“Texworld USA’s 10th anniversary edition had a great turnout of visitors,” said Jennifer Bacon, Texworld USA Show Director. “We saw visitors from large, well-known brands such as Macy’s, Marc Jacobs, Coach, Ralph Lauren, Lord & Taylor, and Target, as well as many new faces from smaller but fast-rising start-up apparel brands. This just speaks to the vast and varied mix of product we offer -- there’s something for everyone at Texworld USA.”

Both seminars and boot camp sessions proved to be a big draw for senior attendees interested in trends, sustainability, and new fibre development, as well as for small brands just getting started on the road to building an apparel brand. Close to 800 visitors attended the 20 sessions over three show days.
