The makeup of the visitors was distributed as follows:

- 42 % foreign visitors

The European Union has risen slightly.
Also to be noted is the number of visits from multiple countries such as the United States, Russia, Netherlands, Korea, Turkey, Sweden and Canada… as part of a total of 45 different countries. PRET A PORTER PARIS has thus reconfirmed its status as the leading international fashion rendezvous.

The hit-parade:

- The United Kingdom
- Japan

The high place of Japan should be noted which is now ranked in fifth position.

The fair was opened by Monsieur Hervé Novelli, Secretary of State in charge of Commerce, Crafts, Small& Medium-sized Businesses, Tourism and Services; and Madame Lyne Cohen-Solal, deputy to the Mayor of Paris in charge of Commerce, Crafts,
