Summer loving is in the air at The Big Small Show! The season kicked off at Playtime Paris, and we’re still riding the positive vibes. A show is only as good as all who participate, so in addition to the amazing offer of brands, we pride ourselves on opening the doors to an unparalleled level of visitors. The buyers in attendance are highly qualified, as are the press and influencers that come to meet the main players in the kids’ fashion and lifestyle industry. From learning new brands’ stories to linking up with old friends, these trendsetters in the children’s market wander the aisles in search of brands that catch their eye. Let’s flashback to the fun we had in Paris by meeting some of the brands top press and influencers loved this season!
