We just got back from Pool at Magic! Not only was it our first trade show, it was our first time in Vegas. We brought our t-shirts, summer line, and FW’12 line and the response was great!
Triangles are our favorite shape, so what hotel choice could be better for us that the Luxor, a pyramid shaped hotel??
We got to do a little bit of sight seeing before we set up our booth. We thought the fake sky ceiling at The Venetian was so cool!
We even got to do some dancing at the Marquee, and spotted Leann Rimes with her hubby, and rapper Kreayshawn.
And then it was time to start working…
Putting up the vinyl background was a lot of work.
We had to cut out a lot of squares.
It was so worth it! We brought our t-shirts, Summer, and F/W’12 lines.
My friend got me such an amazing gift-a Diane Von Furstenberg scarf and book! Can’t think of a better muse/role model for a female fashion entrepreneur.
Check out these Valentines we gave out at the trade show to get attendees to stop by our booth. The photos were taken by Ely Kay and the cards were designed by Super Rad Design. Which one’s your favorite?
We also got to step away from our booth for a moment to check out Sourcing at Magic, a trade show with factories and companies showcasing their technologies and capabilities for apparel companies.
And then the trade show was over and we had to clean up. Our vinyl wall took 6 hours to put up and under 60 seconds to take down. It was beautiful while it lasted.
And then we got to do very Vegasy things before heading back to Brooklyn:
Come celebrate with us May 1, as we ring in Natty Paint’s one-year anniversary and new website launch at the Load of Fun Building, from 9 pm- 2 am.
The party will be thrown in conjunction with the Pop-Up Project, a Baltimore based project created for artists to gain exposure in a variety of settings and venues at one-time pop-up events where art, fashion, and music come together for a night.
Tix are a mere $7-$5 ($5 if you wear Natty Paint, of course) for an exclusive sneak peek into Baltimore’s thriving art scene.
Added incentive? Natty Boh on tap. Natty Paint, Natty artists… oh and did we mention that prints of the Super Rad, exclusive limited edition poster designed and screen printed just for the event by our web designer Carlos Vigil will also be for sale?
Please don your best and brightest party rompers and we’ll see you there!
With some trusty help from the exceptionally talented graphic design artist Carlos Vigil, our dear website will be undergoing a bit of a face-lift. Understated, but unorthodox. Refined but unkempt. Prowl through his funky designs at behance.net/carlosvigil. We can expect good things from this man. Very good things…
