MAGIC Market Week Round Up: Sourcing at MAGIC


Sourcing at MAGIC is the one and only place where you can reach out to manufacturers from all over the world - 43 different countries to be exact! This year I attended numerous educational seminars and took some notes to share with you all. Have a fashion company or looking to start one? Keep on reading to find out what's trending in the sourcing world.

For fall/winter 2013-2014, Trendstop's Footwear & Accessories forecast included modern empress, sophisticated mint, python, cowboy, and animal clasp purses. Don't know why but I'm kind of excited to see more python print this season! What about you?

These upcoming fall/winter trends were popular on many of the runway fashion shows. Seen here is the modern empress look on the catwalk. I'm picturing lots of brocade prints for later this year.

Another thing to remember? Deborah from All Saints (far right) made an important point that "where we source our products changes people's lives" at the Design, Style, and Sourcing seminar. So what does that mean? Choose a good place you want to source because you will also be supporting their economy. This is a new trend many companies are picking up on quickly.

Save the Earth! With all the hype about being eco-friendly, Shop Eco Bag provides reusable bags for various types of industries. They are a great way to create branding and make great promo items for those "gift with purchase" transactions.

As for the scoop on Fashion Snoops? Their S/S '14 Style Guide forecasted glam grunge, mod world, provincial picnic, and spice trail. So if you're creating a line, be sure to keep these spring/summer trends in mind for the near future.
