behind the scenes – market week

So much goes into the making of a line, and the inspiration and the design become so much of the focus. The selling of a creative product often gets glossed over or turned into a spectacle… but in fashion where nothing is a need there selling a brand and a luxury product is an art in and of itself. That dance of courtship with consumers begins with store buyers- buyers are the gateway. They are the professional shoppers who know what their customers will love and curate their stores accordingly. Market week is a designer’s chance to make it happen and sell their creations to the pickiest of shoppers. It is a crazy and hectic time, when a caffeine iv drip is needed and proper nutrition often falls by the wayside. A designer only has several days to meet with as many buyers as they can, and often only 15-10 mins to make that first, second, and hopefully many more impressions count… so here’s a little glimpse into how Between the Sheets showed our collections to buyers this august at market.
