LOS ANGELES — Textile vendors felt the impact of the stalling economy and many designers sought bargains while delaying orders at the Los Angeles International Textile Show.
The expo, which ended its three-day run Oct. 29 at the California Market Center, featured 280 exhibitors, including 80 from South Korea and 15 from Europe. Although there were designers who sought quality goods such as silk, cashmere and elaborate rhinestone trims, many inquired about less-expensive options such as rayon. Vendors said customers did not want to take risks.
