Ever wondered what it's like to be buyer at NYC market week? Last week we went to NYC to buy for the Spring/Summer 2018 season. Market week is always a crazy experience of fun, exhaustion, meeting lots of new people, and of course, the excitement of previewing designer's collections before it hits the market. But for us, it's also about meeting and connecting with the designers we carry or will potentially carry - asking about their stories, inspirations, understanding how/where their products are made, and getting to build authentic relationships with them.
