New York, New York so cold we almost didn’t make it into the city for the January Children’s Club trade show at the Javit’s Centre from 7th – 9th January.
The huge snowstorms and freezing temperatures (-12!) meant that most flights were grounded the week we were travelling and so despite endless delays and almost loosing the end of my nose and fingertips to the cold I was grateful to arrive along with our AW18 samples in the BIG icy APPLE in time to set up.
It always amazes me how, in the space of 8 hours, the show materialises out from under a pile of cardboard boxes, half built stands and crumpled clothing into a sparkling showcase for the new season to be.
We had so many lovely compliments about our new AW18 collection with its soft palette and strong emphasis on party wear.
And at the end of each long day what could be more fun than walking back through the snow piled streets staring up at the fairytale New York skyline or riding back in a yellow cab past the vibrant lights of Broadway.
What a bracing and invigorating way to start the year.
HELLO 2018 xx
