Despite an earlier start date because of the Jewish holiday and a rejiggered show layout, exhibitors said they were pleased with the pace of business at Coterie, which opened Saturday and ran through Monday.
Tom Nastos, president of UBM Fashion, said, “Overall, we’re really happy. It’s a different pattern, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, but we’re very satisfied.” He said retailers who normally travel to Europe were able to attend on Saturday. This year, Coterie took over two floors, rather than the usual one big floor because that layout wasn’t available with the new Saturday start date. The number of exhibitors was flat to a year ago.
