Coterie New York to kick off September 18
Tradeshow Coterie New York is set to take place in the Big Apple this month, with a schedule that will bring thousands of top-tier retailers and premium brands together to display upcoming collections.
Informa Markets Fashion, the organizer behind the fashion industry event, revealed on Wednesday show details for its next edition slated to be held at the Javits Center in New York City, from September 18 to 20.
Ushering is a "new era" for Coterie, the trade show will feature three immersive experience areas, centered around sustainability, technology, and community, which will come together to create a living representation of the current and future state of fashion.
For sustainability, Coterie partnered with Arcadia Earth and Amer_ican to shine a light on the impact humans are having on the environment and call into question how far the industry will go to protect it.
