DENIM PREMIÈRE VISION draws 1,600 international visitors to buoyant, business-centric first Berlin edition

After two years of Digital Denim Weeks and a first physical show in Milan last October, Denim Première Vision took place for the first time this 17 and 18 May at the Arena Berlin. Located at the intersection of the post-industrial Kreuzberg district and the former Soviet districts of Friedrichshain and Treptow, the area is now a busy crossroads of art and creation.

The dynamic, cosmopolitan German capital helped bring together and inspire the international denim community throughout the two-day show, which welcomed 83 exhibitors and over 1,600 visitors, along with 1,800 professionals who took an active part in the Digital Denim Week from 16 to 20 May on the Première Vision website and Marketplace. 


The show’s highly international visitors - primarily buyers, designers, and order-writers - were up 31% compared to the Milan edition. In terms of their positioning, visitors were of a notably high level - and included fashion and luxury brands, retailers, pure jeanswear players, and web players.

Alongside German buyers, who topped the roster with 26% of visitors, show attendees were 74% international, coming from Europe (Italy, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, Serbia, Belgium, Portugal, Austria...), the United States, the Euro-Mediterranean basin (Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia), Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Japan) and Latin America (Brazil, Argentina).

In a buoyant and festive atmosphere - like the Denim PV Sunset Party, organized with denim-maker NDL on the event’s opening night - but most of all focused on business, industry professionals manifested their enthusiasm for a show held in the heart of an attractive and creative city such as Berlin, an event that fully met their expectations in terms of inspiration, materials sourcing, search for new partners and business development opportunities

MAY 2023: BERLIN, ACT II

Denim Première Vision is a roving show, and thus strives to ensure continuity between its various editions. While the show relies on new destinations to help industry professionals conquer new markets and discover fresh sources of inspiration, the challenge lies in building lasting relationships between these many different players.
