NEW YORK — With retailers at the Train show here saying they reduced their open-to-buys by 10 to 33 percent for fall, only special items made the cut.
Buyers reported they are scouring harder and waiting longer to place orders. Printed dresses, novelty outerwear and statement scarves were best-selling items at the show, which is owned by Paris-based Prêt à Porter and ran from Feb. 21-23 at the Terminal Stores.
