A lot of news regarding French trade shows emerged at two events last week: a trend seminar featuring Eurovet’s fall 2013 Interfilière textiles fair and a summer 2012 forecast for the Mode City intimates and swimwear show, and a presentation titled “Global Fashion Trends: The Insider View From Paris.”
Each event was staged May 16, at one venue — the business lounge at 7 West 34th Street, where Eurovet’s marketing visitor director Sandrine Dervin outlined key trends, and a soiree at the French Consulate in Manhattan, where speakers included Xavier Clergerie, general manager of WSN, a unit of Comexposium which acquired Sodes this month. The acquisition combines the Who’s Next and Premiere Classe fairs with five venues formerly run by Sodes: Prêt à Porter Paris, Atmosphere’s, The Box, LivingRoom and The Train.
