2019 New York Fashion Event Trends

Gender Interest

As you'd expect the fashion industry is dominated by female consumers. However men are becoming more involved in this category.

Age Interest

The majority of people looking at the site are interested in sample sales, which explains why the most prominent age group is 25 to 34. The younger generation are looking for new, hip and cult brands with low price points, the older generations look for more established brands, social events, exhibitions, education and networking.

Geographic Interest

Most of the visitors to New York events are in the USA. However there is a healthy interest from countries closely connected to the USA like Canada and Europe, and even further afield from people in countries like Japan and China, who research fashion events before they travel to the city.

Day of Week

New York's fashionistas tend to check in mid-week at work to plan their weekend, while they're more likely to be out and about on Saturday and Sunday rather than online

Time of Day

People often check early in the day to catch the newest listings and plan their day - or in the evening to browse and discover new interesting events and brands.

Types of Events

In the industry the focus of events is still shifting stock - and the hottest way for brands to engage face to face with consumers is to host sample sales and in-store events. However there is a trend to a more diverse fashion scene, with the rise of fashion exhibitions and educational events. New York has more diversity in this sense than LA, but less than London.

Hottest Event Regions

The majority of fashion events in New York happen on the island of Manhattan, especially in the Garment District and Lower Manhattan. However there is an increasing trend to cross the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn and Williamsburg, particularly in venues like Industry City.

Fashion Events by Month

The fashion industry in New York has events all year round, but it's often quieter in January and late summer, and peaks towards Christmas.

Event Opening Day

Unlike in most other fashion cities, New York fashion event organisers tend to open their events mid-week, to catch people on their lunch break and after work. Sunday is the quietest day for event launches in the city.

New York Sample Sales in 2019

Hottest Sample Sale Regions

Although sample sales in New York can happen anywhere on Manhattan and Brooklyn, a huge number of them are focussed around The Garment District and Lower Manhattan - particularly with 260 Sample Sale's prime Fifth Avenue location and Soiffer Haskin both based near the Garment District.

Fashion Sample Sales by Month

Sample sales happen in New York all year round but are mostly focussed on two key seasons - Spring and Winter. The Spring scene in New York is mostly March to June, and the Winter season is distinctly November and December for holiday gifting.
