Premier Vision 2017



Sarah Glyn-Woods –


Alice and I went to PV in Paris this February as Sublitex were exhibiting in Premiere Vision Designs. This is a great opportunity for me to meet the Italian team and the other agents from Europe. We also visited the design studios and selected artwork with Alice for the UK market.

Sublitex have their own studio creating designs in Italy but compliment this with designs that they purchase to give a broader offering to their international clients.


A busy stand with clients from France and Italy


Mr Fererro the CEO of Miroglio Textile, with our good friend Ettore Formento the M.D of Sublitex Textiles deep in conversation.


Alice on a mission to find a design as only she knows how.


The stand was truly beautiful open and bright and our clients and agents enjoyed looking through the collection while nibbling on hunks of Parmesan and rosemary crackers. Caught you Christophe Spies (France) and Tom Pericci (Italy).

It is also an opportunity to visit the European Print houses such as FTF of France, a well established print company and speak with Fred Touati their M.D.

Our designs looked stunning on his stand and Fred’s collection reflected the latest trends for embroideries, striped designs and painterly flowers

Alice and I are always interested to see the base fabrics that are prints are applied to and at FTF the fabrics brought our print alive.

Everywhere we saw there were a strong Asian influence, conversational stripes, foliage and greenery and as a total contrast painterly non print prints in both the Halls and the Trend section.

Here’s a reminder of what’s to come from Sublitex in their Fast Fashion Spring Summer 2016 Collection, as shown at their offices in Dock Leicester back in November. The sophisticated, feminine florals really caught our eye.
