Change, Change, Change

March 06, 2017

I have just returned from MAGIC (Men's Apparel & Garment Industry of California) in Las Vegas, the largest garment show in the world with over 100,000 attendees from all over the world. I have been attending MAGIC for over 20 years, every February and August. I meet with many of my current vendors and look for new vendors as well. I have conversations with many great merchants from all over the US.
I take time every day to write down what I learned--and spend time on reflection on how I can improve the store and myself.
This trip was no different--so much enthusiasm, excitement, and creativity-- that my head is still spinning.How do I bring back to Clarion the excitement of a new season?  And share with you the fashion that is exploding?
I will be conversing with you about some of the new lines and products that are headed our way; I know change is here to stay.  One of the newest lines arriving tomorrow is Vineyard Vines. Started in the South, Vineyard Vines has worked its way North--with great new wovens and knits. The quality is excellent and the colors and plaids are rich in tradition.  I think you will love this new addition to the store and look forward to showing it to you!

And we want to let you in on a little secret - fathers like to receive gifts! Yes, it's true! They may say they don't want or need anything, but surprise them with the perfect gift and revel in their excitement and joy.
