So much has happened in the past six months, it's hard to know where to begin! Our first collection has received great feedback from customers, store buyers and press who all love the unique designs and luxury materials. The inspiration pages of our website have also been a huge hit as people enjoy seeing where the ideas of their bags come from!
Not surprisingly, our clutches have proved popular for weddings also. We have been featured in a few magazines both in the UK and across the pond in the US, including this lovely photoshoot from Bridal Guide Magazine and coverage in Perfect Weddings, Wedding Flowers & Accessories and Asian Bride.
The great news doesn't stop there though, our clutch bags are now included on two exciting platforms for designers: Modafirma and Handbag Designer 101. We are really excited to be able to work with these sites to reach a global audience searching for that special bag.
So what does the Stacy Chan brand have planned for the next six months? We are excited to report that we have not one, but two prestigious trade shows coming up. The first is this weekend at Scoop International based in London in the Saatchi and Phillips Galleries. This is a great showcase for design-led brands to exhibit their collections surrounded by interesting art installations.
The second trade show is at The Box at Paris Fashion Week! In September, we will be joining some of the best designers from around the world to exhibit in arguably the most prestigious fashion week - what a dream come true! Expect some live twitter updates about our time in Paris.
In the midst of all this, I somehow found the time to travel to some beautiful places that will undoubtedly inspire many collections to come. I have been hard at work designing and producing new clutch bags for the coming Autumn/Winter, which will be available for pre-order in August. Here is a taste of the amazing photo shoot for one of the themes of this collection. I can't wait to introduce these new bags to the world!
