NY NOW 2018.
We are beyond excited to be going back to NY NOW 2018. Our Handcrafted products from Cape Town South Africa, will be shown in Artisan resource – Booth 3769.
The SA Designers.
Inspired by the great exhibition experiences we had in 2017, fellow designers Skinny Laminx and Wren design will be at the show this year as well. Mungo design, the only other SA company in Artisan resource last year will be there again, and celebrated ceramist Zizamele will finish off an entertaining group of design companies. South Africa will be presenting home wear and fashion design in our distinctive design styles.
With over 60 000 visitors expected over four days of exhibiting, it’s going to be full on work! Being in New York, the evenings are for exploring the streets and sights of the city that never sleeps. It takes 3 days to set up the stage to show off the collections and were all going to be painting and hammering away to get the best booth displays up. Frequent Uber trips to hardware stores and IKEA are part of the journey. We are all sharing a pad off central park, so getting around and going out is going to be extra fun!
There is an unprecedented demand for homemade and handcrafted artisan products in the US. This Demand is driven by the need for consumers to have a better understanding of where, and how the products they purchase are made and is becoming a mainstream consideration. The I made your clothes (bags) by FASHION REVOLUTION and well as Instagram accounts such as Red carpet green dress #RCGD are making fashion-forward consumers more aware. Concepts such as design innovation, cultural preservation, social enterprise and sustainability are all design ethics for these South African company’s, and a new wave of ethical consumers are wanting this.
