Playtime New York is just around the corner (August 1st-3rd) and I’m doing something special this time around! I’m giving you a very exclusive sneak peek of some of the top labels and trends that you have to look forward to. We have some new, exciting labels presenting as well as the seasoned labels that we just can’t get enough of. So, whether you are someone who will be attending the show, or just a kid’s fashion fan, here is my fab rundown.
And in case you are wondering what all the fuss is about, Playtime is one of the foremost Childrenswear trade shows and continues to forge ahead in this whole universe of kids fashion (and maternity wear). They have shows in Paris, NYC and Tokyo and have been a huge player and promoter of this international market.
And Playtime New York will present its 11th edition on August 1st – 3rd, 2015, at the Metropolitan Pavilion, in the heart of Chelsea, NYC.
And a special opportunity if you are a professional buyer:
To celebrate this event, Playtime New York is giving away a trip to Paris! The lucky winner will get a trip to Paris in January 2016, so that they can attend the 19th edition of Playtime Paris, the largest Playtime rendez-vous, which every season attracts 470 ready-to-wear, design and layette brands. To be in the running, go the Playtime site for details: www.playtimenewyork.com/pre-registration
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you for the official drawing on Tuesday August 4th!
