One of the things I learned was that two days is not enough. Next time I will come for the full three days. This show is so huge!!! I could spend a whole day just in the footwear hall alone. Oh, and I have to ham it up a bit, and show you the shoes I bought. Some of the vendors will sell their samples at the end of the show. Check out this pair of purple awesomeness...
During the span of the last two days, I met with over 200 companies, and most of them said they had a really great show. After attending the furniture show two weeks ago, and this fashion show this week, I can't help but get the sense that business conditions are slowly but steadily improving. There were a lot of smiling company owners at both shows. Things are look'n up!
Unfortunately, covering so much ground, and talking with so many companies, my camera didn't come out of my pocket nearly enough. However, this next photo just had to be taken...
Yup! A vending machine with ballet flats! What a brilliant idea!
Seriously, how cool is this???
Well, it's now 3:00AM, and I have a delicious baked apple pie to finish here. After that, do I go to bed? Or do I go back out? Hmmmm...decisions...decisions...
I hope you have a great day full of smiles :-) And, as always, thank you so much for reading!
All my best wishes,

G STAR RAW shoes. No way to resist visiting this booth!
ROCKSTAR SUSHI, a way cool edgy brand from California...Loved it!
CONDOM Socks. This company makes their socks with bamboo...yes you read that right...bamboo! And, you would not believe how soft and wonderful they are! So cool...so GREEN...so awesome!
There was SO MUCH more, but I was so focused on the next rad piece around each corner, I just couldn't stop to take more photos. But, I will leave you with a very cool video I took at the end of the day in STREET
Have a great day eveyone! I'm off to start day 2! :-)◦

On my way back to Las Vegas to check out the MAGIC show. It's a huge apparel show with literally thousands of brands. I'm especially looking forward to seeing PROJECT! I'm such a freak for new fashion...can't wait!

Remembering last year...

The show was SO great! The colors were so vibrant and fun! Modernism is still the overall feeling. Also, the spread of "GREEN" awareness is greater and greater! So many wonderful natural textures and reclaimed materials made into timeless treasures. Creativity was all around you. I took way too few photos because my schedule was CRAZY!!! But, I think I got enough to give you a good idea...
