#ThoseSummerSights
The best trends of summer 2016


Just as quickly as summer arrived, it's beginning to wind down. As we dive into August, sporting (and selling) the trends that the season brought us, let's take a moment to celebrate our favorites. These will follow us into the fall and throughout the holidays, so the idea is not to let them become a summer memory but, rather, keep them on your list to stock for the upcoming season. Click over to the latest edition of the Trend Files and decide which of these looks you love the best.

LUXURY Privé 2016 Highlights & Event in Review

2016 HIGHLIGHTS & EVENT IN REVIEW

On Tuesday, July 26, LUXURY Privé closed out an unforgettable 2016 event with a bittersweet goodbye to the iconic Waldorf Astoria. The 3-day event brought together decision-makers from elite retail stores and fine jewelry brands and designers for what many deemed their "favorite show." Don't just take our word for it; here is what two Insiders had to say:

"LUXURY Privé delivers a show year after year that is like no other. The retailers who attend are serious, qualified, decision-makers and there's also a variety. We've conducted meaningful meetings with buyers we had touch points with in Vegas and were able to continue the conversation here. We also met with buyers who were not in Vegas. A lot of order writing all three days with new and existing clients and have exciting prospects; no matter which way you look at it, this show is unrivaled to any other on the calendar - it is simply the most effective use of time with lasting results." - Susan Klemt, Artistry

"I work with only a handful of the vendors that showed here... although I knew about most of them. I took the time to introduce myself to many of the vendors. I asked them to tell me about themselves and their lines. I was pleasantly surprised to find many new vendors with whom I can do business. I discovered new sources and opened new accounts. Due to the intimacy of the event, I was able to stand at booths without being jostled or feeling I was taking too much of the vendor's time. I enjoyed the entire experience and, of course, I always appreciate the gracious accommodations provided to me."
- Marica Frasca, Frasca Jewelers

A few event highlights the industry can't stop talking about:

  • Welcoming over 25 new brands to LUXURY Privé this year, veterans were pleased to find many new vendors whom they can do business with
