Boutiques, Activewear Retailers, CMC, Shape Tradeshow March 2015

The Fall 15 Los Angeles Fashion Market took place at the California Market Center (CMC) from March 16-19.

"This was the best I have ever done at SELECT," says Leslie Francesca, owner of Northern California based jewelry company. The line features handmade druzy gemstone pieces and has become a quick SELECT favorite among retailers and resorts across the country. "I wrote more orders in the first two hours on day one than last market and saw many out-of-towners including a great boutique in Nebraska and a large resort in St. John."

The debut of SHAPE Athleisure and Lifestyle Tradeshow was also a success. While many exhibitors were busy writing orders, others were gaining exposure and creating relationships with gym owners, athleisure magazines, and lifestyle boutiques.

What is Size XO Fashion

What is size XO fashion?

OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO.  It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed.  Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist.  I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL.  The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same.  Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all.  It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women.  It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size.

WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE January 2015

The date is set.

The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles. 
In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business. 

The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.

By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout.

The plan is set out in a star sha…
