The upcoming edition of Premiere Vision Leather will welcome 20 new leather and fur exhibiting companies. A total of 311 exhibitors from 27 different countries will be showcasing their Autumn/Winter 2017-18 collections, which emphasise natural materials, transparent treatments, invisible finishings as well as fantasy and ultra-technical developments for the season, in particular from the UK and Japan.

The offer from Japan is strengthened, and includes artisanal products such as indigo-tanned leathers. Also notable is a strengthened offer from Brazil, with high-quality and eco-responsible leather suedes.

A seasonal information film will be displayed and, aiming to inspire and provide informative information to quickly guide buyers in their product selections, a Leather Fashion Breakfast, held daily at 10.30am, will present the season, key colours, products and materials for the leather and fur markets.

Held jointly with another five complementary shows, specialised in yarns, fabrics, designs, accessories and manufacturing, under the global Premiere Vision umbrella, other exhibition areas within Premiere Vision Leather include the Trends Gallery, the Shoe Focus Forum and Incube, a space dedicated to innovations in the leather sector. Highlights of Incube include ecological concerns, vegetable dyes, and the promotion of newly exploited waste products from the fish and meat industries, leading to the appearance of new skins.

Premiere Vision Leather takes place September 13-15, 2016, Hall 3, Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition park, Paris. France.
