I was lucky enough to travel Las Vegas to attend MAGIC this year as part of Team Stylesmith. I have never been to the show in a social media capacity, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Obviously long days and nights laid ahead of us, but what I didn’t expect was how much I would learn! Between all of the Social House panels and Sourcing Panels I attended, I definitely learned a lot more about the fashion industry than I ever though I would. I also walked about a dozen football fields a days.
One of the highlights of the show was the event the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace held for our Bloggers. After a long day on the floor, it was such a treat to be treated with wine, scallops and burgers at PJ Clarke’s. This was followed by a private shopping tour to Ted Baker and Elie Tahari where we had a chance to view the spring goodies. The evening concluded at Max Brenner where I experienced more than one chocolate churro and a glass of champagne.
Back to the MAGIC show….The manufacturing and textile focused Sourcing show was a truly international experience and had countries designated areas:It wasn’t long before someone approached me and spoke Mandarin Chinese!
Over at WWD MAGIC, there was a runway show everyday at 2pm. I was so busy that I didn’t make it until the last day. Check out my vine video of it.
And of course I have to give a shout out to my two favorite Brits - Kelsi Smith and Jazmine Rocks (who I have adopted as a little sister) who are appropriately sitting on union jack sofas.
Hope to see you soon MAGIC!
