It’s an otherworldly city, in the middle of the desert, filled with lights, outlandish occupants, entertainment, and most importantly, Magic. I’m not referring to the David Copperfield show at MGM Grand. No, I’m referring to Magic Trade Show, and the Glik’s buying team traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada this week for the sole fashionable purpose of style.
This monster of a convention plays host to shoe, apparel, and accessory brands from ALL over. If you’re in retail, no matter what your division, this is the place to be. Literally, there is so much going on in this small 72 hour window of time that–if you’re not careful– you have a chance of loosing your mind to sensory overload.
Here’s just a sneak peek of what happened in Vegas.
Day 1: As soon as the Glik’s team landed we checked our luggage and headed straight to the show. I spent the day with the Woman’s buying team at Magic.
Our current obsession: Chevron.
LA Idol denim
Love these riding boots.
Day 2 was spent with the men’s team at Project.
Looking at new styles of 1897 denim.
New brand alert: Trademark Brooklyn Cloth.
Silver Jeans Co. with Jim Glik
Day 3 was spent with the women’s team again at Magic. We met with morning appointments then spent the afternoon looking for new fashion brands.
Meanwhile, back home in the Midwest…
Late afternoon we learned our fate. Our flight had been cancelled and we were stuck in Las Vegas for an extra day. Drat!
We had to make due with our unfortunate circumstance by working poolside while under the attentive eyes of Glik’s President, Jeff Glik and Vice President, James Glik.
We can’t wait to share with you more photos from Magic Trade Show! Stay tuned!!
