Designers & Agents Trade Show Founder Pivots to Cannabis With The Plant Lore Agency

After more than three decades in the fashion industry, most notably as the cofounder of the Designers & Agents trade show, Barbara Kramer is pivoting to cannabis.
Kramer has opened The Plant Lore, a full-service agency offering branding and product development, sales representation and retail support. Based in Los Angeles, she and her team are representing 10 high-end brands making CBD-infused products, including Love Lynn Botanicals (everything from sugar scrub to female lubricant); Hello Goldie (tea); Mimoi (color face foundation with SPF); Ondo (tinctures), and Beboe (CBD vape pens). They have partnered with Wunderlich Kaplan Communications to offer brands public relations support.
“I have always been interested in coloring outside the lines,” said Kramer, whose entrepreneurial spirit has moved her from New York to L.A. several times, while she was working as a showroom owner and sales agent for such fashion brands as Tocca, Jean Paul Gaultier and Petit Bateau. She and Ed Mandelbaum started D&A in 1996, focusing on the advanced contemporary category, and expanded the fair beyond New York and L.A. to Paris and Tokyo. Over the years, she’s produced runway shows, collaborated with the CFDA on events and been a buyer for John Fluevog shoes. Three years ago, when

U.K. Department for International Trade Brings British Designers to Fred Segal

The latest iteration of the U.K. Department for International Trade’s #FashionIsGreat campaign brings British fashion to Sunset Boulevard.
The organization selected six British fashion brands to show at a temporary shop within Fred Segal’s Sunset Boulevard store, set to run through Aug. 7.
The group of brands consists of women’s lines Rixo and Belize, men’s labels Oliver Spencer and E. Tautz and accessories from Stow and The Cambridge Satchel Company. The pop-up space was designed with the help of Agency TK.
“They’re brands that fit with the style and ethos of Fred Segal. They needed to be the right fit and vibe for the Fred Segal brand,” U.K. Department for International Trade Regional Director Tim Crouch explained of how the pop-up shop’s brand roster was selected. “They had to be able to sell inventory while also not overlapping with other activities.”
The designers also had an already established relationship with the Department for International Trade, Crouch added, seeking the organization’s assistance in expanding their presence specifically on the West Coast.
The marketing program #FashionIsGreat represents the fashion arm to the department’s broader Great marketing program that was born out of marketing efforts around the 2012 Olympics in a bid to raise the profile of British

New York Trade Shows Set Uncertain Tone for Season

The rollicking situation with the U.S. government and the subsequent economic uncertainties are giving specialty stores some angst about their prospects in 2019.
With that as the backdrop, retailers were cautious as they shopped the trade shows in New York City last month. They scoured the aisles of Project, Liberty Fairs and Man searching for those special items that would draw customers into their stores. And luckily, they were able to find some things that fit the bill — updated knitwear, outerwear and accessories in particular — from some off-the-radar vendors with a creative bent.
“The fourth quarter overall was good, but the last two weeks of the year with the government shutdown and the market tanking took some steam out of our results,” said Ken Giddon, president of Rothmans.
Although he remains positive, Giddon said he’s expecting a “fight” to hit last year’s numbers, especially as traditional tailored clothing sales continue to drop. “There are a lot fewer suits being bought so we have to find dollars to make up for that,” he said.
And so Giddon, who admits that he loves “the hunt” at trade shows, pored through the hundreds of brands on display to find those replacement dollars. The good news,

White Milano Trade Show Continues to Highlight Sustainable Fashion

MILAN — Sustainability was a key theme at the press conference held on Wednesday here to present the White Milano trade show running Feb. 22 to 25.

The project will allow communication with the younger generations, who are “more and more attentive to the traceability of fashion products. We believe it’s also a chance for buyers to renew their retail offer in a conscious way.”
“We are living in a moment of revolution of the fashion system, where we must run to realign the focus of our activities with the real needs of an exhausted planet, an exploited society and of individual people,” said Ward, pointing to a need to follow the example of other industries such as food and automotive, and “make sustainability fashionable.

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.

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
