Eco commitment

Building the future of fashion together

To combat the great climate challenges of our times, the fashion industry is mobilized, innovative, inventive and reinventing itself, seeking to reduce its environmental footprint through manufacturing and sourcing processes that integrate circularity and sustainability. The commitment of key actors in the sector combined with changes in consumption habits, are driving the creation of tangible solutions to produce a more ethical and more responsible type of fashion.

Since 2015, Première Vision has been accompanying these changes with its Smart Creation range, a series of initiatives combined with the creation of informative content all year round to guide your sourcing towards greater eco-responsibility. Season after season, the eco-responsible offer of the exhibitors at our shows continues to grow with new eco-designed product developments and technical innovations. A cutting-edge offer highlighted at each new edition of Première Vision Paris.

The Smart Creation Area

In February and July, each new edition of the Première Vision Paris show offers a space entirely dedicated to start-ups and companies offering innovative products, solutions and services to take fashion closer to a responsible and less polluting future.

In this area, you will find around 30 exhibitors committed to and expert in Fashion Tech, selected by Première Vision, in line with our determination to accompany your responsible sourcing.

A bespoke visitor circuit

Prepare your ethical sourcing before the show thanks to our visitor circuits designed to simplify your search for certified suppliers, manufacturers and experts offering the solutions you need for your future collections of sustainable fashion. You can discover these circuits online a few weeks before the show.

Once at the show, and also on the Première Vision Marketplace, you can easily identify the product developments corresponding to respectful environmental criteria thanks to the eco-responsible performance codes specially developed by Première Vision.
