Día Mágico by FIMI is the only fair in the world specializing in first communion and ‘ceremonial’ wear, such as bridesmaid’s dresses, for children. It’s a niche market but one that serves a large world-wide audience.
From May 12 to 14, 2023, Feria Valencia held the Día Mágico and FIMI fairs together for the first time, once again cemented Valencia's position as the leading hub for children's fashion. The fairgrounds accommodated 110 exhibiting brands and welcomed over 100 buyers from more than 20 countries including Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Italy, and even Madagascar.
One of the main attractions of the 10th anniversary of the communion and ceremony fashion showcase was the Paseo Mágico fashion shows, which took place throughout the two days of the event and featured a total of nine children's brands. Here are the main trends spotted throughout the shows.
