The second reason is that as I expected there was no real change from October’s market to this market in the overall trend point of view. If I had to pick one theme, it would continue to be what I call Industrial Chic & Euro Vintage. It’s still out there in a big way. I’ve decided it is a better and reinvented version of the Cottage trend from the 90’s – remember Beach Side Cottage, Country Cottage, and Shabby Chic Cottage. Those hung around for years and so will this. Which is fine. Like I’ve said before there are parts I really like – the linen, farmhouse chic, and some of the vintage. Just remember I also said – moderation.

One other side note on trend - due to my run in with the Law I only had about ¾ of a day at the market and generally just walked the temporary spaces and only a few of the designer and larger showrooms. Although, as I noted Industrial Chic & Euro Vintage was still very prevalent, there seemed to be one other thing emerging. I noticed a move toward more refinement - a little more glamour & sophistication.
