MONTREAL — After 31 years, the North American Fur and Fashions Exposition Montreal, held here April 28-30, is facing an uncertain future as a rival show that debuted two weeks earlier in Chicago kept many American buyers and exhibitors away.
NAFFEM featured fewer than 60 exhibitors, down from 100 a few years ago and 200 in 2000. By comparison, there were 54 exhibitors at the April 14 to 16 International Luxury Outerwear Expo in Chicago, including 13 from Canada.

"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)
