Designers & Agents® is an independent, international trade fair for hundreds of collections and thousands of retailers who define the direction in fashion and life style. Identifying emerging talent and creating an intimate, synergistic environment that fosters relationships between designers and buyers, each of D&A’s shows in New York, Los Angeles and Paris (which typically attract 3,000 retail and media visitors) are pre-edited, art-directed, and merchandised to create a sense of camaraderie and discovery. D&A features brands from the United States, Europe, Japan and around the World that are the influencers in the advanced contemporary market, the segment of the women’s market that continues to experience consistent growth.
Pre-registration is not necessary as our on-site process is quick and easy. A buyer or visitor must simply present their business card at the registration desk upon entering the show site.
D&A provides a shuttle service, for the use of our buyers and visitors, between our show spaces at Starrett-Lehigh Center 601 W. 26th St and Center 548 548 W 22nd during the Fall and Spring seasons and to and from other trade fairs. For more information please contact the D&A office.
