Can you feel the Miami heat? ATSM is almost here! In less than a month, the halls of the Mana Wynwood Convention Center will be buzzing for the inaugural Apparel Textile Sourcing MIAMI show. Hundreds of international apparel and textile manufacturers, buyers, designers and more will be walking and exhibiting throughout the showroom halls.
At the show, there will be participation from countries from both near and far. It’s going to be a global affair with nations: China, India, Bangladesh, the U.S., Turkey, Pakistan, Mexico and many from Central and South America, will make up the colorful list of more than 2,500 attendees. In addition, there will be an estimated 200 exhibitors displaying apparel, textiles, fabric, fashion and accessories.
Yes, We’re Name-Dropping
ATSM is an incredible resource for both small and large companies to network and make new business connections with others in the industry. A local Miami designer wants to produce domestically? Got it. A Chinese textile company is looking for American brands who need fabric? Done. The list (and possibilities) are endless of what magic can happen when you put these people in a room together.
It’s a well-known struggle that many small brands struggle to find factories that work with smaller minimums or for designers to get their clothing in front of big-name buyers. ATSM has made it their mission to break down the barriers between large and small, domestic and international. This is why it is so exciting to see some of the biggest names in apparel have registered for the show. Zara, has been around as long as we can remember, producing cutting-edge menswear and womenswear, will be there. Another great, Perry Ellis, will be there as well. This is a great resource for those in menswear. The brand played with pattern and proportions before that was the norm, and they changed the industry. Also, all-American legacy brand Gap will be in attendance. They have been a staple since the year that man first landed on the moon! And, they’ve been helping families dress themselves in quality and affordable clothing ever since.
