Melbourne Trade Shows

(image from Life In Style blog)

Well, I've been on a sneaky little trip to Melbourne for 3 days to check out the 3 trade shows currently in action. I fell in love with Life In Style where there was a more boutique feel and some of the displays were to die for. I spent most of my time at Life In Style drooling over designers and labels that I LOVE. I met Dani Rosen from Dan300 and almost couldn't speak because she is so lovely and in control and knowledgeable, etc, etc, and I also popped into some of my other 'brand idol's' such as Elk, NancyBird, Love, Poppies for Grace, Polli, Pigeonhole and the list goes on and on and on...

Can you tell that I was just slightly in awe of my little trip to see some of the bigger scale designers and brands that I love. I also checked out some of the new kids on the block at First In Style where newbie designers are assigned a little booth where they can present their new products for the first time - I'd love to think the Pili Pala Pieces might make it there one day. One day.........
