NEW YORK — Caution was in the air at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center this week, as two apparel trade shows saw sporadic buying and attendance, but a spirited mood still prevailed.
Buyers did praise the shared-venue strategy as practical and advantageous. Many vendors and merchants were doing business on fall and holiday goods, even though the shows were billed as early spring events.
