Latest edition of Premiere Vision focuses on climate change

Première Vision was held in France, July 5 to 7, 2022. The physical fall/winter show marked industry-wide acceleration and cooperation in addressing climate impact in the fashion supply chain. At a time when global warming is already impacting supply — intense droughts have damaged cotton crops in both the US and India this year — the global textile fair made environmental performance a priority.

Meanwhile, designers applauded the global textiles fair’s major calendar change to July from September. They felt July was much better for sourcing since lead times are much longer now. Menswear designers, with little break from showing to starting the next collection, lauded the switch. They were able to combine winter ’23, spring ’24 and winter ’24 at the July show, which meant they did three seasons.

Despite being held between two airport strikes, with a city transport strike during its second day, 23,000 fashion professionals visited the show, up ten per cent versus February, with double that number logging on to the digital marketplace. There were almost 1,200 exhibitors, up by a third from the September 2021 show. Almost 70 per cent of design teams were international, with a marked return of US and South Korean visitors. Brands and exhibitors from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan remained absent due to quarantine rules.
