Première Classe: an important editionThe French exhibition ended on a positive note on 10 September 2018. Twice a year (January and September) visitors from all over the world come to the event – held in conjunction with Who’s Next – who consider the fashion accessories presented to be an important point of reference for their purchases

affiche-campagne-724x1024_lowThe edition was characterised by nice weather and a positive turnout of buyers who flocked to see the 760 brands of accessories, representing shoes, bags, costume jewellery, hats, scarves, etc. 43% of the exhibitors were from France, while all the others were primarily from countries such as Italy, Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom. In total, exhibitors from 41 countries participated in the event with 30% of them arriving in Paris for the first time. “Africa Street” was the theme of Who’s Next and Première Classe and it is interesting to note how for the first time – most probably – the African continent was the protagonist of one of the most important international fairs in the world. All things considered, it can be said that the September 2018 edition of Premiere Classe confirmed the validity of the fair’s international scope, while also offering interesting previews of the trends in bags and shoes for the Spring-Summer 2019. Première Classe and Who’s Next will return from 18 to 21 January 2019, always at the Parc des Expositions - Porte de Versailles in Paris.
