Health protection measures are once again preventing Paris’s trade shows from being held regularly. WSN’s joint event scheduled in early March has been cancelled, and only a reduced Première Classe show will be staged.
Paris’s Première Vision show will not be staged physically, but on February 15-19 it will hold a digital event featuring a revamped e-marketplace and several online debates with industry professionals and specialists.
Following a decision by the Italian government, trade shows Pitti Uomo, Pitti Bimbo and Pitti Filati will take place exclusively online on the Pitti Connect platform which will remain online until the start of April.
Pitti Connect took a novel turn with Herno CEO Claudio Marenzi presenting the brand’s latest sustainable ideas with Globe, before linking to Eataly founder Oscar Farinetti, who has launched eco-retail concept Pea Green.
The February session of Première Vision Paris once again won’t be staged physically, and will be replaced by a digital version scheduled on February 15-19, benefiting from several innovations in its e-marketplace.
Italy's benchmark textiles show, which had been one of the rare trade events to be staged physically in September, has announced that its February edition, showcasing the Spring/Summer 2022 collections, will go digital.
Playtime, the trade show dedicated to the world of children, has cancelled the winter editions due to be held in Paris, New York and Shanghai. Organiser Picaflor emphasised however that Playtime continues online.
The Denim PV show has started its Denim Digital Week, scheduled from November 30 to December 4, an online event presenting new materials for the Spring/Summer 2022 and featuring conferences on the latest trends.
Following Pitti Uomo’s decision to postpone, Milan-based trade shows Micam, Mipel, Homi, Lineapelle and TheOneMilano have also pushed their dates back by one month, and will all be staged on March 20-24.
WSN Développement, the Parisian fashion show’s organiser, has announced that the event's January edition will not take place. Who's Next and Impact will have their own space at the Première Classe show on March 5-7.
