PARIS — Exhibitors at last week’s Texworld show said they did a steady business, though they acknowledged the uncertain economies of many nations have left buyers cautious.
The show ran concurrently with the upmarket Première Vision show, where the bulk of exhibitors are high-end European mills. Held from Sept. 18-21 at the CNIT complex at La Defense, the business district on the western outskirts of Paris, the fair featured mills from China, South Korea, India, Turkey and Brazil that showed fall-winter 2003-2004 fabrics to large-volume buyers.

"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)
