NEW YORK — It was a tough back-to-school season, but teens are still shopping with a frenzy and junior sportswear makers are about as upbeat as any apparel vendors.
Sales of junior apparel registered a 9.2 percent gain to $9.6 billion in the first nine months of this year, according to NPDFashionworld consumer data. This comes at a time when total spending on women’s apparel slipped about 5 percent compared with the same period last year.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
