DALLAS — Buyers were primarily interested in resort deliveries of item tops, knitwear and colorful dresses at the Dallas Market Center show that ended its four-day run Aug. 16.
Knitwear and an emphasis on comfort were top priorities, typified by tennis sweaters, shawl-collar cardigans, open-gauge sweaters, ponchos and dresses. Continuing trends included moto jackets, rompers, jumpsuits, texture, stripes, lace, colorblocking, asymmetry and artistic prints.
