It’s Back in a Big Way

Judging from the reviews of last week’s runway shows and the surge of buyers that hit the floors of FAME, AccessoriesTheShow Pavilion, and Moda Manhattan first thing this morning, New York Fashion Week is back in a big way. In fact, so many of you have shopped today that our first day attendance hit an all-time high just five hours after our doors opened. The shows’ 149 new exhibitors and a floor that is 51% larger than last year has been a compelling draw this market. We thank all of you who have traveled from afar this season as buyers have haled from 47 states and 40 countries with Japan leading the pack. Another highlight of Day one was a visit from Tim Gunn and we thank him for taking the time to check out all of the energy and newness the shows have to offer. FAME, AccessoriesTheShow Pavilion, and Moda Manhattan run through 4:00 PM on the 22nd and we hope to see you soon.
