COTERIE, the premier global event within the New York marketplace that bridges women’s apparel and accessory designers to the international ‘Who’s Who’ of retailers, opened the February show with its first-ever live photo shoot, and a series panels covering ethical and sustainable fashion, the power of brick and mortar, and the business of influencers.
This season, COTERIE produced its first-ever live photo shoot featuring upcoming styles and trends from the FW ’19 season. The two-day shoot, styled by William Graper and Jeff Lasota, exclusively showcased apparel and accessories from the show’s current designers and brands. Attendees experienced the behind-the-scenes production of a real-time editorial shoot including live styling, photography by Mani Zarrin, model grooming, and photo editing.
In addition, COTERIE hosted a series of panels dedicated to discussing sustainability, retail, and influencer relations with some of the industry’s top voices. Panels included “The Daily x COTERIE Fashion Influencer Panel”, Conscious Fashion Campaigns’ “The Future of Fashion” panel, and “The Power of Brick & Mortar” presented by Sofia Karvela of Le Board.
