The Margin Tradeshow is a lot smaller than your average tradeshow, with a focus on smaller, indie, niche brands. There were some really fantastic discoveries to be made and I was particularly enamoured with Karlinka, an Austrian line.
The fabrics are traditional folk fabrics in super saturated colours and fashioned into vintage inspired dresses, creating this saccharine feast for the eyeballs. I'd wear every piece. The work was impeccably done and felt fresh.
My other favourite of the day had to be the Me and Zena jewelry line. Completely whimsical and fun but chunky and substantive. The pencil and sharpener inspired line is ingenious and I want every piece, particularly the pencil bangle and sharpener ring.
I feel like fashion is having a love affair with pencils right now (hello – Mary Katrantzou!) and I'm totally on board.
