It was so great seeing you at COUTURE and COUTUREtime 2018! We were thrilled to hear from so many of our brands that they had an incredible show, and our retailers and press were simply overwhelmed by the beauty and creativity on display throughout the show. The COUTURE Design Awards, back in the Encore Theater, were an absolute highlight of the show and featured an awe-inspiring selection of finalists and winners. It was so moving to watch as Paul Schneider, the owner of Twist, received the Cindy Edelstein Award based on his generosity and mentorship towards so many of our COUTURE designers. COUTUREtime was also a great success for our exhibiting brands, and it was exciting to witness as our newest addition to the show officially hit its stride! Our partnership with RedBar was very well-received, and our brands were delighted with the opportunity to either deepen their existing relationships with this invested group of enthusiasts, or forge new alliances.
We are so thankful to all of our brands, our retailer partners and our attending media, as well as our numerous sponsors, who helped make COUTURE and COUTUREtime such a success; your continued commitment to this community is what sets us apart in this industry. We look forward to seeing you throughout the coming year, as well as at COUTURE and COUTUREtime 2019!
