The Underfashion Club has made changes to the intimate apparel market week calendar based on input from the industry.
Starting in 2019, market week will run from Feb. 3 to Feb. 8; May 5 to May 10; Aug. 4 to Aug. 9, and Nov. 3 to Nov. 8. For February and May, they’ve pushed the dates back a week from last season.
“Taking responsibility for setting market week dates is a highly positive initiative for the UFC. We have become an organization that is relied on for networking, ideas, information and supporting the future of the industry with student scholarships, grants and internships,” said Tina Wilson, president of the Underfashion Club. “This is yet another way we are able to further support and engage our members and the intimate apparel marketplace.”
Due to these changes, the 2019 Femmy Gala, which honors individuals and companies that have contributed to the intimate apparel industry, will take place on Monday, February 4 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.
