Our Spring 12 collection begins shipping next week! So in the topsy turvy world of fashion that means that we are just finishing up our AW12 line now. Tradeshows start at the end of the month, so we figured we'd give everyone a run down of where to find the newest Miistas! This is one of the best parts of working in the fashion industry. True -- tradeshows are hard work, long hours and somewhat stressful BUT they're also a serious high school reunion type deal. Everyone in the international cult of shoes gets together, and those people who typically only exist in your inbox are suddenly are right there in the flesh! We are particularly excited for Vegas this year -- karaoke is currently being set up, reps vs buyers. Needless to say, it gets pretty real. This season we'll be attending four shows in Paris, Las Vegas, NYC and Milan. Buyers: if you would like to arrange an appointment please email us at email@example.com and we'll set it all up! PARIS: 21-24 January Who's Next Pret a Porter Premiere Classe -- Hall 3 Stand P01 "The essential international meeting point for fashion accessory designers.
