January market tend to be the largest out of the five in the year. The holidays are long gone and that means that retailers are looking to restock and bring in new and fresh apparel to their stores.
This year Dallas and Atlanta markets overlapped and out team had to split up – but no worries! We managed to pull it off and let us say that all of our hard work for the past three months have completely paid off!
As our followers know, our company has changed SO MUCH. The more we grow, the more we change – and for the better. This time around, we decided we’d upgrade our booth’s decor. Let’s face it, it’s practically our home for about 4 days and we’re all about aesthetics and feeling comfortable. All our new decor went to our space in Dallas. We found these beautiful mint and mocha drapes and beige shaggy rug that made a huge difference. We were amazed by how many people told us the drapes made them stop by our booth!
This spring we decided we were going to use bright colors that make you pop. We renewed our top and leggings combo and added a few more loud prints to the collection. Here’s the best part: we SOLD OUT of all our prints. That’s great news for our designer because it meant she could run to our fabric houses on Monday to make new designs – so look out for new styles that will be coming out soon!
Thursday night, we knew the Atlanta Apparel market would be 80’s themed. We were definitely surprised to find a live 80’s rock band playing for us. Drinks, appetizers and live music after a day of work is always perfect!
The following Friday, they set up a 30-minute runway show for us. Yes, it’s our favorite part of market (aside from mingling with our clients!). We saw lots of black and white and corals/mints… This spring has to be an interesting one 😉
Oh and we just had to throw this picture in. One of our team member’s dog absolutely refused to let her pack for Atlanta. He didn’t let her close her suitcase – he thought he was coming with!! Maybe next time he’ll join?
