LOS ANGELES — Fabric firms exhibiting at next week’s Los Angeles International Textile Show aim to balance competitive pricing with novel designs as the economic limitations dictated by consumers at the retail level trickle up to the producers.
Representing one of the first levels in the fashion production process, textile designers and mills are reacting to the demands that budget-conscious consumers place on retailers and then on apparel manufacturers and the fabric purveyors. Besides a fair price for perceived value, consumers want fashion that’s delivered fast and on trend, so textile firms face the ongoing challenge of quoting the right price and making on-time deliveries.
