NEW YORK — The sourcing and textile specialists are coming to town at a critical time for the industry.
A range of executives and experts from across the globe involved in the foundation of the supply chain — from the design, manufacture and purchase of fabrics and yarns to apparel production planning and procurement — will descend on the city this month for a host of trade shows, each with its own focus. They’ll be able to network with established and new accounts, scout out fresh materials and suppliers, and discuss a spectrum of pertinent issues on trade show floors and at seminars that will help them plan upcoming seasons’ purchasing and production.

"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.
