COTERIE WANTS TO HELP AUSSIES BREAK THE USA
Womenswear trade show COTERIE has partnered with the Australian Fashion Council (AFC) to introduce Australian brands to the U.S. market. On October 9, COTERIE will host a seminar in Sydney detailing how to successfully enter the market. COTERIE VP Danielle Licata said local brands have gained traction in the US. “Australian brands have been increasing in popularity over the last five years and COTERIE has helped to grow their footprint in the North American market. We are excited to come to Australia and discover the next wave of talent for our retailers to invest in." COTERIE was a strategic US launch pad for Alice McCall, Bec and Bridge, Camilla, For Love and Lemons and One Teaspoon. Through its partnership with the Australian Fashion Council, eligible brands may apply to the Australia Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) for a grant.
