A turnout of more than 180 designers, wholesalers and retailers at an Interfilière-inspired event Monday underscored the impact an international fabric and lace trade fair would have in the U.S. market.
Cohosted by French trade show giant Eurovet and fibers conglomerate Invista Inc., 21 global mills from the U.S., Europe and Asia — all of whom had exhibited at the Interfilière show in Paris in July — were showcased at Manhattan’s Tribeca Skyline Studios. The event evoked an informal trade fair environment where U.S. industry executives could focus on innovative fabrics and fibers, new technologies and directional trends for the intimate apparel, performance and swimwear markets.

"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.
