WHAT: PROJECT is excited to announce its evolution. The industry is
changing due to broad shifts in the global economy. There is a
significant need for a new and pervasive fashion entity, designed
to drive commerce, support creativity and business development
and to expose and educate the industry and the consumer. PROJECT
intends to rise to the occasion!
This evolution will commence with the Summer 2010, Las Vegas
show. Staying true to its authentic roots and heritage, PROJECT
once the definitive New York show, will now represent a broader
view of what it means to be American. The American dream is alive
and well and global brands/retailers are looking to American
fashion as a future growth driver. Modern Americana and all that
it stands for is not only relevant, but widely sought after.
Consumers now want value, quality, longevity, and a sense of
heritage and the fashion industry is responding.
PROJECT will implement innovative programs and easy-to-navigate
merchandising concepts to modernize the show and create an
overall sense of community among brands and retailers. It will
introduce digital initiatives to include a social media salon and
panel discussion, iPad lounge and mobile applications that
enhance the show experience for both brands and attendees. It
will unveil a speaker series to educate and expose the industry
to new ideas and points of view. It will create a stage to
showcase the brands of the future and the amazing individuals
behind them. And, PROJECT will launch a platform to bring
attention to global social causes and sustainable practices.
PROJECT Las Vegas (August 17-19) will set the tone for the
industry by showcasing the world's best designer denim and
advanced contemporary brands in an atmosphere that insures
collaboration, consideration and discovery. This season's show
will provide an exciting preview to the remarkable new PROJECT to
be unveiled in New York in January 2011.
