The number of conscious fashion retailers and social entrepreneurs is on the rise and the PROJECT Show is the best one-stop shop for anyone who is ready to explore a fashion for good business. PROJECT is a trade show held in New York and Las Vegas for industry professionals in the retail and e-commerce space. If you’re a buyer, designer, retailer, or influencer, PROJECT at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center is the place to be in August of every year.

With the biggest and perhaps best curated collection of designers, PROJECT offers a taste of style for everyone. There are apparel and accessories vendors for PROJECT Women’s, The TENTS, Pooltradeshow, kids, shoes, active wear, and accessories. This year, the Spring 2016 PROJECT show introduced a bigger and even better Conscious Collection of brands that are known for their sustainable production and/or charitable endeavors to help build a more conscious fashion industry.

PROJECT’s Conscious Collection expanded to over 50 brands which makes for an exciting marketplace for social good retail and growing online business owners. These hand-picked collections focused on brands that are dedicated to making a difference in the world as well as making a difference in the environment with their conscious products. Attributes include but are not limited to one or more of the following: fair trade, social consciousness, organic materials, supporting global artisans, ethical and sustainable production, building communities and philanthropy.

PROJECT Show’s Blogger Project is also a great opportunity to meet professional fashion bloggers and build relationships with these industry veterans. For seasoned retailers and designers who are looking to grow their current business by becoming a more community or globally conscious brand, PROJECT is the tradeshow to attend.

For smaller retailers, you can even stop by the Pooltradeshow and check out the Cash and Carry section where you can purchase your goods on the go and bring them straight back to your store. This smaller show makes it easier for new social entrepreneurs who need to buy smaller quantities and also for those who want to meet the designers and founders.


PROJECT brands Conscious editors have included in the past: Apolis, The Giving Keys, 31 Bits, Nashelle, JOYN, Purpose Jewelry, GREENOLA STYLE, TOMS, The Base Project and even newcomers like Half United, Sseko Designs, Rebel Nell and many more.
