A Day In The Life: Join the Frankie’s Buying Team in NYC January 18 2016
The Frankie’s On The Park Team always loves touching-down in the Big Apple because that means one very important thing: we’re about to stock Frankie’s with the newest, coolest and cutest new trends and fashions- and of course, we will be eating tons of yummy NYC food after a long day of buying…
Girls, get ready because the show got us all excited about some upcoming warm weather, graduation and bat mitzvah dresses, and of course, CAMP!!
However, before we get into the details about what the trends of the upcoming seasons are and what we stocked up on, we thought we should set the scene for our readers. What does a buying show even look like? Well, first things first- location, location, location. The kids buying show takes place on the West side of New York City, at Pier 92. Once you enter the building, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by the rows upon rows of hundreds of designers booths filled with merchandise. However, our team comes to the show with a plan, ready to zoom to our favorite brands booths! Think Zara Terez, Vintage Havana, Un Deux Trois, and Malibu Sugar!! Every brand sets up their own little mini-store in which buyers enter and shop just like we all shop in boutiques. However, unlike most stores, nearly every brand has a massive jar of candy stationed on the desk for buyers to indulge their sweet tooth while they shop for their store. Personally, I often judge a brand based upon their candy choices (ex: Jolly Ranchers= lame and Butterfingers= fantastic).
But enough about candy already, lets get down to business and talk fashion! This past week in NYC, we were buying for the spring and summer, so we were flipping through racks and racks of cut-off jean shorts, dresses, and our favorite year-round item, cozy pajamas, among many other items of course. After making hundreds of orders with all of our favorite brands, we compiled a Spring/ Summer Trend Forecast- read up ladies, we have a feeling you will want to get your hands on all of the trendy items below in no time…
