Coterie New York with Danielle & Olivia March 19 2018
This February, Alex and I took Olivia and Danielle with us to New York for Coterie
Coterie happens twice a year. We work back to back appointments and get inspiration for our season, our events and our merchandising when we attend.
Olivia and Danielle were able to see all of our denim brands - we even went to the Hudson Showroom where we were wowed by super cool entertainment, a gourmet coffee bar, breakfast and a graffiti artist. Some appointments are hectic and frustrating, as many of the booths are packed with reps and buyers from all over the world. The showroom appointment was a real treat!
The Norma Kamali showroom - her flagship location since the seventies - was a definite highlight. The girls got to see how iconic the brand is, the celebrity following, and the styling philosophy.
We also had a fun night out with the London, Ontario mother/daughter retail team Gail-Lynn and Brianna of Saffron Road. We had great dinner at Santina in the Meatpacking District.
For dessert we walked over to the latest Instagram craze Black Tap. (We went to the one at 248 W 14th St, New York, which is not on the website). And yes, Olivia did add vodka to her shake!
Our other dinner out was at Quality Meats. After dinner we hiked all the way down Fifth Avenue to Times Square to walk off our steak!
