NEW YORK — Following a dismal Christmas selling season, innerwear vendors are waiting on pins and needles for the results of this week’s market.
While overall apparel sales were said to be lackluster, lingerie sales were generally off by 15 to 30 percent against a year ago, according to several major department store retailers. Because of this deficit, a big question being asked by manufacturers is how much have budgets been slashed for transitional, back-to-school and early fall 2003.
