Who’s Next, the fashion fair opening in Paris today, will focus on the most creative and individual streetwear brands in the «Fast» section. Customized sneakers by Art Force One will be included in this space, whereas more commercial brands such as Converse and Desigual will be displayed in a different area. Like last year, the trade fair will also host some creative Chinese designers.
More space will be set aside for footwear at next February’s edition of Pure, the well-established contemporary women’s wear show in London. New brands will have an extra 7,000 square feet on the upper floor of the show, to be held at the Olympia on Feb. 10-12. The event will present around 800 brands in total.
