Accessories Market Dates for 2019

FASA, Fashion Accessories Shippers Association (formerly the National Fashion Accessories Association and the National Handbag Association) has been working with industry leaders to establish New York market dates for the accessory industry for more than 30 years. In collaboration with industry stakeholders, buyers, manufactures and wholesale firms we have undertaken two industry meeting and an industry survey answered by over 200 firms. Based on consensus feedback from all participants it was determined that four market weeks, plus a cold weather market were appropriate for 2019.  We are pleased to announce the Accessories Market Dates and trade show dates for 2019: February 4-8 Accessories Fall Market Week: May 6-10 Accessories Holiday Market Week: August 5-9 Accessories Spring Market Week: November 4-8 Accessories Summer Market Week: Additionally, for the cold weather segment, there will be a market week as follows: January   7-11 Cold Weather Market Week Trade shows: Jan 6-8 – NYC  Javits/Hudson Yards: Accessories Circuit, Accessories the Show.
