NEW YORK — Aiming to be a “seamless extension of the textile and sourcing trade show experience,” a new app called Le Souk Connect launches Tuesday in time for Première Vision New York.
Benita Singh, founder and chief executive officer of Le Souk, said the beta launch is through five suppliers at the Première Vision New York fabric and sourcing show taking place at Pier 94, and two at leather goods fair Lineapelle New York at the Metropolitan Pavilion. She noted that there is no direct connection to the show other than sharing these clients.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
