The Winter editions of Texworld USA and Apparel Sourcing USA recently wrapped at the Javits Center in New York City. According to show organizer, Atlanta-based Messe Frankfurt Inc., the events attracted the largest group of exhibitors and visitors for a January show with 371 and more than 4,000 respectively. Attendees — from designers to industry buyers — gathered to see the latest trends and offerings in textiles, trims, accessories, manufacturing and private label development services and finished apparel. The complimentary educational seminars, organized by Lenzing Fibers, also provided a networking and learning opportunity for visitors.
“As organizers, we recognize that our responsibilities extend far beyond providing a space for the industry to do business here in New York City,” said Jennifer Bacon, show director, Fashion & Apparel, Messe Frankfurt. “We believe in building a true industry event that unites the best talent from the industry with access to education and valuable resources, as well as a chance for our vibrant community to connect and exchange ideas.”
