PARIS — The second phase of the economic crisis is weighing on the textile industry as it heads into the next edition of the influential Première Vision trade fair, with executives eyeing a less dramatic but potentially longer downturn.
Despite an encouraging start to the year for Europe’s textile industry, the future remains foggy in the eyes of Première Vision chief executive officer Philippe Pasquet. As consumer confidence waivers, he expects firms will continue to see slow growth in the coming months, strengthened by demand from emerging markets.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
