According to Jackie Astier, Creative Director of Astier, "Indigo is amazing resource. It's one-stop shopping. We found what we needed, and we found it quickly."
But there's more to Indigo New York than shopping. The bold creativity of the international exhibitors continues to inspire designers, buyers and other trendsetters.
"When it comes to forecasting trends, the prints that we see at Indigo guide us in the right direction," remarked Macy's Fashion Director Abby Samet. "The show is diverse, with both vintage and cutting-edge print houses. We definitely found inspiration."
From dreamy watercolors to edgy geometrics, the studios' ingenuity was on full display. Among Cherry Design Studio's (US) most popular motifs were tie-dyes, abstract watercolors and tile prints. Whiston and Wright (GB) sold several prints that mixed black and white with a single "pop" color. Printmixing is still going strong, as seen in The Colorfield's (GB/US) tropical mix prints. Animal-themed conversationals were also a hit for The Colorfield. Unique, handmade watercolors were a highlight of Lineastudio's (IT) collection. First-time exhibitor Studio Koo (HK) showcased sophisticated geometrics and heat-sealed embellishments.
Since this installment of Indigo New York takes place closer to summer '14 than January's show, it provides a more accurate perspective of the upcoming season. Both attendees and exhibitors affirmed this particular show's value.
"I'm glad that my first Indigo show was focused on the Summer season," commented Gabrielle Freeman, Director of Studio Koo. "I've been able to make a heap of new contacts. In terms of public relations, the show's been great, and I'm going to come back."
Next up, Première Vision New York and Indigo New York will showcase together on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday 23. This will mark their first combined Fall/Winter show.
