As a fashion buyer you want more than just watching the models walk up and down the runways. The buyers need to touch the clothes, they need prices, fabrics used, etc. The sooner that information is available to them the better they can tell their fashion stories to the customers.
This is where trade shows come in, Coterie to be specific. For the buyers, fashion editors, and students that couldn’t attend the fashion shows, the trade show gives them up close and personal access without the glitz and glamour.
After the serious work begins for the designers and buyers.
This video shows you what a visit to Coterie can be. My co-worker, Isidoro, and myself spent last Monday morning getting a glimpse of what our favorite designers created, visited old friends and previewed what we’ll be wearing come next fall!
I would say it was a morning well spent!

Alternatives you ask for, Illustrations and graphic design are some. Illustrators like Andy Warhol, Julie Verhoeven, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Renaldo Barnette and Michael Roberts have used fashion to showcase their visions and talents with colors and shapes. They are just a few of the many artists that allows us to put Fashionable Art on our walls.

The bag got noticed on this season of the Gossip Girl for all the wrong reasons. It looks as though it was a accessory class project that went wrong. Ohh and the price $4,495, adding insult to injury. Sometimes, too much of a good thing, is just too much. On the flip side, if you’re indecisive about what to wear for New Year’s, this bag is four outfits in one. Sequins, studs, ruffles and a bow. Just show up in your underwear and the bag.
Here are some better looking options that wouldn’t break the bank and still keep you looking chic.
