I've been looking for swimwear and lingerie exhibitions/events to attend in the UK this year to get a feel or taste of what to expect in this market once launching TenandLee's line. The last few weeks I have been looking in to attending some events and have found two big events located in London and Birmingham. I will be attending the London Swimwear Show on the 19th July and then the MODA show at the NEC Birmingham on the 9th August. Very excited about visiting both shows and finding out more information on how I can one day become an exhibitor in the near future.
I'm currently putting together some more ideas, brainstorming on new ideas for design options as a scrapbook to show the manufacturers, and will be arranging an appointment for mid July to get the ball rolling. First stages will be discussed in terms of fabrics; quantities of samples; production; time frame and so forth.
Some images of styles of interest will be disclosed from a preview of the TenandLee scrapbook ready for the next blog along with feedback from the 2nd draft of the business plan. I haven't yet looked in to prices for stalls at Carnivals in the UK, but have found reasonable prices to purchase a popup banner and will start to work designing the artwork once production is in motion.
TenandLee's next steps are; continuous research; completing scrapbook; looking into stall prices; business plan and overall expenditures.
