NEW YORK — When Louis Vuitton opened its spring runway show with a train of candy-colored satin daytime dresses, it was a clear sign the category was in for a bright season at retail.
According to retailers in New York — where the weather has been anything but favorable for dresses — as well as boutiques and department stores around the country, the spring and summer dress category is perennially important. For the one-year period ending in March, the sector generated $3.6 billion in sales, according to The NPD Group.
