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.
