Textile sourcing event Texworld USA will soon return to New York for its winter edition with a refined focus on sustainability, according to show organizers. The event will take place at the Javits Convention Center on Jan. 21 to 23, showcasing previews for upcoming spring 2019/2020 “colors and textures.”
Texworld unites industry experts, designers, fabric buyers, merchandisers and sourcing professionals with manufacturers and global suppliers, including fabric, trims and accessory suppliers. Its product selection will feature over 16 categories, including knits, functional fabrics and denim at “reasonable” prices, show organizers said. And Texworld’s Local Loft will return for its winter edition, which features domestic and local suppliers that focus “on low minimums.”

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
