NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The NY Women’s September Market, opening Saturday, September 15th through Monday, September 17th, is an elevated fashion showcase comprised of five unique shows: COTERIE, SOLE COMMERCE, Fame, Moda and Sourcing@COTERIE. Held at the Javits Center in New York, this marketplace features the most sought-after contemporary and progressive designers and brands in women’s apparel, footwear, accessories and sourcing.
This season, COTERIE, in partnership with ReMode, has proudly collaborated with the United Nations to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals’ Conscious Fashion Campaign. The initiative aims to harness the power of retailers, media and celebrities to embrace impact-driven fashion brands to create positive change and drive conscious consumerism.
Show-goers can explore the range of Conscious Fashion Campaign brands including AMUR, DefineMe, ELK, Legami, Liverpool Jeans, Skazi, Washed Away, and B. Yellowtail, in an installation within the Crystal Palace. A large part of the initiative is supported by SheTrades, an organization that enables women entrepreneurs to improve the quality of their products and services. SheTrades was instrumental in introducing female-led African brands including AAKS, Afrodesiac, COCOLILI, Maki Oh, Mar Y Sol, and Beauty@COTERIE brand, R&R Luxury to the floor.
“We wanted to provide the fashion community with an experience that highlights the sustainable business practices and production methods of designers and brands at COTERIE. We are featuring a selection of brands; from woman-owned businesses in developing countries, to large US-based brands with domestic and overseas manufacturing. All have provided us with information regarding how they are addressing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We are proud to showcase their achievements, and the progress we are seeing in the fashion industry. It’s been a pleasure working alongside SheTrades and the United Nations Conscious Fashion Campaign team to debut this at Coterie,” states Women’s Fashion Director, Danielle Licata.
