DALLAS — Fashion Industry Gallery expects all 50 of its showrooms to be occupied plus 100 exhibitors at its Shop booth show at the fall market, taking place March 21 to 23. Contemporary dress designer Amanda Uprichard will be featured.
“It feels like the momentum has picked up,” said Matt Roth, chief executive officer and co-owner of the juried fashion venue in the Arts District. “We are totally full for March, and after that we have one or two rooms available for permanent lease, but I’ve got legitimate prospects for those spaces, so it’s just a matter of time before we are full — and we haven’t had that problem in a long time.”
