This year marks the sixth edition of ‘Denim' by Première Vision, which moved to its newest home within the industrial architecture of the La Halle Freyssinet in Paris. The event (held this past June), manages to bring together various professionals from all walks of life working within denim related industries. In addition to leading fibre producers, weavers, manufacturing, finishing and dyeing specialists, launderers and accessory manufacturers, more than 68 exhibitors from 17 countries participated in the spring event. Showcased were cutting-edge technologies, qualities and finishes, and the latest in colors and trims. As a special treat, this spring/summer's event held the first ‘Future Denim Designers Award', where ‘Denim' by Première Vision asked final-year students from fashion and design school Central Saint Martins' menswear degree course to answer: how do emerging designers imagine the jeans of the future?
