#PassionForFashion: Are You An Emerging Talent?

Truth be told, we all are in various capacities. Claim it!! But as it relates to designing be it your own nail polish collection, fragrances, jewelry, accessories, handbags, etc, Open See is the place to be! Held twice annually by Henri Bendel at the flagship store in New York, this Designer Casting Call is a way to be seen! Todd Oldham, Anna Sui, Pamela Dennis ...Do those names ring a bell at all? Well did you know their careers were launched by Open See at a time when they were just emerging on the scene and their talent had not yet been fully recognized. Sound familiar? Open See takes place:

March 22, 2013 at 712 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY, 10019. Please be in line prior to 12pm in order to be seen. Our buyers will be viewing product for the Spring season in the following categories:
  • Cosmetics
  • Skincare
  • Fragrance
  • Gifts
  • Accessories (including but not limited to jewelry, handbags & small leather goods, belts, cold weather accessories, hats, & hair accessories)

Open See is legendary. We just love the fact that Henri Bendel extends the invitation to designers just like you, to take advantage of an opportunity to sit with buyers and have a one-on-one session in the hopes of being picked up and having your collection showcased in store. How awesome is that?! How often are you granted that level of direct accessibility? Do we really need to explain the value in this??? I think the concept speaks for itself.

Please share your comments ...Are you going to go? What time are you going to show up? What do you design?
