It’s been quite a hectic month with three trade shows lined up between WWDMagic in Las Vegas, Capsule Show in New York, and currently in France for Capsule Paris right now.  We wanted to do a Recap of our first two shows and follow it up with a ‘Part II from Paris’ when we’re back stateside.

We’ve been having a blast with the Accessories Council and honored to be selected to showcase with them.  It’s been a great experience meeting like-minded designers along with buyers and press from all over the globe.

At Capsule NY we got to sit in for ‘The Independent Mindset’ Discussion, with innovative minds in indie retail featuring Steven Alan, Jill Totokaelo and Jen from ShopBird.  The panel was moderated by Lauren Sherman the editor of  Great advice and tips for independent designers & brands and what retailers look for.

One thing we’ve heard many times is that it’s all about the follow up and building the relationships with the buyers for the long run.  We loved meeting the team at Coop & Spree who we adore for writing such kind words about us on WWD! Makes all the hustle worth it!
