Splash Paris, the premium trade event, follows up its debut in summer 2016 with its second show from 25-27 June in central Paris (Pont Alexandre III, 75008).
The first event was hailed as the ‘key, new addition to the womenswear tradeshow calendar’ whilst exhibitors were impressed at the show attendance’s in terms of quality, relevance and the overall number of buyers and press. In 2017 the show will double in size and take place at a tented venue located on the banks of the River Seine close to Les Champs Elysees. Co-founders of the Show, Claire Spencer-Churchill and Alex Lyles, commented: “With plenty of experience of being exhibitors at tradeshows, we had high expectations for a venue. We struggled to find a venue that ticked all our boxes, so we decided to build our own!”
Prestigious brands such as Heidi Klein, Mara Hoffman, Camilla, ViX and Lazul are joined by new brands this year including Jets, Solid + Striped, Pily Q, Milly, Albertine and Pippa Holt with an impressive line up of resortwear labels. “It’s great to see a dedicated swim show in Paris that has an independent edge and is competing with overseas events”: Perrie Reynolds, Buyer of the Body Studio (Selfridges).
The Show also offers a select range of British based swimwear designers including Asceno, Biondi, Lisa King, Lilleput & Felix and Paolita. For further information contact Claire or Alex on 020 7603 2043.
