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. CMC Showrooms and exhibitors from SELECT Better Women's and Contemporary Tradeshow, TRANSIT LA Shoe Show, and SHAPE Athleisure and Lifestyle Tradeshow reported new accounts opened, as well as steady traffic from buyers and companies placing orders for immediates.

Attending retailers included Kitson on Robertson, Just Fab, Fred Segal, LF Stores, Lulu's Fashion Lounge, Modcloth, Shopbop, Red Balloon, M Fredric, Gisele Tune, Revolve Clothing, ASOS, Seven 7 Jeans, Wet Seal/Arden B, Apricot Lane, Atelier Femme, Four Seasons Hotel Beverly Wilshire, Wynn Las Vegas, Zulilily, Isetan Dept Stores, Forever 21, Brentwood Country Club, Marshall Retail Group, Ambiance Stores, Evelyn & Arthur Stores, Sugar Stores, Suo, Tootsies, XTC on Melrose and many more.

"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.
