What a busy week! We're finally opening our bridal designer outlet store this week. Price tags and hangers and moving and jewelry and cleaning...whew! Also this week we've got a Special Occasion Trunk Show with JSS Knits and a bridal trunk show with Alvina Valenta Bridal.
Plus we've got Donnie Brown here at Stardust on Friday and Saturday to sign his new book. We just put the champagne in the frig to chill for Friday. Romanos bakery (a favorite!) is providing us with mini cupcakes for the book signing. D Magazine is co-sponsoring the event with us.
Next week, there's a HUGE out of town wedding that will take four of our staff off-site. More details to come post-wedding. The new bridal show "Unveiled" is next weekend as well and we've got two booths, runway shows and lots of transporting to do.
Today I was asked about our holiday decor plans and I couldn't even think that far ahead--
I haven't even finalized our schedule for the New York bridal market which is in just 3 weeks.
It looks like gown embellishment is back again. We've already seen a lot of beading and embroidery. Lace also remains very strong. We anticipate that a lot of the designers will be bringing their price points down due to the weak economy. Can't wait to see what's new!
