Project Trade Show
Was kind of wack. I mean it was really nice to be honest. But esthetically, and location and feel was. It was really really nice and more personal than capsule is, which is more white and grey and seems colder. The Project show overall is better than capsule, but as a customer and a designer I'm a huge critic of clothing. So I wasn't really impressed by a lot of things I saw. Most of it blended with each other and it ALL looked like American Heritage clothing, but dirty and, well I wouldn't really call it grunge, but it just looked vintage. Had a very old look to it. Just about every booth had an american flag in it, to show "authenticity" I guess? Which just further proved that the brands lacked individuality and cleverness. There was one brand that really stuck out to me, and that was Sir New York. I'll do a blog post about them later, but they were really the only clothing brand that stood out and looked different, and actually seemed to care about having their own esthetic. The upside of the show is that I got to learn a lot about what was going on in the industry and gain some tips and see a lot of people I had not seen in a while. Oh and I got to meet Nick Wooster haha Take a look at some pictures.
