I should have posted this yesterday or the day before, but man, I was pooped from the show!
We didn't intend to do the show at first because the fall show went ooookay for us but we signed up & took a chance. We were strapped for time too because we had moved our studio only 2 weeks prior to the show & didn't have time to make a lot of new stock... but this edition of the Clothing Show was our most successful exhibit that we've ever done with L&B!
We usually have a lot of time to socialize with other vendors and get a lot of downtime, but I think because we had a good booth spot (right by the runway), we were constantly busy with chatting up customers & talking with anyone visiting us. But we managed to remember to snap some pics with some friends...
We met this guy, Stevie Gee when he came by our booth to chat. He was a total sweetheart & was helping out another vendor, so he told us to come by to check out their stuff!
So here's Sam with Georgie of Retro G Couture, which we previously called the "Mad Hatter booth"! Georgie's a brit who makes these amazing over-the-top coats & hats & has dressed the likes of Stevie Nicks, Steven Tyler & Margaret Trudeau. WHAT THE!
Sam is (obviously) modeling some of her wares in the above two photos :)
Our friend Vanessa from Reconstructed came to visit! We met her at the Fall show.
Here's Margot from Scarf Party & Vanessa from Reconstructed at their own booth!
This is Elizabeth from Compass Jewelry, wearing our signature handcuff halter!
We were laughing so hard at this photo because she was pushing along a grocery cart & there's a giant garbage bin in front of her! I had meant to go to her cute booth & take a better pic but we ran out of time :(
Our model Aleks & photographer Carrie Jade herself!
I love these princesses so much. Come over & we'll braid your hair & have little parties, okay?
Like I was saying, we were running out of time so I just ran over to my new friend Le Grana Clothing's booth to snap this quick pic with Elizabeth & Grana. hahaha
I only bought one thing at the show (look at me, showing self control!) and it was this dress from Le Grana. I shall model it later ;)
& lastly, Katrina from The Demure Muse came & visited us! She was soooo sweet to come by after returning from her long vacation in Asia (check out that tan dude!) & she even brought us cute Betsey Johnson knee socks! WHY U SO NICE?!?! We shall model those soon too :)
I just wanted to take a second & say thank you to all the people who showed their support over the weekend! We were thrilled when people asked us about items that we mentioned on our blog (PEOPLE READ OUR BLOG?) and we were so happy to tell our new customers what we do!
- Check out this blogpost our new friend Amanda of Featherband wrote that features us :) Thanks Amanda!
- Take a look at this post on Toronto Street Fashion about some cool picks at the show featuring our heart cut-out sweater :)
- Peep this slideshow of pics on Bohemia Magazine featuring a pic of our Saturday outfits & a pic of Sam's shoes!
I'm still recovering from the fatigue of standing & intensely socializing for 3 straight days... and now we're working on the cleanup but I'm hoping to get back to regular posting in the blog soon!
