Learn more about the universes

Première Vision Paris presents a complete offer delivered by spinners, weavers, accessory manufacturers, textile design studios, tanners and garment makers. The exhibitors are workshops, small and medium-sized businesses, and large industrial groups.

The selection criteria for exhibiting guarantee the presence of the best creative fashion companies and their synergy.

All are selected by a committee of international professionals. Several criteria, identical for each profession, are taken into account: creativity and quality of the collections, ability to renew to offer new developments each season, know-how, financial reliability, production capacity… The selection committee also makes sure that the company wishing to exhibit will fit in coherently with the other participants.

In total, for three days, about 1,200 professionals will exhibit at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, gathered in five halls.

Coming from more than 50 countries, the exhibitors present their latest developments with strong creativity.

Première Vision’s fashion information is part of its DNA

The challenge is to translate what fashion will be – its colors, its materials, its touch… – 18 months before it is visible to everyone in the stores, in the form of finished products.

To achieve this goal, a dedicated internal team works in synergy with fifteen or so international professionals.

This creative union gives birth to a panoramic vision of all the professions that make up fashion and which will enable the development of fashion information according to a unique methodology.

Each season, the Première Vision fashion team builds the main orientations and trends (colors, materials, etc.) with international experts, before sharing them with the entire creative chain (manufacturers, buyers, stylists, media, etc.) in the form of information seminars, trend spaces – forums – at the show, or online.

Sustainability and technology

2 key subjects on which the Première Vision Group has been positioning itself for several years now to accompany the creative fashion industry in its transformation.

In 2015, it launched the Smart Creation study and information platform in order to promote the responsible approaches of its exhibitors and highlight a new generation of values.

At the same time, the Wearable Lab, launched in 2017 for the February editions, explored the innovations driven by the advent of new technologies and digitalization for a connected and intelligent fashion.

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

An invitation to discover the new eco-responsible and technological innovations that are already industrialized and exploitable, which are the fashion of today and will be the fashion of tomorrow. A strong and necessary evolution to meet the needs of international fashion industry players – industrial exhibitors and fashion and accessories brands.

Follow all the news from eco-responsible players and listen to our Smart Creation podcast

Eco-responsibility infuses the different professions of Première Vision Paris

This logic of responsible creation applies from the so-called creation phase because 80% of the environmental impact of a product is at stake from its design.

All the upstream creative fashion sectors are thus concerned. And because the actors who innovate can also be located in other areas of the show, Première Vision Paris offers a trail that brings together exhibitors identified as having an exemplary responsible approach by the Première Vision teams – the result of in-depth work carried out over several years.

Discover our selection of eco-responsible yarns, fabrics, leathers, accessories and alternative materials.

The IFM Première Vision Chair: taking the measure of creative fashion.

In 2016, the group created the IFM Première Vision Chair with the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM), with the mission of analyzing the evolution of the activity of companies producing high value-added materials.

Each year, it publishes the Première Vision-IFM Barometer, which provides information on economic trends in the creative fashion sector based on an observation and evaluation index of the activity of the world’s creative industries (fabrics and leathers).

It is established in comparison with the reference index of world production of fabrics and leathers, all market levels combined, published by the United Nations.

The studies carried out by the IFM’s Economic Observatory within the framework of the Chair give rise to dedicated seminars on Première Vision Paris.

Each edition, Première Vision Paris fully plays its role as a catalyst for the creative fashion industry with a cutting-edge program

Conferences, digital talks, to better anticipate the future challenges of the sector and its mutations…exhibitions, ceremonies, cocktails...to get inspired and share moments of relaxation with other industry players.

Throughout the year, Première Vision offers you inspiring content to decode the sector and the season in the Première Vision Magazine: Trends, eco-responsibility, show news, markets and know-how…

The PV Awards 2013 winners:

The Grand Jury Prize : Komatsu Seiren (Japon)

Komatsu Seiren won the Grand Prize with an amazing “sandwich” fabric: a deep green polyurethane foam inserted between two printed fabrics, both of which are woollen imposters. One looks like a men’s herringbone, the other looks like a tartan dressed up with a bright blue colour. The unexpectedness of this fabric lies in its behaviour. Thanks to the compressible foam, the fabric remembers an impression for just a few minutes, before slowly returning to its initial shape. The well-rounded fabric takes on volumes of variable dimensions, marries shapes and softly accompanies motion.

The Innovation Prize : Inseta (Italie)

Inseta proposes a new generation silk, with a bouncy bonding, comprised of two perfectly smooth and slippery pure silks. With a black back and a green face, it’s quite sophisticated looking, with a surprisingly smooth handle and very modern way of moving. This assembly reveals a muscular suppleness that is almost rubbery, and completely springy.

The Handle Prize : Luigi Colombo (Italie)

This fabric by Luigi Colombo is most importantly the meeting of warm nobility and light thickness. It’s the subtle marriage of a classically elegant camelhair broadcloth and a resolutely technical polyurethane foam. It’s a fabric that brings together the performance universe and citified elegance. New creative and design possibilities open up thanks to its warm and foamy handle, with its soft firmness.

The Imagination Prize : H.O.H. (Autriche)

H.O.H. presents a very modern and quite couture guipure, a balance of tradition and modernity. Starting with cut-out tires, the original materials are given a new dimension, and hand assembled. To create this project H.O.H. partnered with an Italian workshop specialised in artistic recycling, to create a link between art, craft and industry. One of the house’s historic patterns, which is traditionally developed for embroideries, was transposed onto the material thanks to the original, hand-made cut/sewn assembly process, which made possible this fanciful and unexpected meeting between eco-friendliness and haute couture.

The first step in the partnership is to put the 10 Fashion finalists and the 10 Accessories finalists chosen by the Festival Jury in contact with the exhibitors who will supply them with the raw materials. Yarns, fabrics, accessories, and manufacturing … All these precious resources help the finalists produce the collections they will present at the Festival in the spring.

To this end, the finalists are invited to the February edition of Première Vision Paris, where they benefit from privileged access to exhibitors from around the world.

Following the results announced by the Hyères Festival jury, the winner of the Première Vision Grand Prix du Jury is awarded €20,000.

The 33rd Hyères Festival of Fashion and Photography took place at Villa Noailles from 26 to 30 April 2018. The young designers duo Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh won the Grand Prix du jury première Vision 2018.

The duo offers a joyous homage to the innate style of the Caribbean, celebrating the ability of unknown persons to embellish their daily lives by repurposing found elements. This collection consists of a three dimensional mix of items from a classic men’s wardrobe, accompanied by sportswear and antiquated details one imagines picked up on a beach.

The jury was chaired by the designer Haider Ackermann. At his side:

  • Vanessa Schindler, creator and winner of the 2017 Première Vision Award
  •  Tilda Swinton, actress

The prize comes with a 15,000-euro grant, which Première Vision presented alongside Jury President Bertrand Guyon, Design Director of Schiaparelli.

With Urethane pool, chapitre 2 Vanessa schindler strives to find an alternative to the classic design and construction of clothing. She draws inspiration from architecture and interior decoration, composing each silhouette in her collection as though she were arranging a unique interior with contrasting materials, vegetation, room to move… and she uses a material that is unexpected in her field: urethane, a liquid polymer.
With her womenswear collection entitled Urethane, Chapitre 2 she creates an interplay of textures and transparency by laying urethane over tulle and fine netting. Besides their technical performance, the silhouettes are elegant and luxurious. The collection centres on long dresses and negligees that spring to life as the light catches them.

The winner of the 2016 Grand Jury Prize Première Vision at the 31st edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères is Wataru Tominaga.

This year Julien Dossena, Artistic Director of Paco Rabanne, presided over the Jury.

The boldness, graphic power and strong visual impact of Wataru Tominaga’s collection, enriched by his research into fabrics and techniques, unanimously won over the festival jury. This research was evident in a collection reaching beyond masculine/feminine identities to create a positive dynamic. Inspired by emancipated fringe groups such as hippies or nerds, Wataru Tominaga seeks to break down stereotypes. With his collection of overstitched pleats, wide flocked vinyl stripes and juxtapositions of bright colours, the Japanese designer expresses his goal of creating a new genre, one likely to encourage a different vision of men’s ready to wear.

During the 30th edition of the Festival at Hyères, La Maison Chanel was the guest of honor and the director karl Lagerferld the artistic director.

The Franco-German designer Annelie Schubert has been awarded with the Grand Jury Prize Première Vision thanks to her womenswear collection named Aprons.

It was produced with the support of from the following Première Vision Fabrics weavers: Jakob Schlaepfer, Luxury Jersey, Styletex and Teseo. With subtle details and discreet constructions, the designer presents a true silhouette, strong and clear. The relationship between the fabrics and colours is incredible. Annelie Schubert has taste and elegance. She has an endearing personality and is very sensitive, unpretentious, down to earth and fresh.

The Jury, presided over by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon (creative directors of Kenzo), reward the winner of the Première Vision Grand Jury Prize, Kenta Matsushige, a young Japonese designer, for his collection named “Hinabi”. He installed his collection in a bucolic setting, where “[it] will have more presence than lost in a city” and in opposition to miyabin urban beauty”.

Thanks to an affirmed creative style, Finnish designer Satu Maaranen won the Première Vision Grand Jury Prize 2013, presided over by jury president Felipe Oliveira Baptista, designer and artistic director of Lacoste, Paris.

“Can one dress oneself in nature? Is it possible to design a collection that takes the surrounding landscape into account?” These are some of the questions raised by the Finnish prize-winner, a graduate of Helsinki’s Aalto University, in her women’s collection Garment in Landscape, inspired by Land Art, military prints and 1960s haute couture.
This collection was produced with the support of: Première Vision Paris, Taroni, Albert Guegain Broderies, Ventures, Schoeller, Warp & Weft, Sfate et Combier, Puntoseta, Made in France, Atelier Style Couture, L’Atelier d’Ariane, Lazar Cuckovic Couture, FIM. Crystals provided by: SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

Festival d’Hyères 2012

The jury, presided over by Yohji Yamamoto, awarded the Grand Jury Prize Première Vision 2012 to Ragne Kikas, a young Estonian designer based in Hamburg, Germany. Ragne Kikas also won the Public Prize of the City of Hyères.
Selected from among ten finalists, Ragne Kikas offers her vision of the radical, with a collection inspired by 15th and 16th century armour, whose inflexible and angular shapes she translated into knits, her preferred medium.

Each silhouette must be a new sculptural enigma, at once obvious and impenetrable. The collection was produced with the support of Première Vision Paris and the following exhibitors: Close to Clothes, Eclair Prym Belgium S.A., and Tearfil Textile Yarns.

French designer Céline Méteil won the the Grand Jury Prize Première Vision 2011, one of two prizes attributed in the Fashion Competition of the prestigious International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyères, with a jury presided over by Raf Simons,

Selected from among ten finalists, Céline Méteil created a collection of airy and structured origami-dresses made from jaconas. This stiff and transparent cotton plain weave is ordinarily employed to create a three-dimensional muslin prototype of a garment. Her highly architectural clothing entertains a dialogue with the body, building on layers of transparency and lace and shaped in subtle balance with fluid knits.
Baptised “Plié-Backstage”, the collection was produced with the support of Première Vision Paris exhibitors: Sophie Hallette, Marioboselli Yarns & Jersey and TESJ, and Close to Clothes.
Céline Méteil also won the Public Prize.
