MARKET DATES FOR ’95: The 1995 innerwear market week dates have been set by the Intimate Apparel Council. They’ll run Jan. 9-13; March 13-17; May 15-19; Aug. 7-11 and Oct. 30-Nov. 3.
The IAC had considered eliminating the January market, said J. Thomson Wyatt, president of Vanity Fair Mills and IAC chairman, “but January remains important for valuable feedback on holiday business.”
