Linda Lee of Splendid noted that "LA TEXTILE is one of the best textile shows" her design team regularly attends.  "We are looking for really beautiful fabrics that you usually find as imports but are developed domestically," she said, "and we are finding them at LA TEXTILE."

This season also boasted an increase in designers from out of town and Europe, including British designer Julia Chase of SW3UK, who said she "usually shops Europe but has found that LA TEXTILE has what she is looking for."

Among the new and returning European resources lauded at the Show were AB Creations, Bel Maille, Cafissi, Darquer, DG Textiles, Elliot Berman Textiles, Fox fabrics, Friday fabrics Ltd., HOH, Intesa C.

"This Show has been very good and we have been extremely busy" said Ricardo Carreira of D.C. Studio, Inc., a textile agent who represents over 11 European and Japanese mills. "We have been seeing a lot of designers from out-of-town, including Seattle and Vancouver, and many designers who are looking for novelty out of Europe. All in all this show has been very successful."  

Additionally, Nicolas Brun from France's AB Creations said "Yesterday was very busy, and today has been excellent, beyond my expectations. We have seen a lot of new buyers and out-of-towners which we really love."

The Lenzing Innovation Pavilion also returned this season with a successful turnout among their network of Lenzing affiliated exhibitors, including Pat Tabassi of premier mill Design Knit who reported that "this Show has been extremely busy from the beginning, which is a hopeful and nice sign of the direction this industry is going. We met a lot of new clients."

Also featured this Show was the Korean Pavilion presented by KOTRA, which showcased some of Korea's best mills and distributors in the Fashion Theater.

In addition to textile and design resources, the Show offered attendees a packed schedule of complimentary seminars that included Mudpie Ltd., Afingo, and WGSN.  Designers were also encouraged to explore the Trend Gallery, co-curated by WGSN and the CMC, featuring three main trends for F/w 12/13: Eco-hedonism, Radical Neutrality, and Hyperculture.

"This show exceeded our expectations and definitely reflects a continued upswing" said Oscar Rodriguez, LA TEXTILE Show Producer. "Traffic was steady throughout the show and we saw an increase in the quality of resources and attendees this season. Exhibitors were very happy."

Dates for the Spring/summer 2013 edition of LA TEXTILE Show are Monday-wednesday, March 26-28, 2012 at the California Market Center.
