LOS ANGELES — Textile vendors will present bright color palettes, environmentally friendly materials and high-quality fabrics to lure designers and manufacturers to next week’s Los Angeles International Textile Show.
Starting on Monday, the three-day show at the California Market Center will highlight domestic suppliers, as well as companies from countries such as France, China and South Korea. But all the exhibitors face the same predicament — a slowing U.S. economy that may curtail orders for the fall-winter 2009 collections on display.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
