Pitti Bimbo 89’s theme is “Special Click” – that moment of spark, the catalyst to success, the X factor. There’s big changes in location to KidzFIZZ, ACTIVELAB, The Nest, EcoEthic and Kid’s Evolution… with all five areas relocating to the top level of The Main Pavilion under the new project THE KIDS LAB – “A platform for all expression of experimental kidswear” says Pitti. It will be interesting to see how the new space will work for both exhibitors and buyers. Also new is Emporio Armani junior who will be presenting their collection for the first time at the show.

There will be runway shows from Nature Angel, Manila Grace, Stefania and Children’s Fashion from Spain (Abel & Lula, Amaya, Boboli, Mayoral, Tuc Tuc) with the addition of Kid’s MODAPORTUGAL (Laranjinha, Knot, Phi Clothing, Cherry Papaya, Patachou, Play Up)
