PARIS — Trade shows in the French capital are bracing for a tough second half of the year, even as they shift exhibition dates for greater synergy.
“For the first three months, clothing sales in France are down four percent according to our preliminary results. March was very bad, with an 11 percent decrease, mostly caused by the bad weather,” said Gildas Minvielle, head of the French Fashion Institute, IFM’s economic observatory. “We can expect a slight improvement for the second half of 2013 over the same period in 2012, which was terrible. IFM is forecasting a decline of around 2 percent in clothing sales for 2013.”

"I thought years ago that [Jaime] was going to bite the bullet. [The writers] knew who would be left standing, but they never told us so it was this constant guessing game," says @gameofthrones actor @nikolajwilliamcw.
