PREFACE is a fabric trend show that brings innovative concepts and sourcing together, presenting the apparel industry with a showcase of textiles that offer a better alternative to conventional materials. The boutique style of PREFACE provides a curated selection of exhibitors, offering attendees an inspirational and personal experience.

PREFACE launched in 2018 with the goal of building relationships and creating a space to inspire the fashion community in a new way. Gathering a small group of like-minded makers & suppliers with a focus on sustainability innovation was integral to the idea. As the name suggests, PREFACE is about the beginning — a place to find the best materials needed to begin your design story. The show offers suppliers & makers, conversations with industry innovators, an interactive forum featuring color & trend direction, and the space to meet and connect with others.

PREFACE presents two shows per year, one in

Los Angeles and one in New York. Our next show is July 17&18 in NYC. See more details here
