Couture Show 2011 – Scene 2

Posted on November 18th, 2011 in Events,Home page (right column),In The Know

I’m so excited to continue touring the Couture Show with you. There is so much to see and take in as one makes their way through the Inter Continental – Barclay lobby and on to the show reception area.

The show staff are just awesome to work with and I have enjoyed getting to know them. As buyers, exhibitors and press check-in they are met with this same hospitality that I have come to appreciate…makes me feel at home in the Big Apple…with my southern roots and all. 🙂

Once all the registration is completed, we move on to the resource area. Here you find bridal and evening wear magazines and other helpful resource material. It provides a great overview of the market and exhibitors that will be at the show.

These resource areas are found in the main lobby area and on each floor (3 upper floors) that the show is happening on.

Designers that are a part of the show, like myself, can really connect with the buyers and press in many ways. But, the first way to do this is from the entrance to the show. In my last post you saw the amazing center display and here you see a headpiece designer’s creations as design talent is showcased for buyers.

This is the place to be for buyers and especially new & seasoned designers. When I was in NY for the April Couture Show, I had the pleasure of meeting a very talented new designer by the name of Tara LaTour . Corin, Producer of the show, had introduced me to her because she knew it would be great to connect with other new designers that could share their experiences about the show, etc. She was great to talk with and as we talked, her assistant came up to us and told Tara that she needed her back to their display area ASAP…Martha Stewart had arrived and wanted to speak with her! Those are the moments that take a designers breath away…I knew at that moment that anything was possible…keep focused on your goals and those things that you are passionate about. You never know who will be at the show and who you will have the opportunity to meet! These are the “normal” happenings of the show!!

More displays of design talent…

Okay, now you have a great overview of the show and all the happenings. Scene 3 is going to be me!! Designs By Malyse and my At Last Collection!! Continued soon! Gotta get ready for final projects and quizzes/test before Thanksgiving break…the other part of my life! 🙂
