Spring-Summer 2016 trends at 8 fashion information areas during the Première Vision Fabrics

Created simultaneously with the show itself, the fashion information proposed by Première Vision Fabrics is by now the industry reference for the entire fashion sector. Through a range of different areas, fashion seminars and now an internet platform, the show's fashion information is today an integral part of its success.

At the world's premier fabric show, fashion information, elaborated in dedicated forums, provides seasonal directions and inspiration in terms of colours and fabrics via a selection of the most creative and innovative products and developments proposed by exhibitor-weavers. A rigorous selection of samples and rich, incisive information, developed early in the season by the Première Vision fashion team.

Over the years both the forums and the organisation of fashion information have evolved in order to adapted to changes in the industry and to address the changing needs and behaviours of buyers and designers.

7 fashion forums now present the season's major directions. These are complementary areas, both informational and informative areas, organised by product-destination or by specialised market. There is also information on the website, updated daily during the show and after.


This presents the essential fashion directions along with the key fabrics and colours most representative of the season. It brings the fabric selections and the season's Film together in one place, and creates a truly exciting display and event at the heart of the show.

This season, an entirely new kind of film is being shown in The Forum. An original concept that breaks with the films previously shows, both in terms of its scenario and in its many messages. At the heart of a play on appearance / disappearance lies a story of twins: never antagonistic, always likeable, in all likelihood fake or deceptively similar ... It's all a matter of perception, perspective, relevance, subtle differences and feel!

Two forums showcase an offer by market and products at the show.

  1. The Tops & Shirts Forum (Northern left side of Hall 5): an area dedicated to tops and small items, with a selection of spring summer 16 fabrics for shirts, blouses, tunics, dresses, T-shirts, polos and under-garments.

  2. The Outer & Over Forum (Northern part of Hall 6): a selection of spring summer 16 fabrics for outer-layer garments: jackets, suits, women's suits, trousers, jeans, coats, parkas, blousons and other items.


3 specific focus areas meet the needs of specialised markets and showcase the offer at the show.

  1. The Evening Focus Forum (Southern end of Hall 5): provides answers for evening and dressy items, echoing the luxury market and the emergence of new cocktail markets, with silky, lace, embroidery, and ribbon products, plain or with exceptional decoration.

  2. The Tech Focus Forum: spotlights highly technical innovations and developments for the sport, outdoor, activewear, swimwear and workwear markets,

  3. The Knitwear Focus Forum (Hall 6, at Knitwear Solutions): exclusive seasonal developments and new outlooks for knits.


To better address diffusion markets and markets targeting immediacy, this presents Première Vision's style outlook, and a selection of fabrics, to help create the right fashion silhouettes for the women's, men's and casual markets.


On the Premiere Vision website, in the «Fashion Live» section, in the section dedicated to Spring-Summer 2016 at Première Vision Fabrics, find the exhibitors' very latest creations, filmed and uploaded continuously from the show's studios, starting the first day of the show and during all three days.

The SS16 fabrics are freely forthright, gleefully championing their creative commitment with a seductive playfulness.

A highly tactile, poetic and sensual season, full of freshness and energy - a season to savour with relish. It invites fashion to make light of convention, encourages fake-lookalikes to combat uniformity, entices images to change, rawness to seek sophistication, sports to be dabbled in, menswear and casualwear to grow suppler, and silhouettes to bloom with dazzling decoration.
