CRIB IS PLEASED TO PRESENT YOU WITH A RARE OPPORTUNITY OR MEET RETAILS BUYERS
As an independent or emerging fashion designer, few things are more intimidating than trying to sell yourself, and your designs, to a buyer.
In this exclusive session with retail buyers, CRIB members will have the rare opportunity to understand what buyers and merchandisers look for in suitable indie brands. This is a great learning opportunity for you to receive honest feedback about your product designs and unique selling proposition to established retailers.
There is an application and selection process to participate in this Meet The Buyers Session. The selected fashion brand will have the opportunity to pitch to buyers from local multi-label stores on a one-on-one basis.
Make sure you’re not dropping by empty handed. Come dressed in your brand’s collection, prepare a presentation deck that depicts your brand profile, DNA, bring your look book (featuring 5-10 of your designs) and also 2-3 samples of your designs to share with the buyers. Please note, if you are chosen to participate in this session, please send us your presentation slide no later than May 6.
