Marc Bouwer Bows of Fashion Week
Marc Bouwer wil not be showing his collection at NYC's fashion week.
He is going to show his cloths online because it wil reach a wide
audience and the internet is a great way to see the show. A designer
can spend anywhere from 200,000 to $1 millon to be a part of Fashion
Week. Foreign brands such as Gucci and Hermes are doing well because
of the euro's value, but retailers, designers, and consumers are cutting
back. Retail sales acoording to the American Asociation of Apparel and
Footwear, were up in 2007. In 2007, the fashion industry made $350 billion
in sales. This year the shopping sprees are slowing down.
