Texworld USA, the largest apparel fabrics show in North America, has partnered with Manufacture NY, a fashion incubator for emerging designers. The partnership between Texworld USA and Manufacture NY will allow attendees, established and emerging designers, the opportunity to source fabrics and speak with Manufacture NY about their products and services offered.
“Our goal is to be able to provide all the necessary resources for our attendees at Texworld USA. By partnering with Manufacture NY we will be able to provide our visitors with an interactive show floor and for our emerging designers, a premium resource on how to start their brand,” says John P. Gallagher, President & CEO of Messe Frankfurt, Inc.
Texworld USA will be identifying exhibitors on the show floor that are able to produce smaller minimums along with eco-friendly textiles in order to meet the needs of the buyers.
Bob Bland, Founder & CEO of Manufacture NY states, "Texworld USA's commitment to providing the next generation of fashion designers with low minimum and domestic textile sourcing options makes them an ideal partner for Manufacture New York. We look forward to working with them as the trade show floor becomes more interactive and responsive to 21st century material sourcing needs."
Manufacture NY will be providing interactive elements to the show floor such as a sewing section with current members creating original designs as well as mannequins displaying finished garments.
Texworld USA is the largest sourcing event in North America for apparel fabric buyers, research and product development specialists, designers, merchandisers and overseas sourcing professionals.
The 16th edition of Texworld USA will take place January 21 – 23, 2014 at the Javits Convention Center – North Hall in New York City. We are pleased to announce that Apparel Sourcing will be located within Texworld USA at the January show.
