3rd Edition: Registration Opening

Every season, the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows return as a leading trend hunter and fashion incubator.



After a successful second edition with over 850 applications from 60 different countries, the trade shows have teamed up with the online platform NOT JUST A LABEL to present the third season of THE FUTURE OF FASHION PROGRAM.

Registration opens this Wednesday 27th April!

The program calls for young hopefuls in ready-to-wear, accessories and urban denim/streetwear fashion who have never exhibited at the Paris trade shows before to submit their applications and portfolios.

At the end of the selection process, 30 young talents will have the opportunity to present their Spring/Summer 2017 collections in front of a panel of key fashion industry professionals.

Always keen to support these young labels in the launch of their brands and their marketing and sales strategy, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE have welcomed internationally renowned expert, Gretchen Harnick, on board. Instructor at Parsons School for Design, she is also President of Pattern to Plan, a support agency for young talent.

As well as continuing to coach the 3 winners from last January’s edition, Gretchen will host themed sessions for the newly selected candidates in the aim of delivering advice on building brand identity, development strategy, refining target markets and how to leverage communication.
