Like in January, Who's Next suffered a big decline in the number of visitors, especially from France, at its July 4-7 edition. In spite of the proximity in terms of dates with the Berlin Fashion Week, the Parisian fashion fair had to report a 15 percent drop in the number of foreign visitors, down to 14,080, as compared to one year ago. There was a big increase in visitors from Asia, however, with those from China and South Korea up by 64 percent and 52 percent, respectively. The 22,730 French visitors who entered the fair still made up 62 percent of the total attendance, but the number was off by 18 percent from a year ago, due apparently to the timing of the show, which coincided with the busy end-of-season sales. Reports indicated an above-average decline in traffic in the revisited Who's Next Accessories section of the fair and a higher level of business in the more upscale and creative Première Classe section.
