Brands, in order to gain exposure and find new stockists regularly attend tradeshows.
One of the best in the United States when it comes to clothing and accessories is (capsule).
There are also (capsule) tradeshows in Las Vegas, Berlin and Paris, which I will review later.
As I am not part of this industry (yet), and I do not live in NYC, the only way for people like me to get an insight of what’s going on in the business is to review each of the brands thanks to their websites (when they have one).
Of course, being able to see everything in a single place, talk to the designers, touch the products would be way better, but, hey, you have to do with the means at hand.
Here are my ten favorites, in no particular order.
