Maison d’Exceptions

High creativity experimental zone, Hall 3

With MAISON D’EXCEPTIONS project, the joint goal of Première Vision is to stimulate creative excellence by giving fashion brands and designers – looking for unique products and specific expertise – the opportunity to discover craftsmen and ateliers focused on artisanal techniques or technological innovations.
Technical innovation, handcrafts and artisanal workmanship are real tools in achieving creativity and differentiation, and are thus of strategic economic and commercial importance for today’s fashion industry.
Since 2011, with a gathering that takes place once a year in Paris as part of the Première Vision fair, MAISON D’EXCEPTIONS honours international craftsmanship, bringing together a selection of workshops and companies whose mission is to support the development of ancestral, folk or contemporary techniques.

Expand your field of creativity

In February 2019, some 25 selected artisans -including 6 new- will reveal their rare and cutting-edge know-how in textiles, leather and accessories. More than ever these ateliers are focused on innovation, to propose exclusive, creative and unique or custom-made products.
