Playtime Paris 26
The ever popular french kids fashion and lifestyle trade show this time takes inspiration from a ‘metamorphosis’ theme. Over 500 brands will present their collections with 20% being first-time exhibitors.
The commercial director of the show Chantal Danguillaume explained ‘that in the present market the decision was made to reduce the number of collections presenting at the show. This is in an effort to offer each exhibitor better conditions in which to take part and offer each buyer a better visiting experience’. So for this edition the show organisers have curated a slightly reduced number of exhibitors and a show punctuated with more experiences for the visitor and exhibitor.
Andorine, Angulus, Barn of Monkeys, Belle Chiara, Bobo Choses, Carbon Soldier, Donsje, KiSSe, Liilu, Loud Apparel, Maison Mangostan, MarMar Copenhagen, Minimalisma, Molo, Ocra, Paade Mode, Tago, The Campamento, Weekend House Kids will show their SS20 collections.
Refreshments – the cocktail event is as is tradition on the Saturday, whilst on the Sunday you can now join Pirouette and Chris Gambrell to celebrate the completion of his live artwork at the Screencapture exhibition with a refreshing Kaoroon Scottish gin, G&T at 5pm.
Playtime is expanding their program of conference talks with five conferences taking place over the three days. Topics range from ‘Building a sustainable fashion business’ to ‘How to protect your creative work’.
There’s a focus on Art with a number of exhibitions to check out at the show. Starting with our photo exhibition ‘From inhale to drop out’ – the perfect transformation from one state to another.
It’s always good to spot a new discovery at The New Now Space and this season Playtime introduce the Playground spaces #1 & #2 dedicated to a number of workshops.
As always lots to see and do at this the 26th edition of Playtime Paris.
