London Edge Trade Show to Travel to Las Vegas During Magic

SHOW ON THE ROAD: The British trade show London Edge, which takes place twice a year, is headed to Las Vegas on Aug. 14 to 15 during Magic.
The trade show organizer said more than 50 lifestyle fashion brands will be showcased at Flamingo Hotel, in the middle of the Strip, for the first time, and some 60 percent of its booths have been allocated.
“Las Vegas has long been in our sights and now it’s a reality,” said London Edge managing director Carole Hunter. “Running at the same time as numerous other events around Las Vegas including Magic and Pool, we intend to provide the U.S. retailers unable to make the trip to London with a whole host of extra special reasons to visit Sin City.”
The trip to Las Vegas is part of London Edge’s efforts to position itself firmly as an international trade showcase. The organizer said that buyers from 26 countries travelled to the London show last season and met with exhibitors from 16 countries.
“With a dedicated focus on the lifestyle, youth culture, alternative and subculture markets, London Edge prides itself on attracting key buyers from all over the globe through its doors. London is the go-to fashion trade exhibition

Paris Trade Shows Challenged

PARIS — Following a strong January edition, March proved a calmer, more complex season for the main trade shows here: Tranoï, Woman, Paris sur Mode and Vendôme Luxury.
Attendance was down by 9 percent at Paris sur Mode, leading organizers to “rethink” the show in terms of dates and content, said show director Sophie Guyot.
Organizers of the Woman show observed buyers had already used up most of their apparel budgets on January pre-collections. With timing issues also impacting the October shows, the event plans to add a coed section to its Man show in June, according to co-director and founder Antoine Floch.
The new format will feature some 35 women’s and coed brands added onto roughly 70 men’s collections. WSN Développement, the owner of Paris sur Mode, also recently announced its own hybrid show for June.
The team running Woman and Man has “experienced an undeniable disruption in the current calendar,” the organizers said in a statement. The September-October edition has “suffered due to an overall drop in main collection budgets and an absence of motivated buyers….This new approach acknowledges the changes in the market,” they added, referencing the June proposal.
Tranoï, which shows women’s pre-collections in June, recorded “stable” attendance in March, and

Super Trade Show Highlights New Talents

MILAN — For buyers hunting fresh finds in the vast hubbub of Milan’s fashion system, the boutique-like Super scouting trade fair in Milan yielded gems of promising accessories and ready-to-wear for winter 2018-19, despite mixed morale among rising exhibitors anxious to be noticed.
Shoko Omura, a women’s clothing buyer for the Japanese high-end fashion giant United Arrows, was upbeat about what she discovered at the three-day trade show organized by Pitti Immagine, which closed here Feb. 26.
“Yes, they’ve done an effective job of scouting,” she said. She was particularly impressed by the six talents brought in from the Mercedes-Benz Tbilisi Fashion Week in Georgia, including the spare, bright, softly structured prêt-à-porter collection presented by Tamuna Ingorokva. Cream wool and blue leather outerwear mixed ethereal puckered, polka-dotted transparencies and voluminous, lightweight knits that turned imperfection into interest, like a loose white yarn knitted up the front of a scarlet sweater.
“Japanese customers don’t like too much heavy fabric. They are looking for lightness and clean designs,” Omura explained. She said Japanese women want trendy, sporty, feminine, versatile pieces — bright colors, skirts, blouses and dresses they can wear for both work and leisure. And the retail business in Japan is looking very promising. “Last year

Upbeat Mood Prevails at New York Men’s Trade Shows

NEW YORK — New year, bright outlook.
That sums up the mood of specialty stores shopping the men’s trade shows here. A strong end to 2017, a soaring stock market and some tempting merchandise options for fall all combined to boost retailers’ spirits.
“Holiday was great,” said Ken Giddon, president of Rothmans, which operates three men’s stores in New York. “There have been some weather difficulties in January but that’s OK. We had a surprisingly strong fall so inventories are not what we had expected. My mood is good — it’s an exciting time to be a retailer.”
He said he has been working more with his suppliers to create partnerships that benefit both. “Every conversation is not: ‘What are you selling and how much is it?’ But it’s, ‘How can we work together.’ That’s what it’s going to take to make the wholesale model work today and I actually enjoy making deals almost more than I enjoy looking at merchandise.”
That said, Giddon did manage to find several brands that he liked at the shows. “I’m surprised at how many great Scandinavian brands there are,” he said, pointing to the Scandinavian Man section at Project. He especially liked Hestra gloves and Cords trousers.

Aaron Levant Retires From the Trade Show Business

Aaron Levant is ready for a new challenge. Levant, who founded the Agenda trade show when he was 19, is retiring from the business.
“There wasn’t an exit plan. It wasn’t something that I’ve contemplated for a long time. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for the past two or three months,” said Levant as he was arriving at the final Agenda Long Beach trade show that he will manage in California. “For me, it’s all about continuing to learn new stuff and take on new challenges, and as far as events and trade shows, I’ve learned everything that I can.”
Levant started Agenda, which is dedicated to the skate, surf and streetwear categories, in the back of a Thai restaurant in Long Beach in 2003. In 2013, Reed Exhibitions acquired the show for an undisclosed sum and Levant stayed on to help grow Agenda, oversee other shows and launch new ones.
For the past few years, Levant, who has said he believes the trade show category is dead, has transitioned Agenda from a business-to-business show to a more consumer-facing event. He introduced Agenda Festival last year, which included a two-day trade show followed by a one-day festival that was open to the

Wu Wear is officially back.
Wu-Tang Clan’s apparel line, one of the first created by hip-hop artists, will reenter the market and is showing at the Agenda trade show in Las Vegas this week.
“We never stopped producing it. We just took a more underground, boutique approach to try and figure out the new business,” said Oliver Grant, who started the line in 1995. “Now we know the lay of the land and how to attack it again.”
Grant and Robert Diggs, best known as RZA, who founded the rap group, have teamed up with Live Nation Merchandise to produce the collection. They will create a capsule line for holiday and release a full fashion assortment for spring 2018, which will mark Wu-Tang’s 25th anniversary.
“Our brand is at a legacy level,” asserted Diggs. “I think about Bill Blass, Lee or Calvin Klein and they were new at one point and became legacy brands. We have an opportunity for our brand to stand alongside Tommy Hilfiger. We are happy Live Nation recognized that and is helping us put the brand out there.”

The unisex collection will retail from $ 35 to $ 160 and include older designs and new pieces. The assortment, which will be designed by

Independents Upbeat at New York Men’s Trade Shows

NEW YORK — Retailers at the men’s trade shows here this week had one primary category on their minds: sportswear.
Gone are the days when buyers scoured the fairs for new tailored clothing labels. As stores, particularly independents, continue to battle a disinterested consumer, macroeconomic factors and the growing power of Amazon, executives were mainly looking to pick up new casualwear brands to complement their existing offerings.
The good news is that the formula seems to be working: Most independents interviewed said business has picked up slightly and they’re keeping their fingers crossed the trend will continue.
Ken Giddon, president of New York’s Rothmans, noted that thanks to a successful pop-up with Psycho Bunny — “our best pop-up ever” — the store had “a really good June.”
“We’re flexible enough to keep bobbing and weaving,” he added.
For the men’s specialty store, that means de-emphasizing tailored clothing and keeping customers interested by featuring a rotating series of pop-up shops. “It’s part of our model now,” Giddon said. “It works to always have something fresh.”
He said “tailored clothing is becoming a smaller part of the business, but we’re growing other parts,” especially sportswear. He especially liked Stitch Note’s short-sleeve wovens, Benson and Rodd & Gunn’s sportswear,

Buyers Seek Standouts With Identity at Paris Men’s Trade Shows

PARIS — It was all about having a strong identity at the recent spring 2018 men’s trade shows here. Homespun, cultural references, vintage and surf styles and streetwear were selling well, with buyers seeking standout items and new discoveries to complement their core designer offering and differentiate themselves, rather than seeking out specific trends.
“Trends are hard to build a business around these days,” observed Chris Thomas, director of retail for Melbourne, Australia’s Service Denim Stores. “We’re looking for accessories to accentuate our core offer that have a point of uniqueness in the Australian market,” he said. “The ability to be unisex is important, too.”
Indeed, more and more brands were showing what they described as “unisex” collections as the trend for outsize gender-neutral garments continues to gain traction. Labels that tapped into heritage styles and techniques, especially from Japan and France, were also popular, as were new takes on performance wear.
Brands showing at Tranoï, Man and Capsule, held over the weekend during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, said foot traffic had been relatively slow, although key buyers had walked through, with a strong presence from Asian, especially Japan, and U.K.-based retailers.

A King’s Trade

A King’s Trade


The powder-packed thirteenth installment in a classic naval adventure series. Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, is just discovering the truth of the old adage that “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!”After a bout of Yellow Fever decimated the crew of Lewrie’s HMS Proteus in 1797, it had seemed like a knacky idea to abscond with a dozen slaves from a coastal Jamaican plantation to help man his frigate, a grand jape on their purse-proud master and a righteous act, to boot. But now. two years later, the embittered Beauman clan at last suspects Lewrie of the deed. Slave-stealing is a hanging offense, and suddenly Alan Lewrie’s neck is at risk of a fatal stretching! Patrons finagle an official escape from Jamaica to England, where the nefarious and manipulative master Foreign Office spy, Zachariah Twigg, is just too nice and helpful to be credited on his behalf, arranging a long voyage even further out of the law’s reach, to Cape Town and India, as escort to an East India Company convoy led by one of Lewrie’s old captains, who still despises him worse than cold, boiled mutton! To the Cape of Good Hope, where French cruisers prowl, where a British circus and theatrical troupe joins the convoy, just teeming with tempting female acrobats, nubile young bareback riders, and alluring “actresses” like the seductive but deadly archer, Eudoxia Durschenko! It will take all Lewrie’s shrewd guile, wit, low cunning, and steely self-control to worm his way out of trouble, this time, and keep his breeches chastely buttoned up to avoid even more troubles. or will he?

Buyers Upbeat at Paris Men’s Trade Shows

PARIS — With Japanese buyers back in force, a positive energy pulsed through the men’s trade fairs, Capsule, Man and Tranoi, held here in tandem with the men’s runway shows. While spends were flat on-year, buyers’ moods were upbeat.
“This is a good time in men’s wear,” said Wanda Colon, chief merchandising officer at Unkwn, an urban concept store targeting Florida’s 18-25 set.
“This show [Capsule] is a good integration of what’s happening in fashion now – a mix of very high with accessible, what big box stores are trying to do,” she continued. “To cultivate this youthful feeling, not necessarily young, but savvy, very active on social media. A lot of brand energy right now is coming from that. And stores are chasing these young, alternative independents because they’ve seen the energy and buying power of this customer.”
Trading on the youth influence as a launchpad, Capsule showed four labels voted into the show by followers of Highsnobiety.com. Tranoi curated Atelier, a space for young designers, at its inaugural Carreau de Temple show.
Wish-listing “craftsmanship, innovation and scarcity” for Magasin, the men’s concept store which opened in Los Angeles last March, Josh Peskowitz singled out ongoing proportion play, an outdoors direction and layering,

The “People Power” Family Superbook: Book 13. Shopping Guide (Online Shopping, Product Reviews, Department Stores, Trade Shows, Closeout – Wholesale, Factory Outlets)


In my opinion, unless you’re a total introvert, agoraphobic, disabled or too lazy to leave the house, your best bet to buy most things you need is locally. Go to the Yellow Pages, read your local newspapers, drive around the shopping areas, go to local free ad websites and talk to people you know about what you need. I generally buy most of my stuff from the big department stores but if I need something like furniture, I’ll check out the furniture stores on the poor side of the town because the prices for the same goods are often much cheaper than a store in the higher class part of town plus you can often haggle with the owner on a cash deal. By shopping on the poor side of town at supermarkets for food, you can often save several dollars on a load of groceries. Beyond that, I generally go to the thrift stores a few times a year to buy t-shirts, clothes and anything else that strikes my fancy as I look around.
