• Retailers at Designers & Agents Seek Out Distinct Styles

    7 monthes ago - By WWD

    Standing out from the competition is more essential than ever, according to retailers attending the Designers & Agents show last week in New York.
    Housed in two locations on West 26th Street, the trade show offered a selection of sportswear, accessories, footwear and other items.
    In search of accessories and tried-and-true contemporary labels like Hartford Paris and Bellerose, Haley McMahon was buying for Mercantile in Portland, Ore.
