The Store's first Buying trip
Posted on 11 January 2016
Our first buying trip to London was a great success. Before we went to London we reached out to a number of wholesalers that stocked brands we wanted to sell at The Store and made appointments with each.
We left Dublin on the red-eye flight armed with tea, coffees and pastries and headed to our first appointment.
Liz in Selfservice is a pleasure to deal with. We arrived into the showroom to see amazing samples and the cutest doggies! Their dogs snooze around the showroom all day and it was such a relaxed vibe, we loved it.
We started off viewing The Fifth label Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The Fifth is an Australian fashion label that consists of some great basic pieces, perfect for The Store. In particular, we love their great basics featuring stripe tees and skirts. We are excited for this collection to arrive at The Store in February.
Sundry is another label that Selfservice work with and we love this American brand. They have the most amazing, softest cotton t-shirts in great colours and witty slogans. We will launch the Spring/Summer Sundry collection at The Store in February and we can’t wait for you to see this amazing brand.
Our Rails shirts are a bestselling item at The Store. We have loved this brand for a long time and we were so excited to stock this label.
Rails are an American brand that is famous for its super soft, wearable check shirts. Rails have an amazing celebrity following. Rails shirts are so versatile and can be worn all year round.
Our Denim brand DL 1961 is the best on the market. Made using patented XFIT technology fabric that adapts to your unique body shape to give custom fit and comfort these jeans will not sag or lose shape.
Marcelle was lovely to deal with and we have just launched our exciting UK & Ireland exclusive style at The Store, the Amanda petite skinny denim. Check it out below.
After a long, exciting, tiring day we headed home armed with information to launch The Store.
We have a lot more fantastic collections to come at The Store and hope you are enjoying following our journey with us.
