DALLAS — Texture and novelty were key selling points at Fashion Industry Gallery’s three-day market, which ended May 31, where buyers were in an upbeat mood as they wrote orders for wide-ranging seasons at the transitional show, from immediate goods through holiday styles shipping in October.
Fabrics embellished with flocking, grommets, metallic shimmer, perforations, sequins, embossed textures and tie-dye treatments were popular. Bestsellers included shirt jackets, banded tops, tops and jeans in leather mixed with stretch fabrics, and high-low hemlines on tunics, dresses and oversize cardigans. Colorful snakeskin handbags also did well, along with scarves, spiky necklaces and bold crystal jewelry.
