NEW YORK — After Coterie made an 11th-hour announcement pushing its February dates up two weeks, the other New York trade shows were left scrambling to find available dates and venues — with many still undecided at the end of November.
ENK International, which runs Fashion Coterie, moved the contemporary New York trade show to Feb. 10 to 12, about two weeks earlier than usual. Although the new dates pushed against Project Las Vegas and other trade shows, ENK wanted to move the biggest New York trade show to after New York Fashion Week and before the Paris and Milan collections, to better accommodate international buyers, according to Elyse Kroll, founder and chief executive officer of ENK.
