The 2021 Summer Edition of the New York Textiles Shows—Texworld New York City, Apparel Sourcing New York City and Home Textiles Sourcing —will be held with a new sourcing concept in a new location. As per Sourcing Journal, the events will not have any physical exhibitors at the Starrett-Lehigh Building in West Chelsea from July 20 to 22. The innovative sourcing showroom will help exhibitors showcase their textiles and finished goods without physically being present at the event.
Curated by New York-based trend agency, The Doneger Group, the Sourcing Showroom will be transformed into a modern gallery of textiles and finished apparel, highlighting the Fall-Winter 2022-23 trends. Visitors will explore thousands of fabrics, apparel and accessories from global suppliers in more than 25 countries, including India, Pakistan, Turkey, China, Portugal, Taiwan and South Korea.
Each textile will be equipped with a QR code directly linking the buyer to the exhibitor’s virtual space where an immediate conversation can be made with the supplier and a more detailed list of product information can be found.
The well-known educational programs, the Lenzing Seminar Series and Textile Talks, will remain an integral part of the show, as well as the highly regarded Trend session with Kai Chow of The Doneger Group. The programs will be streamed live at the Starrett-Lehigh Building during show hours.
