Collections to show highly addictive RTW fashion trends
Nov '12
Collections, the international trade show dedicated to ready-to-wear and accessories collections for fashion retailers, is taking place on 28 and 29 November 2012 at Lille Grand Palais, bringing together some 110 exhibitors specialising in fast fashion, for which northern France is a key business hub. 

Collections, the trade show that brings together collections of private label and own brand clothes and accessories for men, women and children, is looking forward to its second session following the success of the June edition, in which the synergy between the entire fashion supply chain present at Fast Fashion Lille played an important role in boosting business networking opportunities. 

For the second time, some 120 specialists in fashion clothing and accessories from a dozen countries, all in tune with the latest trends and experienced in offering creativity at competitive prices, will gather to participate in this event, which brings together design directors, buyers, stylists and marketing directors, from retail brands, mail order/e-commerce, multiple retailers and department stores..
120 collections will showcase the key updates for Summer 2013 as well as confirming the trends for Winter 2013-?14, with a particular focus on women, the undisputed star of the show. The children’s sector remains strong, with a high quality selection of well-made products. Men play a stylish supporting role with dedicated collections whose accent is on casual looks and sportswear.
Collections researches and picks companies (predominantly European) that are able to combine creativity and innovation with the convenience of easy access and competitive prices:
• Italian fashion is prominent, with a well attended pavilion: the northern Italian hubs of Carpi and Verona will be represented by 27 companies largely dedicated to women’s ready-to-wear, plus some knitwear and accessories.
• Portugal continues to send a strong contingent with 15 exhibiting companies presenting an offer that is considerably more varied: in addition to children’s products, their speciality, men and women will also be represented.
• France is a powerful magnet, with a number of market leaders participating for the first time, such as Folia, Mc-Lin Swëënë, Smart & Joy, and Eva Tralala, plus 21 well-known Parisian companies including Anaïs Su, La Fleur de Mon Secret, TAL, and Tatouage, and several northern French companies with an excellent reputation for producing trend-led products at competitive prices. There is also an extremely wide selection of accessories products and companies with expertise in licensing.
• A number of companies from Belgium (Tonicks, another first-timer) complete the “northern” offer of exhibitors that marry creativity and efficiency.
