SnapChat: Taye HansberryWho Next and Premiere Classe Trade shows.
When the amazing team over at Who's Next invited me to come experience the two premiere fashion trade shows in Paris I was super gity. It had been years since I was in Paris. I was very eager to head back and what better way to go than with all kinds of new fashion. These are the days where I thank my lucky stars that I get to do what I do.
So you may be wondering what the heck Who's Next and Premiere Classe are..
Here is a little about the two shows
WHO'S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE present to the over 58,000 visitors from around the globe some of the biggest trends in women’s ready-to-wear and accessories. The winter collections are presented in January and the summer collections in September. These collections are divided between 5 distinct areas: PRIVATE, TRENDY,URBAN, STUDIO and FAME.
Okay those are the nuts and bolts.. now to the meat..
When I first walked into the show I was mesmerized by the amount of amazing chic, cool and trendy clothing that I saw all in one enormous space. Usually when you think of trade shows you think of a bunch of different designers thrown together in such a non cohesive way that it makes your head spin.
Who's Next and Premiere Classe are the exact opposite of the aforementioned trade-shows. Everything beautifully organized by category and style... and not only does the show encourage established small designers but they also put on a Graduate Fashion show showcasing the talent of fashion students from various schools. And I have to say this Fashion show was amazing. I had my eye on at least 5 designers that we are sure to see in the years to come.
But it does not stop there.. 15 young designers are selected before the show to compete in a competition called The Future of Fashion. 5 of the 10 designers per category win the opportunity to exhibit at the January 2016 show. This for any young designer starting out is huge!
While at the show myself and my fellow bloggers from around the world (there were 4 of us) were asked to check out the young designers in the competition and choose a look from one designer to shoot. I am so excited that the designer I chose Matteo Lamandini (@matteolamandini) is one of the 3 finalists from the Urban category and if he is chosen will show at Who's Next in January. Fingers crossed. He is uber talented! Below is my shoot in some of Matteo's amazing pieces.
Huge thank you to the team at Who's Next for thinking of me.
