“For us, and our designers, it lines up well for designers who are shopping the event and for buyers who are not interested in making the trek to New York City during the winter.”

“We really want it to be an intimate setting where buyers can mingle and do business and enjoy their days with us. Once you get to a certain size, it doesn’t have that same feeling.”

— Lauren Wolf
