The next Tissu Premier exhibition will be held in Lille (France) on January 31 to February 1. This exhibition is the first European fabric rendez-vous before Moda In (Milan) and Première Vision (Paris). There will be almost 400 exhibitors of which 188 are French and 197 are from outside France.

This exhibition claims to be the link between European fabric manufacturers and the large retail distribution groups. It event is especially useful for buyers as two collections will be presented, the offer for spring/summer 2002 and also the last minute update of the autumn/winter 2001-2002 collection.

The organisers of Tissu Premier have made efforts to upgrade the collections presented with more creative products. In the areas Women - Fashion, Men - City, and Unisex - Casual, the collections will announce the comeback of feminine chic and classic menswear (the return to suits) as well as variations on casualwear and activewear.
