Fair-ly busy

Oh Lyssy May - what a mess! At the moment I am in full design mode preparing a new collection so fabric and trims are strewn from one end of the studio to the other - heaps of fun! The time pressure is on as I will hope to preview the collection at the Life InStyle trade fair here in Melbourne at the end of July. I visited the fair last year looking for goodies for my store and was overwhelmed by the quality of the products on display and it is always fun to see what the stores will be buying for the Christmas gifting season. I am very excited to be attending as an exhibitor this year.

Trade fairs are a lot of work with long days on your feet but it is a great way to reach a number of potential stockists in a concentrated period of time. I have attended a couple previously and they were both draining and rewarding - if you are looking to expand into wholesale I recommend checking out to see if its something for you.
