And The MAGIC Continues…


After the blogger-filled bus ride from Santa Monica to Las Vegas, I embarked on one of my biggest fashion adventures – ever. WWD’s MAGIC Marketplace. Bringing not one, but two, major Las Vegas convention centers to their knees with aisles upon countless aisles of womenswear, menswear, accessories, swimwear, and more, this trade show of all trade shows was by far the most fashion I have ever experienced. Needless to say, I was in heaven.

Ranging from a whole show dedicated to shoes, PLATFORM, to an entire floor for new and emerging designers, PROJECT (see the very cool installation above), the energy and excitement was palpable.

And while I was there only as a peeper, almost everyone around me was there to do business. Merchants, buyers, retailers, designers – all making deals, talking numbers, planning next season’s collections. It’s the work that our merchants do in the market daily, except conveniently located in one out-of-this-world massive space.
