For 2 days, last July 16 and 17 Première Vision New York welcomed over 250 exhibitors and 3000 visitors from international brands, who came to discover and select new product developments and all the latest fabric and colour innovations to build their collections. Here are their thoughts on the show

 

“I find the trend tasting seminars very valuable as I can apply this information into our product development. It helps a lot as a confirmation of our collection’s direction”
Kalam Han, Senior Designer – MARK’S

 

“This show got me started 30 years ago. This is the best place to start a business, it really kicked my career”
Salvatore Sicuro, CEO – ATELIER SICURO

 

“This is a great show to get inspired and look for what’s new”
Nicholas Hartley, Material innovation and Development – PATAGONIA

 

“ I like to come to PV New York due to its trend setting trajectory. Timewise, it’s also extremely convenient. This is a great show to research trends, innovative materials, and get inspired. It is also a great way to connect with Italian, Japanese and Italian mills”
Marie Saint Pierre, CEO – MAISON MARIE SAINT PIERRE

 

“We have been coming to PV for over 20 years now both Paris and New York. The show kicks off the season, it is a great jumpstart for us”
Debra Polanco, Creative Director – SANCTUARY CLOTHING

 

“There are so many smart things that I get out of the show. It is a great place to explore opportunity and to create more eco friendly garments and accessories. Showcasing people who are doing it right offers a great source of inspiration and amazing global contact opportunities”
Janine Donen, CEO – BRILLIANT DESIGNS

 

“PV offers a great platform to cultivate existing relationships, find innovative fabrics and continue our research regarding sustainable materials, AND that is the biggest conversation we are having with our teams. The mills we find here are aligned with our company values”
Halley, Global Director of fabric and trim – CHAMPION

 

“ I find the seminars very inspirational. I always make recaps that I share globally through our company intranet. Our biggest challenge as a company is to be able to change our mindset overcoming the fear of losing revenue”
Meg Winkler, Associate Director Merchandising – ESQUEL GROUP

 

“What makes PV so unique is that you find everything under one roof”
Aris Lallas, Senior Vice President design – WHITE HOUSE, BLACK MARKET
