About

Who we are
& what we do

For all of your wholesale apparel, accessory and footwear buying needs, we’ve got you covered!  Appealing to retailers from Vancouver Island all the way to Ontario’s lakehead region, our members exhibit at the TRENDS Apparel show to offer you the best and widest variety of brands for your store.

TRENDS is proud to be affiliated with the Canadian Association of Wholesale Sales Representatives (CAWS)

What

TRENDS The Apparel Show is the first event of its kind in Canada that involves the participation of wholesale sales representatives showing Men’s, Ladies, Children’s, Sport, Street, Work, Western and Footwear lines.

Who

TRENDS Apparel is sponsored by the Alberta Men’s Wear Agents Association which has a proud history of hosting the largest and most successful apparel show in Canada.

How

TRENDS Apparel evolved from the need to recognize the participation of sales representatives attending the Alberta Men’s Wear Show and the Alberta Fashion Market Society as well as the need to diversify to satisfy the buying requirements of retailers. The success of this concept continues to gain momentum.

Now

TRENDS Apparel was launched in March 2002 and today we have more than 180 members representing 1400+ brands.
