The predominant influence of sport on fashion will be highlighted with an extensive, transversal Sport & Tech itinerary, and a dedicated forum. An enlarged Smart Creation Area (formerly the Smart Square) will have 30 new exhibitors. This edition, Brazil will return and new countries (Romania, Mexico) will arrive for an ever more expanding and creative Première Vision Designs offer.
Eco-responsibility will be playing a larger role at PV Paris, with a Smart Creation Area covering more than 1,200 square metre and the presentation of the report of a study conducted jointly with the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM). An emphasis will be on creativity through various key highlights, including the 11th edition of the PV Awards, a showcase dedicated to Christoph Rumpf (winner of the 34th Hyères Festival), the TexSelect fabric design competition, and more.
Conferences will be relocated to the heart of the PV show, with 2 distinct new spaces: the Fashion Talks Area in Hall 6 for fashion conferences and the Innovation Talks Area in Hall 3.
