The economy might be sending warning signals, but importers’ order books for the back half are relatively bullish.
Capital Business Credit’s Global Retail Manufacturers and Importers Survey found that 33 percent of importers selling to major U.S. retailers are seeing an uptick in their holiday orders. Another 44 percent report their orders are the same as last year.
Additionally, 87 percent of importers said the back-to-school season would be the same or stronger than last year’s.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
