Top Trends from West Coast Trade Shows

A convention was held in Las Vegas, where major retail buyers from around the globe viewed Spring / Summer 2013 collections with the hottest styles and trends.

Runway shows, along with designer and brand presentations were showcased to retailers including such recognizable names as The Men’s Wearhouse Inc. and Macy’s Inc. Many factors come into play when these retailers are choosing collections for their retail stores and websites. Current best sellers, price points, target market, as well as the latest fabric techniques, are all considerations when making the buy for the season.

Standout trends from the Las Vegas trade shows include; colored denim, “athleisure” and pops of colors.

Many buyers and retail executives noted that tank tops were the most in demand product this season.  They also shared the product categories they would be purchasing for their companies for Spring 2013, which includes tailored suits, shirts, neckwear, shoes, slim fit tuxedos, tops (collegiate-inspired looks) and updated sport coats. Other trends in apparel are athleisure (fashion lingo for active-inspired sportswear), and printed frocks. Furthermore, many retailers believe transition pieces are important so customers can purchase a look, and have confidence it can make it through more than one season. Colors trends for Spring 2013 collections are neon accents, neutrals, and white. Fabrics to look for when buying your spring wardrobe: linen blends, spring suede, performance fabrics and denim (both colored and waxed). Be confident in adding the new colors and fabrications to your wardrobe for the Spring 2013 season.
