In hall 6, the ‘Keeping it incomparable’ section will present the color palette for Spring/Summer 2023, and a wide range of textures and performance fabrics.
Two zones for “creative immersion” in Spring/Summer 2023 are also planned in halls 4 and 5. PV Digital Show participants will be able to explore the unique 3D Forum, showcasing around 50 items iconic chosen by Premier Vision.
The seminars at the Premiere Vision show last September were held strictly online.

Among them are several trending forums and Pitch Innovation conferences, as well as roundtable debates on industry news, sustainability, the metaverse, and new generations of consumers.
The French Fashion Institute will host a talk on the new global geography of textile sourcing, while CELC, the European Federation of Linen and Hemp, will present its traceability innovations.
