We’re excited to announce that Style Fox will be a sponsor and official media correspondent for COAST Show on February 23 and 24th in NYC. COAST is a specialized global fashion trade exhibition with a focus on curated luxury and emerging designers.
COAST was founded by Karen Bennett, a Chicago native who got her start as coordinator for the contemporary market at Stylemax. She then moved on to ENK International where she remained for 5 years as the director of client relations, eventually becoming the coordinator for Intermezzo.
Karen’s passion for fashion ultimately led to launching her own show in January 2006. COAST Show debuted in Miami and has since tripled in size in numerous locations, including Chicago and Boston. Over 250 collections and showrooms including Milly, Mara Hoffman, robbi & nikki, Halston, Citizens of Humanity, Vince, James Jeans, Hudson, Joe’s Jeans, J Brand, L’Atelier Group, Hotline Showroom, Simon Showroom, Joey Showroom, Lily Kate Showroom, Community Service, The Globe Showroom, 10eleven Showroom, Hatch Showroom and eM Productions and hundreds of others have flocked to COAST’s ever expanding exhibition.
COAST Show sets itself apart from other shows by creating a highly curated, fun, intimate, and artistic experience. In addition to an array of incredible designers, COAST NY will feature artwork, an exclusive blogger/editor event, and a “rewind” beauty lounge that will help attendees unwind with complimentary make-up application, blowouts, and mini-facials.
“We feel that by exhibiting through our more intimate setting collections will experience a more successful market with a higher return on investment. All participating brands are selected and either invited or pre-approved via collection linesheets or lookbooks to ensure compatibility and market relevancy.” said Shirley Sanchez, COAST’s Manager of Sales & Brand Relations.
“Having a highly curated selection with defined elements are what differentiates us from the other commercial shows which will give our retailers another reason to come in and shop with us. We want our brands to get the most value for their investment. It helps that our target market is the same focus as our designers. This allows us to create a clear and direct message to our retailers promoting the show as well as the brands. We recognize that our job and our relationship cannot stop at the end of a show. We know we need to do the same amount of work for retailer outreach as our exhibitors do because this will benefit all involved.”
A few amazing emerging designers exhibiting at COAST this month include Erin Barr, Christiana J. Paul, Jess Rizzuti, Bogelund-Jensen, Jack Germain, C. Blau, Minka Toeth, Maika, and Porcelaine & Stone, amongst others.
Style Fox will be there catching all the action with designer interviews and live correspondence throughout the show. Keep up with all the fun and fashion via Style Fox’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Interviews will also be posted on Style Fox’s as well as COAST’s YouTube channels.
