Dallas Market Center previews June Apparel & Accessories Show
The June Dallas Apparel & Accessories Show will feature brands, merchandise and new collections in permanent showrooms and temporaries on June 27-30.
“June is the show for trending styles and fresh new collections,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Our marketplace will be full of new looks to help independent retailers stand out and attract more business as consumers seek to express their sense of style.”
The show theme is “Soft Focus,” which emphasizes light fabrics, organic shapes, natural tones, vulnerability and fragility together with ethereal, dreamlike visuals creating a uniquely modern mythology, according to Dallas Market Center. Special displays, activations and events will call upon the theme to inspire retailers for the upcoming season.
Footwear is a growing category in Dallas, show executives said, and its location on the 10th floor allows for a greater number of brands. New and noteworthy brands for June include Bullboxer, Legend Footwear and Zee Alexis.
On the apparel and accessories front, the 13th floor of the temps will feature new brands, including Pissenlit, Bululu Resort, Nicola Bathie, Briton Court, and Modern Picnic.
Recently opened on the 15th floor is WBC Clothing from Los Angeles in WTC 15442. WBC is a multi-line contemporary showroom representing brands including Brave + True and Gold + Stone.
