Fashion Trade Shows 2021
I'm DeAnna!

Welcome to the space where I share what's on my heart regarding your business and what's going on inside the retail industry.  I hope it inspires and encourages you to keep fighting for your business every single day.

hey there

Take my 5-day Product Buying Mini-Course

It's all about the cash flow!  Numbers are your friends

How to run your store more efficiently.  Systems + processes are everything

It doesn't matter how amazing your branding and products are if your target customers don't know it!

Where to find unique products and what to think about next

If you are wondering how to buy wholesale or how to sell wholesale, you must attend trade shows and apparel markets!


Trade Shows are a major source of inspiration and empower you to stay abreast of emerging fashion trends and emerging brands in the fashion industry.

Attending trade shows is truly an inspirational high and I strongly encourage retailers and boutiques to attend to discover new products and ways to refresh their assortment, and for brands to attend as exhibitors to connect with new buyers, boutiques, and industry mavens, and to stay competitive in their market.

Before you jump on the next trip to China to find manufacturers, you must make sure you have first attended national trade shows – I promise you will thank me.

It makes searching for wholesale clothing for boutique owners drastically easier and more cost effective.

If you have been thinking about attending a trade show to find wholesalers for boutiques, but are unsure where to start, we discuss this and dig deeper into buying strategy and what it takes to run a successful store inside my coaching program, Storefront Success™!

I also teach a Buying Mini-course that will help you make better inventory buying decisions in just 5 days. Click here to enroll!

If you would like to attend a fashion trade show with a retail industry expert, I attend trade shows with my Coaching Clients to help them navigate and maximize their time at the show, while simultaneously assisting them in executing their merchandising and buying strategy we created together inside the program.


And I beg you – DO NOT buy merchandise vendor lists.

There are millions of products and vendors worldwide available to do business with. A vendor list means you are purchasing the same vendors that hundreds or even thousands of other boutiques are – hence competing with one another and not creating your own brand identity – which is not a sustainable business model.

If you’ve had thoughts about purchasing a vendor list, I would recommend you ask yourself what your passion is – is it to just make money or is it to serve unique and curated pieces to your customers?

The most exciting part of owning a boutique is the hunt for merchandise and the highs of the finds.

If trade shows seem intimidating to you, that’s what I’m here for!


Buying Tip!

Make sure you download the FAVES PRO app for buyers before you attend a trade show!

You will thank me later, trust me!


Here is a list of Major U.S. Home & Fashion Trade Shows and International Home & Fashion Trade Shows you should attend in 2021.


I’ve listed both physical and digital trade shows for you!

Click the name of the trade show for boutique owners to be taken to the show website.

Note: when you see multiple shows in the same city and dates, it typically means that they are all near one another / in the same buildings so you can attend multiple shows at once.

please note – due to COVID, many trade shows have cancelled their in-person experience and moved to showing digitally. Click the name of the trade show for the latest updates.

Hi, I'm DeAnna.
Your New Retail Biz Bestie + Coach.

I’m a corporate retail dropout - turned - Business Consultant for indie brands + boutiques.  I spent 10 years working inside the corporate offices of some of the US's biggest brands, but it didn't ever feel like "me".  Fast forward to today I ditched that (crazy) life to work exclusively for (you) small business owners.

Because you deserve to compete at the same level as the brands I used to work for, and I make that happen.
