Prints Hot at Moda; Denim & Faux-Fur Trends Seen at Fame

Prints were the star attraction at Moda, while denim was still the go-to item at Fame, although possible early trends include non-stretch denim fabrications and faux-fur body-lined outerwear.
Both shows were held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, which began on Sunday and runs through today. The vendor base for Moda seemed smaller than usual, but that’s likely due to August being when buyers are eyeing mostly immediate deliveries. Typically the much larger Moda show is held next month at Javits. The opposite was true for Fame this year, as the vendor base for the younger contemporary marketplace seems to have grown from May’s show. It too has a follow-up show in September, also at Javits.
One Moda vendor that was catching some attention from buyers was Moonlight Exclusive, which featured a number of black jackets with Japanese-inspired prints along one side. The jackets were mostly rayon and acetate, although polyester was incorporated in some of the fabrications. Also popular were jackets in the black-white-red combinations, as well as black jackets with red trim, according to owner Connie Pae. Wholesale price points ranged from $59 up to $129. Buyers at the show who stopped by were mostly boutique owners
