Organised for the first time under the PV Manufacturing umbrella, following Première Vision’s acquisition of the show last September, the Made in France exhibition this year saw 99 exhibitors (up 8 per cent from April 2013) and an exhibition area that is almost 15 per cent bigger compared to last year. Première Vision, has introduced a new look to the event, which would now be called Made in France Premiere Vision.
Made in France has also launched its own online magazine in French and English to explore the richness of French high-end manufacturing, its culture, regions, sectors and the people behind the industry – brands, manufacturers and organisations. The magazine will publish two articles a week having profiles, analysis and illustrations highlighting the best examples of Made in France initiatives by the show’s exhibitors and visitors.
Made in France 2014 to be held from April 9 to 10 in Paris is devoted to high-end apparel and accessories manufacturing. The event would be showcasing French high-end manufacturing expertise, skills, craftsmanship and industrial techniques. The 12th edition of Made in France will bring together a handpicked selection of around 100 specialist companies from garment manufacturers to weavers, including those awarded with the French government’s Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant (‘Living Heritage Company’) quality label for luxury ready-to-wear and accessories.
The exhibition is a platform for fashion designers and heads of collections on the lookout for textiles and fabrics, manufacturing solutions and related services for high-end and luxury apparel and fashion accessories.
