COTERIE New York Wraps February Edition with Focus on Fashion Technology and Sustainability

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 19, 2024 / COTERIE New York , the premier contemporary and advanced contemporary women’s wholesale fashion event took place February 20-22 at the Jacob Javits Center. The three-day showcase saw premier brands, retailers and thought leaders engage in brand discovery and retailer engagement.

Retailers ranging from single store boutiques, online retailers to big box shopped new collections from over 750 contemporary and advanced contemporary brands in women’s apparel, accessories, beauty and footwear. Exhibiting brands included Simon Miller, Toccin, MOUSSY Vintage, Halfdays and Unreal Fur.

COTERIE is known for showcasing a robust line up of global brands. This season over 33 percent of the show represented international designers from countries including Italy, Korea and Türkiye.

“It feels like COTERIE is back in a big way. The denim area has been busy and full of energy, and it’s great to be a part of that. We’ve seen a good number of high-level retailers that we’ve been going after… Last season was the first time we came back for COTERIE, and this season was an even better show. It has been a great success. The New York market is another point of engagement with…the best retailers on the East Coast. For us, it’s an important part of getting our business in front of them,” commented Sean Naughton, National Sales Director, Wrangler & Lee.

This season featured purposeful installations exploring the role of technology and sustainability in fashion, with artificial intelligence (AI) bots on the show floor available to give information about COTERIE, and the AI Technology Lounge, which allowed visitors the opportunity to explore AI and augmented reality, highlighting how machine learning and virtual reality technologies are reshaping fashion. COTERIE partnered with advocate Marina Testino and fashion stylist Barbara Velez to craft “Layers of Sustainability,” an art installation featuring sustainable trends and exploring future innovations in sustainability through an immersive activation brought to life by Arcadia Earth.

On-site programming presented by MMGNET, dissected the results from the 2024 Fashion Consumer Outlook Report, exploring the intricacies of consumer purchasing habits. The full report will be available this April.
