off to market in NYC with mom!
It's that time of year again, market week!! I am so excited to head down to NYC with my mom to shop for Spring/Summer 2011. It's always such a treat to go to the shows and see what's in store for next season. We will be attending 3 shows in 2 days, which means lots and lots to see. First we head to D&A which is personally my favorite show. This show takes place in the Chelsea Art Museum and has more of the smaller designers and showrooms, always a good place to find new up and coming designers (Stewart + Brown, Alkemie, AK Vintage). Next stop is Capsule which is a show I have not yet been too, but I found a really great mother/daughters designed line that I've been dying to check out (Family Affairs) and they will be there. Last stop, COTERIE! For anyone who has ever been to market week, you know that Coterie is the biggest show in town during market week. Taking place at the Javits down on the piers, this show is HUGE. I can't even guess how many vendors will be there but we have our favorites that we meet with (Corey Lynn Calter, Joie, Lauren Moffatt, etc.) so we try hard to stay on track. So much fun and truly the ultimate shopping experience with my mom. Stay tuned for sneak peaks at some of our spring/summer 2011 favorites.
