A Coterie Show //

September 21, 2015

Hey guys! I wanted to share an amazing experience I had today; I was lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to visit a Coterie - Fashion Trade Show today! 


I saw so many amazing designers and so many new designers. What happens at a trade show is that buyers from big department stores like Neiman Marcus/Nordstrom's/Sax's Fifth Ave etc come and choose the designers/brands/collections they want to showcase and sell in their stores. I saw a ton of collections for Spring 2016 and fell in love with so many designers and collections! I'm so thankful for this amazing experience and entrance into the fashion world. I had so much fun learning the back stories of the relationship between designers and stores. I saw a number of buyers and sellers together discussing business and it was really a surreal moment for me! I can't wait until 2016 when I can go to these stores and see these collections in store!! My favorite brands/collections I saw were Elizabeth & James, Milly, The Kooples, and Free People! 

Here's a look at the showroom as well as my outfit for today :~)

My outfit is one of my favorites!! My top is from Urban Outfitters and is the Unif x Urban Outfitters collab, my skirt is from Urban Outfitters, my shoes are by Alice & Olivia, and my necklace is from Free People. I love the color combination of the skirt and top together as it gives it such an old-school vibe which I was totally diggin'!
