NEW YORK, NY — September 14, 2022 — COTERIE New York, fashion event serving women’s contemporary and advanced contemporary markets, hosted by global industry connector Informa Markets Fashion returns to New York September 18-20 at the Javits Center, with a ground up rebrand that is the COTERIE as you know it, but not as you would expect it.
COTERIE New York brings thousands of top-tier retailers and premium brands together to display upcoming collections and immediates at this premier fashion wholesale event during market week in the U.S. fashion capital. This will be the first peek into the evolution of COTERIE featuring a new look, new vision, and new offering.
The new era of COTERIE will feature three immersive experience areas, centered around sustainability, technology, and community, which will come together to create a living representation of the current and future state of fashion. COTERIE New York has collaborated with world renowned architect Gonzalez Haase AAS to create two of the three design experience areas as well as a new unique concept area on the show floor which will feature a selection of carefully curated COTERIE brands.
“The new era of COTERIE will bring a modern energy to the women’s advanced contemporary and contemporary market. COTERIE is where ideas and conversations converge to create new ideas and drive new innovations through meaningful connections.” -Kelly Helfman, President Informa Markets Fashion “We recognize that the COTERIE community expects a higher level of standards when it comes to this show. We plan to exceed these expectations with this evolution.”
In line with COTERIE New York’s evolved mission and vision, sustainability will be at the forefront of the show. This season COTERIE has partnered with Arcadia Earth and AMERI_ICAN to shine a light on the current reality of the impact humans are having on the environment and call into question how far our industry will go to protect it. Part immersive metaverse experience and part educational moment, this space is designed to inspire all of us to work together towards a more sustainable future. This exciting opportunity combines both the physical and virtual worlds for attendees to experience.

This season the show is bridging IRL and digital fashion through an interactive AR (Augmented Reality).
