First-Ever Bag Expo Set for New York Fashion Week

In What's New, Industry News by Accessories Staff

SPRBG3Framingham, MA—New York Fashion Week 2014 is usually all about the runways at Lincoln Center (and elsewhere). But come the next NYFW in September, it’s going to be all about handbags, too.

Morph Events announced SPRBG Expos/Party/Awards event will be held Sept. 4 to 5 at Openhouse, 201 Mulberry. The pop-up bag only shopping event will be devoted entirely to bags (both women’s and men’s).

Void Within Bag Industry

Pronounced “superbag,” this SPRBG expo will showcase a varied and relevant blend of “What’s Next Now” in men’s and women’s bags from both established and emerging designers, featuring street-smart messenger bags, stylized men’s duffels, luxury handbags, shoulder bags, Big-Night-Out clutches, work-hard/play-hard laptop bags, long-weekend bags, rough n’ ready music festival bags and more.

“Consumers, designers, industry professionals, among others are thrilled there is finally an event that is dedicated to and celebrates the bag category, which has exploded over the last decade,” said Ron Moreau, the event’s co-founder. “Our team has worked in the event industry for two decades and it became evident to us over the last several years that there was a major event void for those within the bag industry.”

On top of selling products and meeting face-to-face with consumers, the media and a wide range of industry professionals including retailers and manufacturers, all exhibitors are eligible for the event’s “Best In Show” Awards, which will include categories such as Attendees Choice, Best Student-Designed, Best Men’s Overall and Best Women’s Overall.
