The first Interfilière textile and lace trade fair in the U.S. will be staged in New York City in mid-September. An exact date has not been disclosed, but Interfilière’s first textile locale for North America, a textile salon that has traditionally been staged exclusively at the Salon International de la Lingerie and Mode City shows in Paris, will be held in SoHo at 82 Mercer Street, an event space. More than 50 international textile and lace brands will be exhibited, said Pierre-Nicolas Hurstel, chief executive officer of Curvexpo, the U.S. subsidiary of the French trade-show giant.
Hurstel revealed the news as he hosted a Champagne event earlier this week to unveil details of the upcoming Mode City fair, scheduled July 5 to 7 in Paris.
