NEW YORK CITY — November 15, 2018 — After an exciting summer edition of Texworld USA in July, one of the largest sourcing shows on the East Coast will return to the Javits Convention Center January 21-23, 2019. Texworld USA has positioned itself as a must attend industry event and business platform bringing together the best international apparel fabric, trims and accessory suppliers in the heart of New York City. Texworld USA continues to provide industry experts, designers, fabric buyers, merchandisers and sourcing professionals a unique opportunity to meet directly with a wide range of manufacturers and global suppliers.
Texworld USA provides a stage for the industry to explore high quality apparel fabrics, trims and accessories at a reasonable price. The show features over 16 product categories, ranging from knits and functional fabrics to cotton, denim and more. Attendees will also find the most cutting edge information on trends in textiles, the opportunity to network with manufacturers and suppliers, as well as gain new knowledge from an assortment of complimentary educational sessions that cover chemical free dying processes, effects from tariffs, China’s take on sustainable solutions and more.
“Our exhibitors, now more than ever, know the importance of speed to market as well having the ability to supply eco-friendly sourcing options to retain and obtain buyers. Manufacturers are starting to see this as a requirement and not just an option due to increased global concerns about business practices.
Though sustainability seems like a “buzz” word in the apparel industry and few brands have made serious commitments, the question is becoming who will get ahead of the game or be left behind. As trade fair organizers, we are addressing this market change by spotlighting this topic in our upcoming winter edition of Texworld USA. Our educational platform will provide a prospective from countries, retail brands and industry experts practicing sustainable, conscious ways of apparel sourcing. Our featured Resource Row will give our attendees tools for fabric recycling, ethical fashion education, fair trade and more, ” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director, Fashion & Apparel.
Local Loft will also return for the winter 2019 edition featuring domestic and local suppliers focusing on low minimums.
Attendees will also benefit from a new line-up of Textile Talks and Explore the Floor featuring discussions relevant to technology, fabric innovation and more – all on the show floor. Visitiors can also gather inspiration through Texworld USA’s trend showcase that will feature exhibitor textiles that are trending for the season.
Texworld‘s educational seminar series, organized by Lenzing Fibers will return for Winter 2019 featuring sessions hosted by industry experts. “During this time in which the apparel industry faces many sourcing challenges, we look forward to a robust Texworld USA supporting alternatives and solutions for the market. The Lenzing Innovation Seminar Series includes topics ranging from sustainability, trends and sourcing.
