To be held September 19-21 in Hall 3 of the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte, Première Vision Leather will showcase the Autumn/Winter 2019-20 collections. Following the strong development of manufacturing sourcing, the show will have a new specialised Leather Manufacturing area, which will introduce fashion brands to the know-how of a select group of 21 exhibitors in this edition; manufacturers of footwear, leather goods and leather clothing.

The September edition will host a programme of conferences and dedicated workshops, particularly around the topics of eco-design and leather traceability. A total of 294 exhibitors are expected to showcase their collections at Première Vision Leather, of which 24 new.

The 10th anniversary of the PV Awards will be presided by Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens, who previously worked for Rochas, Nina Ricci and Theory, before launching his own label in 2016. In all, eight PV Awards will be handed out, of which four prizes for leathers.
