International Children’s and Junior Fashion Fair, FIMI, is getting set for its 88th edition and is moving from its traditional January slot to the first week of February, specifically to 1st-3rd of the month.
The purpose behind the move is to further drive the visibility of Spanish fashion around the world and comes in response to buyers from other countries’ interest in coming to the fair. Indeed, the number of international buyers attending has grown steadily over the last few editions. The most recent FIMI attracted buyers from 30 countries – Algeria, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Honduras, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Lebanon, Libya, Mexico, Morocco, Oman, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Switerland, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States of America – and was the most international edition yet.
FIMI will be making more changes too, all designed to make the fair the “hub for children’s fashion from Spain that nobody can afford to miss, be they on the supply or the demand side of the business,” comments FIMI director Alicia Gimeno.
