Project Continues to Be a Fashion Destination
Held in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Project ran Aug. 9–11 and showcased the new, now and next in men’s and women’s contemporary apparel, footwear and accessories.
The mammoth-sized show saw familiar exhibitors from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Nautica mixed in with specialty and local names Keith James, Bikini Beach Australia and Baja Llama. Speakers at the three-day event featured well-known faces including Kenneth Cole, Giuliana Rancic and Corey Stokes.
For buyers, Project offered premium denim, multinational apparel brands and promising startups that made passes to the event a must-have. There were also plenty of margin-building products with mid-market labels and an opportunity to connect and develop relationships with other buyers and exhibitors.
“Some of the new trends that we’re looking at are really chic and out of the box—something you don’t really see too often while you’re walking down the street,” said the owner and buyer of H.I.S. Boutique Andre Barkley.
