It’s still early October but the Project show is already looking ahead to 2023.
The event, produced by Informa Markets, has announced its dates and locations for the first three months of the new year.
Project New York will return to the Iron 23 space in Chelsea (where it relocated in July) Jan. 24-25 and showcase men’s and gender-fluid apparel, footwear and accessories brands.
Informa Markets for Change (IMFC), the two-year-old ongoing initiative designed to foster allyship, inclusion and equality within the fashion community through programs that support, nurture and elevate minority-owned, women-owned and LGBTQIA+-owned fashion brands, will continue to sponsor an Incubator Program to elevate and support minority-owned brands. Tailoring brand B|M|C and menswear line Todd Patrick were included in the program.
Project Las Vegas will run at the Las Vegas Convention Center Feb. 13-15 and feature contemporary men’s and women’s apparel, footwear and accessories. It will run parallel to other Informa Markets events Sourcing at Magic and Magic Las Vegas, both of which will also take place at the convention center. The shows will continue to combine live and digital events and produce educational materials such as brand and buyer guides, trend reports and business resources that are available online.
The event drew more than 36,000 registered attendees and 470 exhibitors in February 2022.
Project is also revisiting Japan’s fashion capital and will run at the Tokyo International Forum March 15-16 with retailers from department stores, specialty stores and regional retail stores from all over Japan such as United Arrows, Beams and Isetan, the U.S., Europe and Asia. Project Tokyo launched in March 2019.
The dates of the summer 2023 editions of Project will be released later next year.
