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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
