Project Trade Show 2015 (Part 1)

It’s been a few busy days but absolutely worth it; primarily with my first time attending a trade show! This particular one called PROJECT took place from Sunday July 19th until Tuesday July 21st. The best way to describe it? Imagine the Auto Show at Jacob Javits Center, then take the cars and replace them with clothes. Bottom line: Fashion (men) heaven!

Han sido un par de dias ocupados pero han valido la pena; principlamente porque fui a mi primer trade show! Este se llama PROJECT y tomo lugar desde el Domingo 19 de Julio hasta el Martes 21 de Julio. La mejor manera de describirlo? Imaginen el Auto Show que se celebra en el Jacob Javits Center, ahora reemplacen los autos por ropa. En conclusion un paraiso! (de moda masculina)

We begin with Uri Minkoff; It’s combination of men shoes and bags certainly shined and caught our eyes the minute we walked in. Its representative was kind enough to give us some inside scoop on the brand, and even posed for our cameras with one of the items of the collection!

Next stop: Vicomte – A. The colorful yet sofisticated line comes all the way from Paris; the brand, which falls under The Avalon Group was represented by it’s owners. I had the pleassure of conversing with the Director of Sales, Tiffany Kalupa, who was kind enough to let us snoop around the array of items on display. Truly charming people + amazing clothing = perfect combination.
