"NY NOW is a huge part of our sourcing. It’s convenient for us, And I also love how NY NOW is going into this new level. They’re re-imagining the show and getting very creative, so they’re listening too. They get it, and they’re changing their programs. This market has been markedly different,and I think really improved and very buyer friendly. There’s an excitement in the air, so I love the direction that they’re going in. It’s nice to see familiar faces But I also try challenge myself and go into booths that I necessarily wouldn’t, to push myself to being open, and I find some really lovely surprises. Coming to NY NOW really enables me to find new vendors as well as continue the relationships with my ongoing vendors, and that makes a difference for me. It’s a very efficient show as a buyer.”
