Supplier platform

A new concept in France, a true solution for online sourcing, this general directory of French fashion know-how is now an essential tool for the profession.

Updated daily: it inventories the existing actors of industrial and handmade clothing in France:

  • Manufacturers and sub-contractors of clothing, fashion accessories and household linens
  • Material and trim suppliers
  • Service providers (design offices, printers, consultants, etc.)

Advantages of the Supplier Platform:

  • Instantly puts clients and suppliers together. Companies with know-how who are registered in the directory are contacted directly by clients who seek manufacturing solutions.
  • Improves the visibility of companies and their know-how that will benefit by having a personalized, complete profile visible in a dedicated space.
  • Promotes “Made in France” and creates a pro-relocalization tool.

Business Meetings for Know-how

Launched in 2013, these meetings have two objectives:


  • Validate our suppliers’ know-how to maximize their commercial potential.
  • Bring designers and brands new perspectives to enrich their creation and support their production.

With each session, a specific theme will bring together a panel of experts, manufacturers and craftsmen to present innovative or traditional solutions at close-proximity.

These “Business Meetings for Know-how” will meet the needs of brands and fashion designers who seek inspiration and technical know-how.

They welcome professionals from the biggest ready-to-wear, couture, lingerie and fashion accessory houses, especially design studio directors, production directors, product managers, etc. These meetings enrich visitors and provide them with new directions to develop their future collections.


Accompanying brands to develop their collections

The Maison du Savoir-faire et de la Création experts propose a personalized, technical accompaniment to brands and designers for different steps of the collection process and production.

These professionals welcome known brands and designers (winners of ANDAM, Designers Apartment, the Hyères festival, etc) in individual meetings that will help define their needs and set up work solutions to develop their activities.
