And it’s a wrap this time! 548 children’s fashion brands, more than 5300 buyers and 10 000 visitors made this June’s Pitti Bimbo the liveliest children’s B2B market place and a grand festival at the same time. Although there was a slight decline in the number of Italian buyers attending the fair, the number or Russian, Dutch, Austrian, Ukrainian and Chinese buyers rose.
Of the ‘big ones’ Dolce and Gabbana was back at Pitti Bimbo and the presence of John Richmond created a lot of excitement. Kids runways were amazing (as always), there were more outstanding pop up stands than before, the Nest area was full of inspiring little trendsetters and Pitti Bloom party was just fabulous. All together Pitti Bimbo was serious and fun at the same time – perfect for networking, doing business and for feeling part of the small fashion community.
