More than 40 vendors will take part in the first International Luxury Outerwear Exposition, which will be held April 14 to 16 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
Blue Duck Trading, Chosen Furs, Dominic Bellissimo, Trilogy and Wolfie will be among the vendors. Aimed at luxury specialty stores, ILOE is being organized by a group of fur manufacturers and designers that consists of Chosen Furs, Rendezvous NY, L.A. Rockler Fur Co. and Mitchies Matchings from Canada. Their aim is to attract stores in search of on-trend fur, fur-trimmed, leather, cashmere and shearling coats from top brands.
To celebrate the event’s launch, show manager Gina Sullivan is planning an opening-night cocktail reception and Casino Night that will support the Fur Information Council of America.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
