Event Recap: The Bridal Party & EPIC Expo

I know this is long overdue but it's been a bit of a whirlwind lately with events, bridal season business and all of the excitement of the Stanley Cup Playoffs! (We're Vancouverites, so pretty much every second day since the playoffs began has been considered a write off.)
The Bridal Party
This bridal show has to have been one of our favourite bridal shows to date! The smaller show and intimate atmosphere meant that we could spend a lot of one-on-one time with the brides-to-be. Typically, in larger shows, you're just struggling to keep up and greet each attendee but this show allowed us to answer all of the brides' questions and even create small take-home packages with swatches in their colour palettes. Can't wait for next year's party!
Since we're typically all things bridal, doing an eco show was definitely something refreshing and out of the ordinary. It was great to be able to share the booth our studio mate, SWFDS, as well as a few other resident designers to the studio. Running with the green theme, we brought our up-cycled clutches, which use fabric remnants that we've gathered from other projects and designers. When we weren't talking to attendees and answering questions we helped out with the some of the sewing workshops going on with SWFDS and even walked away with a few rosette hairpins of our own. The event attracted hundreds over the three days, so it's safe to say that we nothing less than exhausted by the end of it!
