The Los Angeles International Textile Show, which took place at the California Market Center (CMC) from October 27-29, 2008 ended on a high-note Wednesday afternoon with attendees and exhibitors working until final minutes of the show.

“We've had a great show,” said new Senior Tradeshows Manager, Chelsea Matthews, “The exhibitors are writing orders and many have been saying this is the best business they have done all year.”

The LA Int'l Textile Show kicked off Monday night with “FUSION”-a runway show and cocktail reception presented by KOTRA, the Korea Federation of Textile Industries, the CMC and Fashion Group International LA.

The show highlighted fashions from Fall-Winter 2009 collections from Korea. “FUSION was a great way to bring a number of organizations together and provide a fun atmosphere for exhibitors, attendees and industry people to be exposed to Korean Fashion, as well as the international textile trade industry,” said Joanne Lee Senior Vice President of CMC services.

Also a feature of the October 2008 LA Int'l Textile Show were the seminars for registered attendees including presentations from WGSN, Peclers Paris, Promostyl, Woolworks, Cotton Inc, Lenzing, Fashion Business Inc (FBI), Design Options, About Sources, Business Management Systems (BMS), and others.

Sally Lohan, the West Coast content director of WGSN commented, “WGSN's premiere at the LA International Textile Show is our first partnership with the CMC. In addition to the seminar, WGSN provided an exclusive WGSN Trend Report in the textile show directory. We enjoyed partnering with the CMC and look forward to working with them again.”

Exhibitors reported good traffic every day of the show, but Tuesday was especially successful. Nickolas Teague from Periscope said, “This show is going well, I have added two new accounts and a lot of the same accounts have returned… the best day for business was on Tuesday.”

Cricket Gresman of Scholler commented, “This is the second time I have been here…let me just say, it's a pleasure to be here and I am really enjoying the experience…plus I believe I have a great booth location, so business has been good”

John of Solstiss-Bucol, who also participated in one of the “Trend-Displays” in the Main Lobby said, “We have received excellent response to the Exhibit in the lobby, and have had many people come by the booth.”

A few of the top attendees at this LA Int'l Textile Show included, American Apparel, BCBGMAXAZRIA, C & C California, Juicy Couture, Mike & Chris, Pacific Sunwear, Paige Premium Denim, Poleci, Rojas, Seven for All Mankind, Tadashi, Tarina Tarantino, Three Dots, Vans Inc., Velvet by Graham & Spencer, Walt Disney Entertainment and many more.

“We are pleased with the success of this October's LA Int'l Textile Show. The fact that attendance was solid, the exhibitors were writing orders, and overall participants were happy, leaves everyone feeling hopeful about the future. If Textile is doing well, the rest of the manufacturing and apparel industries should follow,” Chelsea Matthews concluded.
