Next month, The Interline’s Editor-in-Chief, Ben Hanson, will join a roster of other industry experts to deliver a keynote presentation at Première Vision, Paris.
Ben will be closing out the second day of the event (5th July) with his talk on ‘Why Digitisation Will Define The Future Of Fashion’. This keynote presentation will capture fashion at a critical juncture, as the industry recovers from the pandemic and begins to embrace technology not just as a lifeline during disruption, but as the foundation for the future of everything from fabric sourcing and technical development to creative design and future-proof retail. Ben’s session will explain why, today, fashion is at a tipping point in its decades-long digital transformation journey, and how the changes taking place will set the shape of things to come – from the Metaverse to the future of materials.
For nearly 5 decades, Première Vision has been uniting fashion professionals and accelerating their businesses. It is the beating heart of a unique ecosystem of international textile trade fairs where inspiration, creativity and opportunities come together.
Biannually, Première Vision Paris brings together various players working in raw materials and services for the production of garments and accessories (with a specific focus on bags, shoes and fantasy jewellery) to effectively assist professionals in developing their collections.
Each season, Première Vision Paris takes up the challenge of housing all the resources needed to build the most cutting-edge collections of ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes and fantasy jewellery on the market – all in one place.
Complementing its leading Paris event, the group also offers annually: 2 editions of the Denim Première Vision show, situated within influential European capitals; 1 annual edition of Made In France Première Vision – also in Paris – dedicated to promoting all French industry production regions and know-how; 1 annual edition of Blossom Première Vision, dedicated to the high-end, luxury market; 2 international shows with Première Vision New York; plus Première Vision Sport launched in Portland in 2019; Première Vision Shenzhen launched in 2020.
Each of these events aims to propel the global fashion industry forward, with a clear set of objectives: to capture creativity at its source; to take the pulse of global business and share it with industry professionals; to raise the awareness of professionals regarding industry challenges by providing the larger picture and concrete answers for the future of creative fashion; and to connect the market’s key players, both in person and on-line.
And through 8 activity sectors, 5 fashion information forums, 20 conferences, and 1,180+ suppliers, this year’s headline Parisian event is sure not to fall short on delivering these objectives, and more.
At Première Vision Paris this July, Ben will be joined on the agenda by key industry presenters, including Augustin Firino Martell, Fashion & Luxury Manager at Crystalchain, Franziska Dormann, Global Brands Agent at GOTS, Kara Hurry, CMO at Good Earth Cotton, Crispin Argento, COO of FiberTrace, Julie Pont, Head of Fashion & Creation at Heuritech, Victoire Satto, Co-founder of The Good Goods and host of the ON(WARD) FASHION podcast, Surya Valluri, Chief Sustainability Officer at Birla Cellulose, and Roei Derhi, the founder and creative director of Placebo DFH.
