Jenny Holloway, Director, commented: 'Profile is now in its 9th season and has received industry acclaim as a unique and valuable event.

This is the first time ever London based designers at the root of original and fresh talent, are being flown over to the states to showcase in the heart of the Big Apple. New Yorkers really will have a taste of forbidden fruit this season.'

This year NY Profile is delighted to announce that online giant asos.com will be the key line sponsor. Business between the organisers of NY Profile and asos.com began earlier this year when a trial was implemented to monitor the success of independent designers showcasing online.

Sales soared through the roof and the success secured orders for 11 of the ladieswear designers with another 4 under review.
