NEW YORK — For many vendors at the Fashion Coterie, there was light at the end of the tunnel.
The industry has been talking about it for months: The economy is slowing and business is tough. While many of the vendors and retailers attending the Coterie, which ended its three-day run on Tuesday, admit that the poor economy is still on their minds, things are looking up. With bookings back on the rise, many of the 990 exhibitors who took out booths at the show said this was their strongest show in years. Many of the 9,600 registered retailers who attended the show agreed and said that they were finding an array of new items to fill their stores to draw in customers.
