UBM’s N.Y. Fashion Shows Add POOLTRADESHOW, BLUE@Intermezzo to Line Up
UBM Fashion has added two shows - POOLTRADESHOW and BLUE@Intermezzo – to its NY Women's May marketplace, for a total of six shows: Accessorie Circuit, Intermezzo Collections, Accessories the Show, Fame and MODA, opening May 7-9 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center
BLUE@Intermezzo, the first-ever platform dedicated to showcasing premium denim brands, will exhibit between the major women's fashion markets.
"Retailers rely on Intermezzo Collections to circle back around after the larger shows and regional markets to sharpen their assortments, address of-the-moment trends and fill in their inventory to carry them through the rest of the season. BLUE@Intermezzo is the perfect opportunity for denim brands to distribute their replenishment inventory as well as pick up new business," said Peter Berta, director Accessorie Circuit/Intermezzo Collections.
POOLTRADESHOW, described as “a breeding ground for art-inspired and independent fashion brands”, will serve a carefully merchandised show and features everything from unique apparel and accessories to lifestyle, apothecary, home goods and stationary, introducing a unique selection to the east coast market.
Exhibiting brands include YRN, JOYN, Wicked Heathens, and Blue Planet.
"We couldn't be more excited about offering the POOL experience in NY to brands that have not been able to make it to Vegas yet, or to brands looking for a unique and affordable show like ours on the east coast. In addition, retailers will have a fresh opportunity to shop what is happening now and next," said Jason Peskin, POOLTRADESHOW show director.
As an added benefit to UBM brands and retailers, POOLTRADESHOW's SWIMLESSONS now will serve as an educational forum for new and established brands across all UBM Fashion's portfolio.
The educational series presents influential and experienced leaders in the industry sharing knowledge and experiences on how emerging designers can establish themselves in the competitive market.
