Paris Premiere Vision

24 Sep

We are constantly asked how do we find our fabrics. We do travel directly to the factories to meet with the team and visit the infrastructure. But we also do trade shows…and Premiere Vision is a must do! After an early wake up at 4.45 am to catch the plane to Paris Orly, we took the RER to get to Villepente. An hour ride at 7 am stock between body odors, hair, handbags, underarms…..quiet lovely!

It was worth the morning pain to be able to meet with different suppliers from around the world and select fabrics for the next collection. A trade show that spread over six buildings….a real candy store for any fashion designer.

We shoot our lookbook a few months ago with a great team in New York. Here is a quick peek of the collection and backstage.

Travel diaries

Swimwear definitely makes us travel around the world, most importantly to discover new suppliers, check on production and quality. Recently, we got to discover another country and on my way back I bought Harper’s Bazaar to pass the time on the plane. After opening the first page, I quickly realized my Harper’s Bazaar was dating from February 2011…The one I freshly just bought 5 min ago on September 2011…..Weird! However, for our stop in Vienna we got to hang out at the Sacher hotel..for a piece for the famous Sacher tart! Absolutely Delicious! But definitely not recommended for any swimwear diet!
