Organizers of Première Vision New York, which runs Jan. 16 and 17 at Pier 94, said sustainability and creativity are the central themes of its winter edition. This year, the event showcases 254 exhibitors across the fabric, leather, textile design and accessories sectors.
Fabric behaviors this season will be “malleable, supple and runny,” while accessories will “play on shine,” according to Julie Greux, the new deputy fashion director of Première Vision. Delicacy is an apparent theme this year, as willowy patterns and softened structures are noted as prevailing trends. Also, a new color range will be presented at the event, which will tie in key seasonal trends across ready-to-wear, accessories, leather goods, shoes and fashion jewelry materials. Première Vision will also showcase local fashion-manufacturing solutions representative of its CFDA, Fashion Manufacturing Initiative program and New York City Economic Development Corp. partnership. The collaboration seeks to highlight local solutions at the show that “nurture, elevate and preserve garment production” in New York.
