Où est le train?
Preparations are underway for our next big buying trip in Paris. Most of the products you currently see on our website are spring releases which were shown at the February shows in London and Birmingham (Pure and Moda) or at the same shows last autumn. But the biggest industry event of the calendar is coming soon, when swimwear and lingerie manufacturers from around the world showcase their designs for 2015 at Paris Mode City.
For Airy Mary, it's a rare chance to meet South American suppliers and also a few European suppliers who don't attend the UK shows.We love the Carey range by Ory, but they only go up to and E cup. An opportunity to lobby for some larger cup sizes won't be wasted by us. We also like a couple of Turkish brands, Zeki and Ay Yildiz, but they too haven't seen the light with regards to cup sized swimwear bigger than a C.
So we've booked Eurostar, we're choosing a hotel and all phones will be diverted to whoever we leave behind! Mais oui, someone has to stay...
