Denim Première Vision, an event bringing together denim lovers to discover the new season is ready to kick off Spring/Summer 2020 next month revolving around four themes: Discover, Care & Share, Performance Perspective, and Personalization. Forward-looking inspiration and fashion directions, de-codings and analyses of tangible and complementary trends, as well as creative collaborations will be celebrated. The show’s fashion information, developed by its dedicated team, explores the season and showcases denim’s full breadth and modernity to meet the challenges of all fashion markets. This time, the show will take place in December at the Old Truman Brewery in London.
Denim Première Vision proposes exclusive initiatives around a select offer from 89 leading exhibitors representing the global creative denim industry. The show features an expanded offer this season, with an 11% increase in exhibitors.

Theoretical and practical workshops will be held to learn everything about designing and manufacturing denim items. Another highlight is the new and exclusive collaboration with the English design duo behind Marques’ Almeida, who present an exclusive masterclass on Wednesday afternoon.

Specialist, strengthened offer
The show is laid out by activity sector, to put products and exhibitors’ developments back at the heart of the event. Denim Première Vision presents an updated and strengthened international offer from 89 companies, an increase of 11% versus the 80 exhibitors at the November 2017 show.
Leading exhibitors, including 14 new companies, from 18 countries, were selected from Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Portugal and the UK, as well as Turkey, Japan, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Brazil and the US, in addition to Morocco, Tunisia and Mauritius.
The organizers have reported that, “Young designers, niche brands and pure players on the web all currently integrate denim into their collections, whether for capsule collections or just a few pieces for their ready-to-wear line. To respond to the recent emergence of these new players in the fashion and denim markets, one year ago the show launched the SMQ Corner (SMQ = Small Minimum Quantity) “This space focused on small quantities is found at the show again this edition, presenting a selection of garment manufacturers and laundries able to combine speed, flexibility, technical knowledge, proximity and services with the ability to produce flexible volumes.”
