Well here I am back from New York! We had an amazing time, New York is a truly fabulous place and I can’t wait to go back. I’ve got a lot of things to share about the trip, but first up a few things that caught my eye at the National Stationery Show.
One of the features of the show was Paper Runway. In partnership with Kate’s Paperie, the fashion exhibit was created to show the relationship between paper and fashion by showcasing paper dresses from cutting-edge fashion designers, among them Lela Rose, Susan Woo, Yeohlee, Jen Kao, Donald Deal.
The display also held a competition for visual merchandising and design students at New York City’s LIM College. Students’ were asked to incorporate products from NSS exhibitors to compete for a cash prize and will be featured in the windows of Kate’s Paperie during Fashion Week.
They did an incredible job – the detailing and craftsmanship was amazing. I especially love the colour palettes used and the the mixing of patterns that work together. Gorgeous!
