Premiere Vision Sao Paulo is boosting its presence in Brazil with plans to add a space for apparel manufacturers to broaden its services to meet needs of the whole garment-making chain.

In its next fall 2015 edition, the Paris-based textiles salon will roll out a manufacturing component "to offer a more integrated services chain for our visitors, enabling them to make an entire collection here, from the design inspiration to the raw materials to make a piece," said the show's manager Luana Cloper.

The latest spring edition, its 10th in Brazil, drew nearly 6,000 visitors to Sao Paulo and was timed to coincide with a new calendar for Sao Paulo Fashion Week, with which the fair struck a cross-marketing alliance.

With the catchphrase "Let the Celebration Continue", the event also saw the launch of a so-called Focus Trends service to help local and international brands anticipate Latin American colour and fabric trends to help fashion their collections. A designer consultancy service dubbed Week-end Textil also rolled out.

Olivia Merquior, the fair's Latin America fashion coordinator, said Brazil is the testing ground for the trend service, which Premiere Vision hopes to eventually launch in other countries.

"Latin America, like the United States or China, has special fashion needs that require special solutions for production and consumption," Merquior said. "Brazil is our laboratory [for this initiative]...It's a new market open to a lot of things. We will see how it goes before we introduce this in our other global editions."

International exhibitions director Guglielmo Olearo said the fair aims to lift its profile as the main high-end textiles fair in Latin America, and that the new services will help fulfil that aim.

With the expansion, he expects the event's revenues to rise 15% to EUR2.8m ($3.8m) next year while visitors for the two editions should increase 5% to 15,000.
