WWDMAGIC Day 3 & Cobb Hill Shoes

My super cool new sunglasses curteous of Kameleonz. I will be spotlighting them next week!
 Our third and final day at WWDMAGIC we went to the MVMNT and POOLTRADESHOW at the Mandalay Bay. I loved it. The MVMNT show is where the urban / high street brands are. The two shows are in the same conference room, and are much smaller than the venues at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's hard to describe the vibe of the two shows...On one side you have the super cool urban hip-hop/tattoo artists/creative artists turned designers (and "turned" isn't even the right term: rather they do it all), and then at the POOL show, you have the yoga, holistic, chill-vibe brands. Basically, it's the cool kids show. You know, the group of people you wished you were a part of in high school. Only, there aren't any cliques and every one is friendly and incredibly approachable. It's awesome.

WearMena



One of my favorite new discoveries at WWDMAGIC was the WearMena brand. Misty Rose (how perfect is her name?!) instantly intrigued me when her husband walked up to my mother and I offering us homemade cookies. It struck my curiosity because rarely do you see that: home baked goods at such a large public event. It's funny how such a small act (although they were cut out cookies with jam centers, so really no small act) can tell you so much about a person.

Second Day of WWDMAGIC




With Abraham Maslavi, CEO & Co-owner of Jovani, and Julie DuRocher, the designer!




My second day at WWDMAGIC had less appointments, but remained just as thrilling as the day before. I took the time to explore the shows that I didn't have the time to explore on Monday: WWD White, WSA, and the Emerging Designer Showcase. In the morning my mother and I attended a blogger panel that was speaking on 'Storytelling through Social Media'. Which after touring several of the booths, I believe actually translates to 'sharing lifestyle through marketing'.
