NEW YORK — Accessories vendors and retailers attending trade shows here last week said navigating through still treacherous economic conditions has forced them to seek ways to reduce costs yet offer product that delivers innovation and value.
Industry representatives at JA, Accessorie Circuit and AccessoriesTheShow expressed hope that the recession had passed, despite warning signs suggesting an economic slowdown in the second half of the year.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
