The big change for trade-show visitors headed to the Porte de Versailles in January is the new show format for WSN Developpement’s salons.

Scheduled to run Jan. 21 to 24, the Who’s Next, Premiere Classe, Mess Around and Prêt-à-Porter Paris salons for the first time will converge under one roof, under the Who’s Next prêt-à-porter Paris banner, covering 120,000 square feet of total exhibition space, with 2,500 apparel and accessories brands.

In terms of zones, Le Cube will offer leather goods, while a new section, Mr. Brown, will house men’s wear, and women’s and men’s urban fashion and streetwear, each spanning clothing, footwear and accessories. In May, WSN Developpement acquired 50 percent of Mess Around, which is dedicated to footwear.

A free personal shopper service is available to help buyers get around.

Set to run Jan. 20 to 24 at Paris Nord Villepinte, Paris design fair Maison & Objet will inaugurate its Retail Space in Hall B, where visitors can get tips on optimizing store design.

The results of a study on the French public’s buying habits and perceptions of innerwear brands, conducted by Kantar for the Salon International de la Lingerie, will be presented at a conference during the next edition of SIL, meanwhile, set to run Jan. 21 to 23 at the Porte de Versailles. The lingerie show has also lined up a Lifestyle Area with a range of free services, lije a makeup atelier by Makeup For Ever and massages by students from a local massage school.

Paris Capital de la Création shuttle buses will operate between Paris airports and the city’s main train stations and participating salons.

In February, textile fair Première Vision (Feb. 14 to 16) will present the first edition of its new annual congress, PV Global Meetings, aimed at bringing around 400 fashion and textile decision-makers together for one day to exchange ideas and discuss key topics in themed seminars and workshops.
