S/S 21 Trade Shows: LATEST NEWS
We report hereby the latest news we received from the most important kids fashion fairs, regarding upcoming trade shows, scheduled with new dates.
Pitti Immagine Bimbo: “Considering the evolution of the health emergency in Italy and around the world and in the light of the concrete prospects of an extension to the restrictive measures concerning production and commercial activities and the movement of people, the BoD discussed and deliberated the proposals presented by the CEO Raffaello Napoleone who, together with the heads of the various company departments, had carried out a broad survey of the opinions received from exhibitors, buyers, agents and other members of the trade over the past few weeks: Pitti Immagine Bimbo n°91 is confirmed and will move to 9-10 September, at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence.”
Playtime Paris – Sébastien de Hutten, CEO: “For the last several weeks, the entire Playtime team has been going over the many possible directions we could take. Clearly, we can’t keep waiting. We must make decisions now to ensure our continued success in the future. After much deliberation, we have decided, therefore, that it is in all of our best interests to cancel the July edition of Playtime Paris.
We now are looking at the possibility of a September 5-7 edition of Playtime Paris. We think it’s wise, however, to give ourselves time to reflect and wait a bit longer in order to see how the situation evolves. A final decision will be made in the month of May. For Playtime New York, and Playtime Shanghai, the decision to have, delay or cancel the show will be made in May as well.”
Ciff Youth: “We are facing volatile times due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and no two days are alike. We take the current development extremely seriously and will of course take every precaution to limit spread of the virus by adhering to the required measures. This means that we are also prepared to alter our plans for this summer’s Copenhagen Fashion Week, if necessary. We are currently awaiting specific guidelines from the authorities on restrictions on freedom of assembly as the definition of large assemblies has yet to be confirmed. Once we know, we will make a clear statement about what this means for Copenhagen Fashion Week. Ciff Youth is now scheduled on August, 5-7.“
