NEW YORK — With spring merchandise hitting the floor this month, daytime dress vendors across a variety of price points are gearing up for their top-performing season.
According to vendors, department stores have already started reordering merchandise on buys that were already ahead of last year — a key sign for a healthy season. According to NPDFashionworld, the dress and skirt market accounted for $5.3 billion in sales in 2002. For day dress departments in particular, the spring season represents a major portion of the business.
