Le New Black is actually the first ever commercial online fashion fair dedicated to Brands to sell their collection to the best stores; and to Stores, as buyers, to purchase next season’s collections online. I had the chance to meet Le New Black team in their wonderful offices in Marais in Paris to learn more about their project and how they differentiate themselves from other physical fashion fairs such as the (Capsule) show or the Who’s next.
Among its subscribers Le New Black counts the most influencial concept stores such as the Dover Street Market or Colette, and also powerful department stores like Harvey Nichols. Why? Unlike the classic fashion fairs: as a brand, you can display your products all over the year on a single platform and benefit from an audience of already selected buyers. As a buyer, it obviously allows you not to travel all around the world to select a brand or a collection. Find a list of their brands (Études, Surface to Air, Tigersushi, etc…) after the jump and we’ll soon have Reda from Le New Black tell us more about the philosophy behind their project!
