The 27th edition will be the first since leather trade fair; Première Vision acquired Cuir A Paris in March 2014. More than 8200m² of floor space will be occupied by leather makers, covering the same surface area as the September 2013 edition but with a selective 430 exhibitors.

European tanneries make up most of the exhibitors at the show: 54% from Italy, 17% from France, 9.5% from Spain and 6% from Turkey with a total of 94% of exhibitors coming from across Europe. All the exhibition space at the show has sold out and the show is positioning its exhibitors and their products, to best serve the premium and luxury labels from the garment, leather goods and footwear sectors that make up its visitors.

The organisers of Cuir A Paris have worked to renew and enrich the fashion information it provides, in terms of both format and content.

“All year round, useful information for preparing collections can be found on our website, our social network sites and our mobile app, as well as the latest news from the industry, articles about latest trends and features on materials. This provides visitors and exhibitors with information "just in time" for when they need it, according to their sector of activity and their products," explains Marc Brunel, Cuir A Paris, Show Manager.

For the next edition, the region of Tuscany and its tanneries, renowned for their expertise and knowledge of vegetable-tanned leather, challenged the latest generation of designers from the greatest international fashion schools to create a collection!

Another platform dedicated to research and expertise is ‘Bespoke’ and for this edition it invites visitors to explore the inner workings of creation, with a selection of 10 companies who use leather with flair on behalf of some of the biggest names in fashion.

Cuir A Paris takes place September 16-18 in Hall 3 of Paris-Nord Villepinte alongside the other Premiére Vision Plurial shows. Leathers on show are aimed for the Autumn/Winter 2015-16 season.
