Whold Beat: Whos Next
In the twenty five years since its creation, Who'sNext has become the leading international trade show for women's wear in Europe. This season's edition drew more than 50,000 visitors to the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Center in Paris during the four day event, which conveniently coincided with Maison & Objet’s home decor show. The 1,500 international exhibiting brands represented some of the most fashionable, high-end companies of apparel, accessories, shoes, beauty and lifestyle products. Although there were no children's wear lines, this show is still a great source of inspiration for trends that transcend many markets and age groups. Some of the women's brands such as Dehry, Molly Bracken, French Kick, Dixie and Lollipops (accessories) have strong children's wear collections as well, and it was fun and informative to see the adult versions of their lines.
