Attending capsule as both a “blogueur” and fashion therapist entitled me to plenty of scoop from all the brands, including their stories, background, and overall design direction. It also gave me plenty of opportunity to offer up some free and formidable advice and feedback on the western market- from trend forecast, to what consumers love, to what buyers look for. Some exhibitors were a little apprehensive about me taking photos, however the ones that did were extremely generous with information, and some even sent me away with gifts!
