I was so thrilled to have exhibited in New York City at the leading Trend Forecasting Event in the world, Premiere Vision. To have my studio be a part of such a large industry event was a huge goal of mine and it feels so amazing to have been a part of the Spring Summer Trends in Fashion for 2017.
The Britt Laspina Studio exhibited a number of prints that fell under different collections, including a Floral, Tribal, Oriental, Monochrome and Watercolour Blues Collection. This collection is still open for preview under the Print Design section on the website, login details can be granted upon request.
Safe to say the show was a success and I'm so excited to have some amazing new clients based in New York, Boston, Cape Cod and The Hamptons.
I also had the pleasure of being interviewed by New York writer, Natalie Zfat for Apparel News, California.
"One new exhibitor on that list is 22-year-old textile designer Britt Laspina. Not only is this Laspina’s first Première Vision show, it’s her first show ever.
It would be poor taste to list all of the incredible people that I met, but something that will make my local Australian readers laugh is Peter Alexander decided to approach and introduce himself to me. After hearing my accent he immediately asked if I was from Sydney or Melbourne, much to his shock I answered " Ahh.. Brisbane actually!" Yes Peter, you heard me! The look on his face still makes me laugh, if Miranda Kerr and the G20 can't put Brisbane on the map than maybe I might have to keep trying..
