572 children’s fashion and design brands, 5350 buyers and more than 10,000 visitors made this year’s Pitti Bimbo, held in Fortezza da Basso in Florence this June, again the most important (and majestic) trade fair of the industry. It really is a glorious B2B festival!
The number of buyers from Italy, Russia, Spain, Germany, UK, Belgium, Turkey, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia increased (all together the rise was +1% in terms of both foreign and Italian buyers), the numbers remained stable for United States and United Arab Emirates and saw a slight drop in number of buyers from China, Netherlands, France and Ukraine.
Kids fashion runways – APARTMENT, KidzFIZZ and #ACTIVELAB – were utterly inspiring! And the P.O.P Party at the Villa di Maiano was grand (as always)!
