Blog: Full steam ahead at Drapers

There is something about being in the season that brings a heightened sense of urgency to the Drapers office. The term ‘flat out’ will not suffice – the word ‘manic’ is more appropriate.

My colleagues and I are concurrently working on autumn 08 fashion shoots for men, women and streetwear, so we are surrounded by tonnes of exciting product that will be on sale for fashion buyers this month.

In between shoots we are also jetting off to the trade shows across Europe. Last week some colleagues travelled to Florence to view menswear at Pitti Uomo, returning with news of upcoming brands, new collections and designers to watch. More reporters are in Barcelona this week for Bread and Butter and next week some colleagues and I will be heading to Pret a Porter in Paris to view womenswear.

Add to the mix the forthcoming Fashion Weeks in Copenhagen and London and there is no sign of slowing down.

How is your season schedule going so far? Are you managing to fit it all in?
