"Dedicated to the modern woman and wanting to show off all the facets of fashion, the Tranoï New York trade show will particularly highlight its avant-garde brands, such as Barbara I Gongini, leather brand VSP, Isaac Reina, Laura B Collection Particulière and the very graphic universe of Pierre-Louis Mascia.
