Playtime New York-Here I Come

July 29, 2011

Heading to Playtime New York tomorrow morning (5:30 a.m. flight out of Pittsburgh- IKES) and I am thrilled to go.  One of my clients, a luxury childrenswear brand, invited me.  I plan to cover the event completely, dragging my new Nikon camera I bought just before I joined Burns White as a congratulatory gift to myself.

Playtime is an international tradeshow dedicated to the universes of children’s, junior and maternity products.  As I understand it, there is a show in Paris and Tokyo as well at different times of the year.

 

Playtime New York  is hosting a Pop Up Shop during the show, entitled “Playtime Loves Japan” 100 percent of the proceeds to benefits K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations), Japan Earthquake Relief.  Merchandise donated by the designers, will be sold 70% off the retail price.   

Brands in the popup shop include:  Antik Batik, Baby Version Rock, Bensimon, Flora and Henri, Green Kids, Hélène Cousin Bébé, Kico Kids, Le Marchand d’Etoiles, Little Marcel, Sunbird, Zef, and many more.

 I will follow up with a blog post about the experience.  Check out this gorgeous video re: the event.
