Exhibitor Comment

“Despite the context, the Salon International de la Lingerie was a great success. The general
atmosphere was very vibrant and the outlook was really positive. In terms of BARBARA, we
received as many visitors as our stand could hold. Not only were the numbers good, the
calibre of customers was high too. We discussed the next supply of Barbara products to
many export clients. Thank you for all these opportunities, and our compliments to all the
team who organise this unique event.”

Hubert Lafont – Managing Director, Barbara Group

“We were very successful, so we are happy.”

Sacha Rose – CEO, Derek Rose

“It was an excellent fair for the LISE CHARMEL Group, the launch of the jewellery intimates
with a special runway show on Saturday evening was a huge success, with more than 800
people attending, and we had confirmation of very strong interest in the Epure label by Lise
Charmel. Many thanks to all the Eurovet team for their professional and enthusiastic
approach. We’ll be back next year, and will see you in July at Mode City.”

Olivier Piquet – Managing Director, Lise Charmel Group

“As a new brand at the fair, we were really happy with the number of customers who visited
the SKINY stand. The number of customers from Europe and the Middle East was especially
satisfying. Most visitors to our stand from Europe came from France, Belgium, Germany and
Spain. (…).The feedback on the Skiny concept and the brand’s DNA was excellent, and we
hope to boost our sales significantly within the next month through contacts made at the fair.”

Stefan BREITBACH – International Sales Manager, Skiny
