Industry insider’s share their thoughts.
I’ll be catching up with my current suppliers including Darling (pictured), Amazing Woman and Hudson Shoes. I’m also keen to find some new jewellery suppliers who are keeping ahead of the high street stores. I always look forward to visiting Nat & Nin to place our bag order and I have some appointments with new brands.
Colour and print on transitional styles such as lightweight knits and tops. Anything that will instantly freshen up your wardrobe but is wearable throughout the season. As always, accessories will be high on my list at Pure (autumn 13 edition, pictured), as this is such a key growth area for The Dressing Room.
Pure is a great opportunity to check out exciting new brands. Lewis Yates is primarily focused on premium brands, but the beauty of Pure is you never know what hidden treasures you could unearth. I predict many spring 14 collections will showcase pretty pastel colours and prints will also have a strong presence. I’ll be looking out for Becksöndergaard this season (pictured).
Poppy Lux and Sugarhill Boutique (pictured) are my first stops in Pure’s young fashion section, Spirit. Our first season with these brands has been fantastic and I can’t wait to see what’s new. Then I’ll rush over to Ollie & Nic in Accessories. I’ve always loved its bags and can’t wait to have them in Fox + Feather.
