The Texworld Trade show is a lot of fun. It’s a very special place where one can quickly learn what is happening in the fashion industry at the seminars and from each other.
We also have a chance to visit.
On the left Tracey Lenahan, Advertising Sales manager at Threads and I greet each other live for the first time.
I’m very happy to see Gladys again (above on the right). I wish I had taken some pictures of the jewelry Gladys was wearing. She designs and handcrafts Asanti’s Jewels, one-of-a-kind contemporary jewelry designs.
The displays of fabrics and clothing were from all over the world. The booths were extensive. Much was from Asia.
On the left a salesperson from Changle Fumeilai knitting Co., Ltd displays knitted lace for me to photograph.
On the right Hanbo Textile, a producer of embroidery and lace, presents an unusual display.
Gladys was manning the booth alone that day, as one of her co-workers was sick and the other had to attend a meeting. So I helped her out by giving her a much needed break away from the stand. I didn’t sell any books. But I did point out, in this photo, the book that started the Fashiondex.com business, The Apparel Design and Production Hand Book.
About Fashiondex: The Fashiondex, Apparel Industry Publishers, was started in 1992 by a fashion designer [Andrea Kennedy] who had arranged her Rolodex into types of fabrics and trims, instead of from A to Z. When she noticed that everyone where she worked was using her Rolodex when they needed to do their research and sourcing needs, she saw there was a need for a similar product. Fashiondex was formed, that “Rolodex” was reproduced in book form, and several months later the first “Fashiondex” was produced.
