If you are a new upcoming designer you won’t want to miss these shows!! From the latest trends in silhouettes, color and textiles, to fabric sourcing and seminars- these shows have it ALL! And they are all FREE!!
I often attend these shows with my clients. Most new designers have no clue when it comes to textiles, weight, hand, price, mins, shipping, production costs, grading, etc. A lot of companies will try to take advantage of you if you don’t know what you are doing. So why not bring the Fashion Angel Warrior along with you so you can sound super smart and get the best price!
My appointments for these days are booking fast. Please contact me here.
Info about each one below. They typically occur only 2x a year so be sure to register now (links to register are included).
(Dates are for NYC only- 2015)
July 22: CitySource= Want to have your line Made in America? Then this is for you! A ton of local manufacturers will gather and you can meet with them face to face to price compare and get quotes. There are also trim and embroidery suppliers too! Tip= Bring one of your samples with you to show them or a detailed sketch with fabric and construction info so they can give you a proper quote. Disclaimer= Not all factories are made equal and not all are honest. Unfortunately a lot of people will promise you one things and deliver something else. I can tell you specifically which ones to steer clear of!
July 21-23: TexWorld= This is for Overseas Fabric Sourcing. Are you producing your garments overseas? If so you will benefit from also getting your fabrics from there as well. Yes minimums are usually higher but prices are cheaper and you can pay a small surcharge for being under minimums.
July 21-22: Premier Vision= This show brings together Trends, Textiles, Prints, Accessories and everything fashion. There are great seminars also (for a fee)!
Aug 4-5: DG Expo= This is the ultimate US Fabric Sourcing show! If you are looking for fabric suppliers here in the US that offer low minimums perfect for new designers, then you must attend this show!
Let me know which shows you will be attending!
