Premier Vision and Indigo, Paris 12th Feb 2010

The 'don't pull threads out' or 'cut chunks' from the samples signs!!
We visited Premier Vision a show of fabric swatches being sold to buyers from the different fashion houses to use in their S/S 2011 collections. It was so big and overwhelming, there were lots of different sections; dividing up the different materials and also putting them into sections of how they would be used.
The part I enjoyed most was Indigo, the area with 'textile design and creation.' In this part there were lots of digital prints and floral was a very popular theme running through the show. The University stalls were probably the most interesting as they were not as commercial as some of the other stalls and mixed disciplines more than others.

The Mod Amount area was full of stalls with buttons, trimmings and zips, all created for the S/S 2011 garments.
As students we were often told to not touch the samples as we wouldn't be buying them and we were not allowed to look at some if the button books for some reason! The companies generally don't like the Friday as it is the student day and they wont make as much money as they would on the other days, and we could sense this.
