Informa Markets Fashion has cancelled its flagship New York-based fashion trade show, Coterie which includes Fame, Moda, Sole Commerce and the previously rescheduled Project and Children’s Club, which was scheduled to take place from September 22 to 24 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
The Coterie team will instead focus on providing an opportunity for business continuity via its new digital trade event, which will begin on September 1.
The Coterie New York marketplace draws a large audience of international and domestic brands, retailers and key industry executives. Given continued uncertainty around international travel and border restrictions, as well as the importance of health and safety, Coterie has decided to shift its focus this fall toward its digital trade event in partnership with NuOrder.
As reported last month, the partnership is part of a longer-term plan to support a synergistic physical and digital future for the fashion wholesale industry. This season’s digital trade event, running from Sept. 1 to Nov. 1, is an opportunity for continued commerce for the New York marketplace despite challenges around the physical event this year.
