Behind the Scenes: Business Adventures in New York City

The start of New York Fashion Week has me reminiscing on my recent trip to the Big Apple. My days are filled from sunrise to sunset with buyer and editor meetings but I love the energy of the city. Lotte New York Palace is my favorite place to stay.

Every morning I sip my earl grey tea while taking in the view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in a quiet room high above all the noise.

I’m always eating on the go and the Lotte New York Palace has the cutest French style bakery, Pomme Palia. I’ll grab a croissant and refill my earl grey tea and I’m off!

First stop – Hearst Tower 

This was truly a dream for me! I met with editors from Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Town and Country, O Magazine and Elle. Our statement earrings and Horn Choker Necklace were their favorite pieces from our spring line.

After leaving Hearst I grabbed a quick bite at Bergdorf Goodman Café.

Next stop – Meeting with the owner of Julian Gold

Julian Gold has been offering customers the best designer selections since 1945 and we are thrilled our line is available throughout their four locations in Texas.

Now it’s time to hail a taxi! I have a long ride to Brookfield Place to meet with Saks Fifth Avenue. Their new downtown office is sleek and modern and has sweeping views of the Hudson River. They also loved our statement earrings and Amazonite Statement pieces.

For my last meal of the day I lucked out and came across a hidden burger joint in Le Parker Meridien. It was absolute burger perfection.

The next day I had several morning meetings before I had to jet off to the airport. There is never enough time in New York City!

First stop (Day 2) – Buyer meeting with Intermix

Intermix is known for mixing on-trend pieces in unexpected ways. Again, it was all about the statement earring. The buying team loved our Mother of Pearl Chandelier Earrings so much they had to try them on. 🙂

My last stop was in downtown Manhattan to meet with Halsbrook. Our bold pieces blend well with the classic clothing carried by this online boutique. Their turquoise-toned office is super cute and I always enjoy catching up with them.

With my trip wrapped up, I start sketching new designs on the flight home. New York City gets me so inspired! I am already looking forward to my next visit.
