The next edition of WHO’S NEXT (Spring/Summer 2016) and Premiere Classe  trade shows will take place from Friday 4th to Monday 7th September 2015 at the Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles, Paris, in halls 1, 2 and 3.

It will be an opportunity to see the work of talented young designers, including the work of several postgraduate students from the Fashion Institute of France  (Institut Français de la Mode) in a trend forum designed by Lisa Roth, Pauline Giraut and PZ Opassuksatit.


For the unveiling of the Spring/Summer 2016 collections, the trade shows have asked the emerging photography talent, Alexis Pazoumian along with Agency Cordialement to explore the notion of perspective. Their response is a series of photos that compare futuristic and visual perspectives. An invitation to design, discover and present a new angle of fashion.
