What was on offer

111 international exhibitors presented their collections and developments for the autumn winter 17/18 season at Première Vision Istanbul, coming from nine countries: Austria, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Pakistan, Turkey and the USA, a broad offer to create fashion collections: yarns, fabrics, accessories, denim, and manufacturing.

"In a perturbed international geopolitical context, we are determined to continue our investments in this country, one we see as a major player in the fashion industry. The Turkish economy is strong and will continue to play a major role on the world stage. "said Guglielmo Olearo, Première Vision International Show's Director.

The autumn winter 17/18 season highlights as selected by Premiere Vision from the collections were presented by Premiere Vision Istanbul exhibitors as a part of the show.

The highlights for A/W 17/18  were: A warm and cosy season that calls on fantasy including jackets and coats, in chic or casual versions. Suppleness enhanced, with a nonchalant edge for soft, enrobing shapes, and clothes with a casual fluidity. The sports spirit is gaining ground and mixes athletic and urban influences. Elasticity as a developing factor  in menswear and womenswear. Accessories and components to lend a final touch to the garment through a graphic detail or a perfect finishing.

A stop at the Trend forum revealed all the new A/W 17/18  products selected by the Première Vision fashion team from the exhibitors’ collections.

The Première Vision colour card

The colour card was another unique take away of the show. Discovering  the fashion directions and colour, textile and silhouette highlights of the autumn winter 17/18 season in the Colour Range document available at the point of sale located in the forum at the show was certainly an experience of a different sort.

A small-scale, intimate session was also held daily at 11 am and 3 pm by the exhibitors, where the Première Vision fashion team provided an overview of the AW 17/18 fashion tools..

The show took us back to our past with EMR zip museum. 26 different zippers whereon display,  the oldest one being some 80-90 years old.

"This profession and the miracle invention “zipper” that I have devoted almost all of my life to deserve such a story. I have never forgotten that my profession is not just trade or industry but true art. This masterpiece product, while taking part in the midst of human life also protects children from the cold, beautifies dresses and makes our lives easier. It is valuable because it adds value to life. I expect this museum, which I created by collecting thorough detailed research from many different countries over decades, whispers the story of the zipper to people and reminds them of the changes of life. A very long story that begins with one marvellous invention and burgeons with every new-born. Just like yours," commented Omer OZPEHLİVAN, General Manager of EMR Zipper and founder of the zipper museum.
