For the second edition, the event expects to bring more exhibitors from the best of the creative world and also more highly professional visitors from the Latin America.

Première Brasil will showcase fabrics, colors and styles. Jacques Brunel, General Director of Première Vision, explains that the staging of the exhibit provides Latin American countries with an update on the international fashion calendar by presenting, one year in advance, the palette of colors and the fabrics for the Fall/Winter 2011 collection. According to Mr. Brunel, the first Brazilian version of the event helped stressing the perception on the strengthening of the market and the textile industry in Latin America, pointing out Brazil as a starting point for plain expansion.

Andréia Repsold, Vice President of Fagga Eventos, celebrates the successful edition of January of Première Brasil and stresses the importance of such a large event to include Brazil in the international calendar of the textile industry. “It has overcome our expectations. Brazil has demonstrated its strength with large companies exhibiting and it has attracted a highly qualified audience.”

According to data disclosed by Abit (Brazilian Association of the Textile Industry), over 30,000 textile and clothing companies create around 8 million direct and indirect jobs. The Association also points out that Brazil is among the ten major textile markets in the world and among the five main clothing producers. This makes Brazilian exports exceed imports in terms of business growth.

The Exhibit Première Brasil will be divided into five categories, following the exhibiting standards of Paris. According to Andréia Repsold, divising the sectors into categories bring easiness to the exhibitors' organization and optimizes buyers' visiting time. “Each category has its own atmosphere and assembles in the same space all stands according to a theme in common”, the Vice President of Fagga Eventos says.
