been positioning itself for several years now, to support the creative fashion industry as it evolves.

As early as 2015, it launched the Smart Creation study and information platform to promote its exhibitors’ responsible approaches and showcase a new generation of values. This platform can be found online on the Première Vision website, and has long had a dedicated space, the Smart Creation Area, at the September editions of Première Vision Paris.

At the same time, the Wearable Lab, launched in 2017 at the February editions, explored innovations driven by the advent of new technologies and digitalization to promote connected and intelligent fashions.

NEW – From February 2020, the two spaces merge and become a unique Smart Creation Area, to be discovered at each edition, in February and September.

An invitation to discover the eco-responsible and technological innovations that are already industrially developed and ready to be used in the fashions of today and tomorrow. This is a strong and fundamental development to meet the needs of the international fashion sector’s players – industrial exhibitors and fashion and accessory brands.

Innovation infusing all the various sectors of Premiere Vision Paris

This responsible-creation approach starts right from the so-called creation phase, as 80% of a product’s environmental impact is determined in its design stage. All the upstream sectors of creative fashion are thus concerned. And because innovative players are also located in other areas of the show, Première Vision Paris is offering a trail of 160 exhibitors identified as having an exemplary responsible approach by the Première Vision teams – the result of in-depth analysis over the last few years.

The exhibitors are selected according to three criteria (all validated by certifications):

  • The company: Social and environmental responsibility (energy, water, waste management, as well as HR and corporate ethics).,
  • Its product transformation processes: Traceability, dyeing and finishing,
  • Raw material sourcing: Fabric, Leather, Accessories: Recycled / Regenerated / Organic, Alternative materials : Biopolymers/ New fibres and yarns
