About the event

Update

The fashion industry is already recuperating from the devastating effects of the pandemic. An example is the return of Who’s Next 2023 as a physical event in its usual September slot. Organisers have already announced the dates for the fair’s latest edition. Designers and buyers can look forward to a packed programme between the 2nd of September 2023 and the 4th of September 2023. Paris expo Porte de Versailles has committed to the health and safety of every visitor. As a result, organisers will adhere to the latest government policies regarding the pandemic. Currently, France does not have domestic restrictions in place. Travellers from China should note that they will be asked to present a negative test result no older than 48 hours and a signed attestation certificate upon arrival. Also, if they are travelling by plane, they will be asked to wear masks. This is due to the instated travel limitations.

Preface

Who’s Next is the fashion industry’s semi-annual trade show. It provides a comprehensive overview of the upcoming season's leading trends. It accomplishes the task by showcasing the latest collections and inspirational sources for segments, such as leather products, purses, shoes, travelling apparel, accessories, and lifestyle products. This allows a diverse range of industry specialists to remain up-to-date on the newest design ideas, colour palettes and material solutions. As a result, the event’s editions, which are held once in winter and once in autumn, frequently receive over 46 000 attendants ranging from international buyers to trendsetters and journalists. Such participants travel from more than 100 nations and represent continents such as Asia, the Americas, and Europe. Apart from learning about the forthcoming season’s fashion styles, attendants can also learn about new challenges during the event’s hosting at the Paris Expo Port de Versailles.

The participant list features diverse leading enterprises from the leather products, textiles, apparel, shoe, and fashion industries. Examples include Geox, Gemini, and MCM.
