Pitti Bimbo: The Place to Be for children’s fashion and lifestyles. All the sections, the numbers and what’s new!

503 collections expected (versus 437 at the previous winter edition), 280 of which from abroad (53% of the total), and over 6,900 buyers, making a total of just under 10,000 visitors at the last winter edition: these are the figures for Pitti Immagine Bimbo 84.

Scheduled to be held from 19 to 21 January 2017 at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, Pitti Bimbo is the most important international fair, in terms of quality and research, dedicated to children’s fashion.

An extraordinary incubator of trends that increasingly focuses on research and across-the-board proposals: at this edition it will launch new exhibition projects portraying the multi- faceted lifestyles of the littlest set and the new frontiers of the most sophisticated concept stores. From the big brands and best known designer names of Apartment which proposes a selection of collections made with an almost sartorial care; to the names at Ecoethic that fly the ecological flag, to the sportswear of Sport Generation and the urban rhythms of Superstreet.

Then there is the blend of research and experimentation of the brands in Kidzfizz and the new Fancy Room, which offers special design and technology products, for fun, curious lifestyles, whilst the new project - The Nest - will have the task of selecting niche brands with a high creative content. Plus there are the new Pitti Bimbo Editorials: the selection of Pet Family accessories designed for the family’s other little ones, and Mini Traveler which proposes lots of fun objects for little travelers, all now citizens of the world.
