Calling all Menswear Designers

...NJAL has teamed up with the WHO'S NEXT Paris trade show to offer our designers a chance to expand their business for free.

Are you a menswear designer? Is your brand less than two years old? Are you looking to gain international exposure for your brand? If so, then NOT JUST A LABEL can help. We have joined up with the WHO'S NEXT Trade Show to offer four fully equipped six-square metre booths for free to our best menswear designers.

Twice a year, for the past 18 years, the essential Parisian trade show for fashion professionals, WHO’S NEXT Paris, has been presenting carefully selected brands according to creativity, design and quality criteria. WHO’S NEXT Paris is evolving with the main aim of constantly renewing its supply of talented designers.

By establishing itself as a trend spotter the show now imposes its vision of fashion as a real state of mind. More than a fashion trade show, WHO’S NEXT Paris positions itself as a place of expression through the participation of talented artists from different backgrounds and influences. This multiple and dynamic approach contributes greatly to its continued success.

Attracting more than 65,000 buyers per session (40% of which are from abroad), the show presents a selection of more than 2,000 brands (1000 at WHO'S NEXT Paris and 1000 at PREMIERE CLASSE) and draws 1000 journalists from all around the world.

Hosted in the MR. BROWN area 200 brands are featured, including mens and womens urbanwear and further divided into denim, streetwear, sports lifestyle, sportswear, “authentic” and “urban” categories.

The next edition runs from 19 -22 January 2013,  WHO'S NEXT Paris has chosen the theme of the Industrial Revolution , with a dream-like evocation of the turn of the century. A period where technical progress was a step towards more freedom for men, and an invitation to invent a new world.

A free booth means saving over €2,000 and receiving international exposure at one of the most visited industry events globally. We at NJAL want our designers to grow their businesses, and we feel a free-of-cost opportunity is what the most talented menswear designers deserve.
