Leather bag & shoe manufacturing on offer at PVL

Published:  31 August, 2017

Aiming to implement an international sourcing strategy to serve increasingly global and multiproduct fashion brands, Premiere Vision Paris has announced it is expanding its range of resources for manufacturing sourcing.

One of the highlights of the upcoming edition of Première Vision Paris to be held September 19-21 in Paris will be the development of a transversal manufacturing offer to meet the needs of changing markets seeking complementary and more diversified sourcing solutions: near-shore, volume and specialised sourcing.

Visitors to the Premiere Vision Leather (PVL) show will find a broadened offer in hall 3, which includes the leather goods and footwear segments. ‘Bag & Shoe Manufacturing’ is a new space for manufacturers of footwear and leather goods, which complements the collections of exhibiting tanners and manufacturers of technical components. A selection of manufacturers and contractors will offer solutions in terms of techniques and know-how for non-specialised fashion brands looking for partners to develop their collections of bags, small leather goods and footwear.

The upcoming September edition of PVL will also host the ‘Bag & Shoe Elements’ fashion area; launched last February in the Première Vision Leather Trends Gallery, it provides a 360° view of materials and technical components for leather goods and footwear collections.

A new programme of roundtable talks is also scheduled during the three-day leather show. Consultant, footwear designer and IFM (French Fashion Institute) Professor Nathalie Elharrar will share her experiences, and propose development directions for successful footwear collections through three different conferences: ‘Innovation – the footwear industry and the 3D revolution’, ‘Consulting - optimising the customer/supplier relationship to build the right shoe collections, and ‘Know-how – the process of manufacturing a shoe collection, production techniques, pitfalls to avoid’.

Premiere Vision Leather will take place September 19-21 in hall 3, Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Park, Paris.
