For those of you in the fashion/streetwear industry- you may be familiar with tradeshows and their importance to a company. From the number of sales you make to the new buyers you meet with- these shows are meant to improve your presence in the industry and open up new streams of revenue for each participating brand.
With that said- the tradeshow season usually kicks off right before the start of a new season. Brands will then showcase new collections & begin their circuit around the country. So, we've been busy all week getting the latest info on whats going to be hot for FW10 and meeting with new and established brands at the show.
As far as I can see- there seems to be absolutely no shortage of plaid, everyone is vulcanizing their shoes and surf products are way more popular than I ever knew. Sorry there isn't much detail to my assessment- but it's all true. In the next few days I'll be posting some pics, but in the meantime feel free to check out some of the participating brands below:
