SLNY had the exciting opportunity to attend two of New York’s most popular wholesale fabric shows. At these shows, fabric vendors can sell their latest collections to designers and companies all over the world. From shiny metallics to camouflage prints, check out Sam’s favorite fabrics from each of the tradeshows: Texworld, and PV!
Texworld USA: The first stop on our fabric adventure. Texworld was, in fact, a world of its own. Hosted in the spacious Javit Center, Texworld included a multitude of fabric companies from around the globe. We spent most of our time in the secluded inspiration section (shown below), where there were displays of different fabrics based on unique themes and upcoming trends. Check out the pictures below for a glimpse into the inspiration we received from this fabric show.
Premiere Vision New York: The next day, SLNY headed to PV to see a different selection of fabric companies. The inspiration section at this show was larger, having way more collections of trends. Sam’s favorite inspiration of fabric was called “Constellation,” and her favorite piece from this collection was this champagne and clear sequin by the fabric company, Terra Optima.
It was so exciting to see fashion in its very first stages of creation. Having the opportunity to see so many different types of fabric has inspired us to maintain our creativity as we move forward with new collections and trends! Both of these tradeshows have reminded us at SLNY that fashion, in its truest form, is art.
