Texworld USA partners with Manufacture NY

Texworld USA, the apparel fabrics show in North America, has partnered with Manufacture NY, a fashion incubator for emerging designers. The partnership is expected to provide designers with an opportunity to source fabrics and speak with Manufacture NY about their products and services offered.

“Our goal is to be able to provide all the necessary resources for our attendees at Texworld USA. By partnering with Manufacture NY we will be able to provide our visitors with an interactive show floor and for our emerging designers, a premium resource on how to start their brand,” commented John P. Gallagher, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt.

Interactive and responsive

Bob Bland, Founder and CEO of Manufacture NY said: “Texworld USA's commitment to providing the next generation of fashion designers with low minimum and domestic textile sourcing options makes them an ideal partner for Manufacture New York. We look forward to working with them as the trade show floor becomes more interactive and responsive to 21st century material sourcing needs.”

Manufacture NY will be providing interactive elements to the show floor such as a sewing section with current members creating original designs as well as mannequins displaying finished garments.
