NEW YORK — The Designers & Agents show underscored just how much the contemporary sector — once the domain of T-shirt and denim lines — has evolved in recent years.
Many of the fashion labels were so sophisticated that they can easily serve as a segue to the entry-level designer arena. Colorful prints, embellishments and embroideries — both artistic and ethnic — were among the key trends, as well as details such as lace. Jumpsuits, the ubiquitous spring trend, were also evident, and accessories played an increasingly important role in the merchandise mix.
