The Project show continues to gain traction in New York as it rebuilds its show here, after a downturn following the recession. Over 200 brands will exhibit from Jan. 16 to 18 at 82 Mercer Street, a 20 percent bump up from last July and a 75 percent improvement from a year ago.
Andrew Pollard, president of Project, noted the show has garnered more interest from European brands that are eager to reach U.S. stores as a way to counteract battered European sales due to the continuing economic crises there. “We’ve helped connect a lot more European brands with U.S. distributors and agents. Our retail sales are actually stronger here than in Europe,” said Pollard.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
