Bread and Butter January 2012 – The Buyer Experience

We love Bread and Butter! Every year after Christmas when everyone else is feeling gloomy, Claire and I get all excited about the trip to Berlin where we see new and existing fashion brands showcased at the wonderful Bread And Butter trade show. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with familiar faces and meet tons of new ones too and this time we had the added bonus of our lovely colleague James’ company!

It’s an early start, heading off from Bristol, Heathrow bound, at the un-godly hour of 3am. A couple of bleary eyed hours later, we found ourselves seated ready for some top nosh breakfast at Gordon Ramsey’s Plane Food restaurant at terminal 5 (the best terminal by far). This always deserves a mention, my Eggs Florentine was a vision to behold and tasted pretty good too.

When we finally arrived in a rather nippy Berlin, we paid a visit to the trade show Premium first. This was a high-end fashion show where we picked up loads of details from potential new suppliers and brands with the aim to launch later this year. We caught up with the guys at Chaser LA and absolutely loved their new ranges, we now know whats coming in all the way up to July! Expect to see more distressing, ripped details, tie dye and fringing, perfect for this year’s 90’s trend. No pics allowed though, so you will just have to keep you ear close to the ground!

Then it was off to Bread and Butter which is housed in the magnificent (now de-funct) Templehof Airport. With all the original signs, luggage conveyor belts and check in desks intact, it really is a breathtaking venue.

Frantically weaving our way through the crowds, we got to drop by Chunk, Coloud and Worn By ‘s stands (as well as many more) where we got a sneak preview of the up-coming lines for 2012. And we can tell you, there is a lot to look forward to! We also spotted some exciting new brands here which we can’t wait to start working with this year.

And so, with throbbing feet and sack loads of catalogues we made our way back to the airport, snoozing our way back to good old Blighty.

Minnie Mawi Looking Fabulous At London Fashion Week!

Claire and I were very lucky darlings indeed last Friday when we crossed the West-East divide, teetering our way over to London hot on the heels of the fash pack on route to London Fashion Week. After a quick stop off at the Chaser LA showrooms, where we saw some pretty amazing new collections due over the coming months and new year (keep your eyes peeled) we headed over to the Strand and Somerset House. We have been drooling over the Minnie Mawi collection for Disney Couture over the past couple of weeks here at Truffle Towers so it was very exciting to go and see all the stunning up and coming pieces at the Fashion Week exhibition. We were met by the lovely Sandra and Lisette, who looked very at home in the uber fashionable surroundings. I managed to get a few snaps whilst I was there…

Mawi lovelies...
More Mawi lovelies...
Yep, even more Mawi lovelies!

After taking a tour around, seeing some stunning new brands showcasing their latest collections, stopping for coffees and people watching, I scampered off, Hoxton-bound for some fun times and slightly dodgy 90’s rave dancing flaunting my new favourite thing, my Ivory Pearl Minnie Mawi Bib Necklace!

Gold Plated and Black Ribbon Ivory Pearl Minnie Mouse Mawi Bib Necklace £78
