Mini success!

Finally, I met with a nice vendor who makes really high quality components for companies ranging from Michael Kors to Disney! They even sent me back to my office with a huge library of components. And I have a very promising appointment with a leather supplier tomorrow, and some appointments later in the week. Things are looking up!

I also found out later from some fashion designer friends that they haven’t always had the best experiences at trade shows. It’s not just me! Most of the vendors I am working with are contacts from previous jobs.

    Happy for you about this. Was bummed about the rough time you got at the trade show. Glad things are looking up. Keep at it.

    It’s people like you, pushing boundaries, that will drive innovation in the products they’ll offer in the future. I’m glad some suppliers have the vision and good taste to recognise the value of partnering with you.

    When every outfit has a lilypad controller and a data bus running through the zipper, those vendors who have you a hard time are going to be left in the dust.

    Thank you for the encouragement, everyone! I think I will have some really neat products in the near/far future :)

      That’s a cunning answer to a chalelnging question
