isWe are a go. And we will be live. Two fairs confirmed their February schedules in Milan and Paris. Milano Unica will take place in Fieramilano Rho on February 1st and 2nd, while Première Vision Paris will be live between February 8th and 10th. All considering that, just a few days ago, under the Tour Eiffel, the French Fashion Week was concluded, and Haute Couture shows recently began.
Milano Unica goes live
“The next appointment for the 34th edition of the live fair is scheduled for the upcoming February 1st and 2nd, from 9:00 to 18:30”. Location: “Pavilions 12, 16 and 20 of Fieramilano Rho Fiera”. Milano Unica, fair dedicated to “textiles and accessories for the apparel segment” (in photo on the right), also writes that they “wait for companies, fashion professionals and journalists for a two-day event dedicated to the Spring/Summer 2023 collections”.
Milano Unica confirmed its dates, just as it was done by Lineapelle (February 22 – 24). And it does so by offering a special add-on focused on the most interesting and exciting textile manufacturers of Japan (12 companies) and Korea (5 companies).
The inauguration ceremony for the latter will be held at 11:00am on February 11th, and “it will be an important occasion for the textile and accessories segment to join together”. This ceremony will also host a debate on “training-related matters, as it’s a fundamental value of the chain and a chance to discuss a very contemporary topic that determines the system’s continuity”. It will be titled “Mani sapienti per tessere il futuro della filiera: la cultura della formazione nell’industria tessile italiana”.
Première Vision confirms its February schedule
Première Vision Paris (in photo on the left) confirmed its live event in Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord-Villepinte from February 8th through the 10th, but it will also have a Digital Show during the same dates.

Paris’ fashion show continue
Paris’ Fashion Week closed just a few days ago. But 4 more days dedicated to Haute Couture are continuing the former’s work. The majority of the brands present during Fashion Week dedicated to present their collections live. “There is nothing comparable between a live catwalk and an online event. It’s clear to everybody, especially to couturiers”, explained Ralph Toledano, president of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, which managed all of Paris’ fashion shows (reported Fashion Network). The schedule shows 16 physical catwalks, 7 brands choosing a hybrid format and 6 fully online.
