Meet Me in Miami
March 18, 2013 § 1 Comment
So much has been happening and I am only half alert as I write this, but I wanted to make a post before Miami.
Here we go. By Wednesday my sister and I will be in the Miami Fashion Week Pop-Up Boutique. This is our chance to get our feet wet before we tackle venues in NYC, Vegas and California. This jewelry thing keeps getting more real.
The Miami event is unique because it is open to both wholesale buyers and retail buyers. Both groups give me an excellent opportunity for direct feedback, which is so valuable. As a 20+ year artist, I am usually the one giving out advice and tips, but not this time. This is the time to keep my ears and mind open. Talk less, listen more.
I have a lot more respect for the organizers of San Diego Comicon. That show was a dream compared to my first fashion convention, which is a lot less organized.
I have no idea what to expect over the next 6 days. Whatever it is, however it is…I know what I am there to do and I am prepared to show jewelry AND maybe some color in my pale Midwestern skin.
