The show will also welcome 27 new exhibitors wishing to unveil their latest collections for the first time at Première Vision Preview New York.
This comment made by Newlife™ (Miroglio Group) seems to reflect the general feeling of this last edition.
Over the span of two days, business meetings with designers and buyers from fashion’s top houses lead to an energetic and intense session appreciated by all the exhibitors.
Thus, British Millerian was pleased to see a “good cross section” of well-established and emerging designers. This view was shared by Can Tekstil, who had the chance to meet with high-profile companies and had one of its best shows.
Visitors from all over North America were especially impressed by the offer they found. Keanan Duffty, Designer for Slinky Vagabond Inc. said that “Premiere Vision NY provides an excellent overview of global fabric trends”.
An obvious enthusiasm from both visitors and exhibitors that confirms the inescapable position of Premiere Vision Preview New York.
For the second year running, Première Vision introduced the winner of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography Première Vision Prize, Ragne Kikas. The young Estonian designer showcased outfits from her knitwear collection “Dress Code Defensive” directly inspired by 15th and 16th Century suits of armour
During 2 days, Première Vision Preview New York attendees also had the chance to discover the other prize-winning designs from the Hyères festival in a space specially dedicated to their works.
A nice opportunity for these young talents to meet with the fashion industry
Only during the show, Ragne Kikas will present the knitwear collection “Dress Code Defensive” inspired by 15th and 16th Century suits of armour. Captivated by the embellishments, shapes and silhouettes of original armour pieces she translates them into her knitted garments. Ragne Kikas pairs a masculine topic with feminine attributes and designs a collection for a body-conscious, smart and independent woman. She uses cable stitch, hand knitted pleats or smocking to give the knitted items their angular shape.
You will have also the opportunity to discover the other prize-winning designs from the Hyères festival.
The young Estonian designer based in Hamburg (Germany) is the winner of the Première Vision Prize attributed in the Fashion Competition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography. Ragne Kikas has also been rewarded with the Public Prize of the City of Hyères. This is the second year in a row that Première Vision, the World’s Premier Fabric Show, has partnered with the Hyères Festival and sponsored one of its prizes, in the amount of 10,000 euros. But the Première Vision Prize goes beyond the awarding of the prize money to the winning young designer.
Since 2011, Première Vision has lent its name to one of the prizes awarded during the Fashion Competition held yearly at Hyères since 1986, which has led to the discovery of some of today's most established fashion designers, including Viktor & Rolf, Gaspard Yurkievich, Felipe Oliveira Baptista and Anthony Vaccarello.
The winner receives a 10,000 euro prize and material support from Première Vision.
The first, essential step of the partnership with Première Vision is putting the 10 finalists chosen by the 2012 jury, presided over by Yohji Yamamoto, in contact with those exhibitors at Première Vision, Expofil and ModAmont who have offered to support the young designers by providing them with supplies to produce the collections.
The PV Awards were created in 2009 by Première Vision to highlight, recognize and reward textile excellence. Every year the first stage for the prestigious jury is to select the most outstanding creations of the Première Vision weavers from among the fabrics chosen by the Fashion Team for the show’s forums. During Première Vision in Paris, the jury meets again to choose the winners in each of the 4 categories.
At the 2011 PV Awards, the jury, presided over by French designer Roland Mouret, awarded the Grand Jury Prize to EUROMAGLIA, the Handle Prize to TORAY JAPAN, the Innovation Prize to FEDERICO ASPESI and the Imagination Prize to FORSTER WILLI.
Discover those exceptional fabrics at the show in the PV Awards area in the Altman Building.
In this area the visitors can also discover the spring summer 13 Color Card and take a break on sofas produced by the European specialist of inflatable furniture BubblePro.
Indeed, once a year - for the presentation of the Spring Summer collections Indigo and Première Vision Preview New York are held at the same time and place.

This season, to move even closer into step with market evolutions and product developments, Première Vision created 4 new performance codes.
In the overall trend towards organic and eco-friendly products:
organic: a fabric with a majority of certified-organic natural fibres (cotton, wool, silk, linen).
recycled: a fabric with a majority of recycled fibres, either natural or synthetic.
eco-friendly finishing: to signal a fabric made using dyes and/or finishing treatments meeting the strictest international standards (chemical and energy impact, water resources).
And a new performance code tied to the evolution of technologies:
garment washable: describing a textile – whatever its composition - designed to stand up to dyes, washings and wash-out treatments in already manufactured clothing items.
You can find the Performance Codes indicated on the fabrics presented in the Fabric Forum.
How do you find the suppliers you're looking for with all the exhibitors at the show? Since 2006, Première Vision has been grouping weavers into 4 style universes to facilitate your visit and help you get started building your collections. And at Première Vision Preview New York, the roughly 100 exhibitors are organized in the same unique way.
The Distinction universe targets tailored, structured fashions for the city and business, and men's or women's casual chic. It brings together weavers specialized in wool, cotton or blends for suitings or coats, as well as companies proposing linings and city shirtings. The Seduction universe is the place to find fancy products and fabrics targeting fluid cuts for everyday or special occasions. This style universe includes silkies, jacquards, lace, embroidery and ribbon, in addition to prints, fluid knits, fancy tweeds and fake furs. Head to the Relax universe to find casualwear, sportswear and jeanswear collections. Here are comfortable cottons and synthetics, denims and corduroys, color wovens, knits and prints for relaxed shirtings, dresses and tops. The Pulsation universe groups together innovative wovens and knits, functional fabrics for extreme sports, lingerie and everyday-wear. And don't forget all the makers of buttons, labels, zips, feathers and the other indispensable accessories that round out the fabric offer.
The list of exhibitors for the January show will be available soon!
In a preview showing, The Première Vision color range inspires Première Vision Preview New York with the energy of the Spring Summer I2 color trends.
The story begins when, six months before the session to come, Première Vision gathers some 20 international experts for one of its meeting.
In the course of electrifying discussions, bits of string and pieces of paper, wrinkled paper or tinted plastic convey the subtlety of a tone. First impressions, first impulsions and then the time has already come to choose. A moment to take stock of the essentials; decide between matt and shine; structure the range itself.
From all this variety of cultures, a final project emerges that always has everyone's close support. The tiny colored morsels head off to the printer where, after hours of adjustment, they are transcribed into large numbered paper formats.
The color range is ready and is first presented to the exhibitors and then available for sale at the show in NYC before the worldwide presentation in Paris. It is pointless to look for the Première Vision color range in other color cards; you will never find it exactly as it is.
For each show, the Première Vision fashion team organizes forecasting seminars around the world for buyers, designers and clothing brands.
Six months before the Première Vision show several meetings are organized with fashion professionals and experts from the leading textile countries to establish the fabric directions and color range for the new season.
This fashion information is then communicated to the weavers and later adjusted for buyers depending on the actual textiles presented here in New York. Manhattan kicks off the fashion tour. The Trend Tasting presentation include a film inspired by emerging and influential trends plus a multimedia presentation help to decrypt the main fashion orientations and unveil the predominant textile directions.
The next stop on the map is Sao Paulo with a special Brazil seminar. Then back to Paris where the Première Vision show allows our fashion team to refine the seminars thanks to the forums and the daily Bests surveys. In the end, the fashion seminar has become a forecasting tool for fashion professionals and a statistical reflection of buying trends by market.
Reinforced and enriched, the gathered fashion information is then retransmitted to the public in Moscow, Tokyo and Beijing.
