Ron and I were sitting at the table last night after Zac went to bed, just talking about My Little Pretty and what I think the next step is going to be. I’m committed to buyer shows throughout the end of the season (Sept) and then have a few regular retail-ish sales that I’m doing October and November, but I need to add some more.
I can’t help but think that really, now is the time to strike Internationally. We need to get some accessory agents out there to help us get the line in the right stores overseas. So last night when Ron and I were talking about it, he said, “well, let’s start researching which shows we can do and try to work it out to go.” So now I need to find the best fashion/accessory trade show that London has to offer so he and I can take a business trip over there and try to make things happen at a show, with agents and by walking the streets and trying to get more information.
I put out a few feelers to people I know in London as well as other designers that might know “someone” to refer me to. It’s not as easy to break into a market overseas as I would like it to be. Don’t they know how FABULOUS My Little Pretty is? hah
To me, it seems like the perfect time to hit overseas for sales when our dollar is in the tank … after all … it’ll seem like pennies to them right now and once they are hooked and our dollar takes a turn, the masses will already be addicted 😉
