Yes. Oh oh yes.. hard to believe that it's already time for another installment of the Pool Trade Show! August 22nd through 24th, we are honored and privileged to be media in attendance of this plethora of fashion inspiration. The bi-annual trade show (in conjunction of MAGIC) balances emerging and established brands at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Vegas, Nevada.

From their website:
  • POOLTRADESHOW is the original independent tradeshow, established in 2001 for the boutique market and leading retailers world-wide
  • POOLTRADESHOW is hosted bi-annually every February and August in Las Vegas in conjunction with MAGIC Marketplace
  • POOLTRADESHOW carefully curates each show, balancing fresh talent with established brands. Each POOL brand is pre-screened to provide a well-rounded representation of items that will keep the boutique and lifestyle market at the pulse of emerging trends
  • POOLTRADESHOW is a community of art and design driven brands creating industry connections for creative visionaries
  • POOLTRADESHOW offers a distinct intimate environment that is conducive to doing business, with a non-intimidating ambiance allowing POOL exhibitors the opportunity to stand out and develop their brand
In the months leading up to the trade show, we will be profiling some of our favourite brands that will be present and representing their latest collections. We are also very excited to have the chance to meet the designers of these brands at the show and get advice on running  a clothing line, but interested in hearing how they see their brands contributing to your personal style. I'm also interested in hearing their predictions of upcoming trends and seeing them in their work. 

Not to mention... all the photos we will be taking of the flocking fashionable! These shows (and exclusive after parties!) are abundant with over-the-top, dress-the-part, I'm-in-the-industry attendees and is the place to see and be seen. The last time that I attended, I came home on inspiration over-drive and wish I had a camera in tow. This time.. we won't miss a beat.
