In fact, all the main fashion brands belonging to the markets of the countries chosen for the presentations sat at the tables to view the collections. A result of sure value, which allowed exhibitors not only to implement the strategies of internationalization and marketing of their products, but also to open the way to new partnerships and collaborations to be developed already in the short and medium term”.

This is why we are already working on organizing the Trade Shows campaign for the Fall / Winter 23/24 collection, which should repeat the same program as this edition: Northern Europe before the Pitti Filati appointment, then Paris, London, New York, Shenzhen, Tokyo and South Korea. The dates are still being evaluated, first of all having to check the availability of the locations, but our goal is to conclude the tour by the beginning of next October “, anticipates Lorenzo Incagli, manager coordination of the activities of Feel the Yarn in Italy and abroad.
