It's one-stop shopping for the customer."--Bernice BurgSME Inc. Showroom: 1376 Principal: Marshall Stewart Lines: A+ Limited, At Ease, C'Est City, Item, Joan Vass USA, John Christy, Kriss Kross, MM by Krizia, Red Rhythm"Everything should complement everything else in a store--I try to do that in my showroom. Nothing competes with anything else--everything has its own look and feel. Fashion drives this industry. If I represent something it must be stylish, chic, tasteful and fashionable." --Marshall StewartSusann Craig Showroom: 10-112 Principal: Susann Craig Lines: All That Glitters, Back East, Jan Michaels (jewelry), Incognito (sunglasses), K.

I can be a lower-price line for an expensive store or be high end for a more moderate store. Contemporary is more of a point of view than a style--it's a way of merchandising. Clothes should be fun, and we have a very relaxed showroom." --Susann CraigKarin Ann BergerShowroom: 13-113 Principals: Karin Berger and Beverly Simon Lines: A'Nue Ligne, Baldanza, Caroline Rose, Due per Due, Elbridge, Harriet Parker, Kielo Dyson, Mitsu/Kinu, Norman Todd, Phyllis Keitler, Regina Porter, State of the Art, Stella Blue, Susan Barry, Morton Myles, Pura"You can't be all things to all women, but we certainly try.

“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry. Head to WWD.com to read more advice from Fieg and what Smith thinks of his dad @willsmith’s Instagram account and sustainability (📷: @weston.wells)
