IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Ndau Collection invited to show at MAGIC, Las Vegas in Emerging Accessories Designers Showcase
By Christie Brookstein
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe –The Ndau Collection have had the great honour of being selected as Emerging Accessories Designers and as such have been invited to showcase at prestigious trade and industry show MAGIC, held in Las Vegas from 19th to 21st of February 2013. This showcase will mark the official launch of The Ndau Collection brand in The United States, reaching buyers from all over the world over the three days of MAGIC.
In their own words, MAGIC is where the international community of apparel, accessories and footwear professionals trades information, previews trends, builds business and shops fashion unlike anywhere else in the industry. Each February and August, tens of thousands of attendees from over 80 countries meet more than 5,000 emerging-to-established brands to spark the strategic connections that become the relationships of tomorrow. Capitalizing on 78 years of experience, the show continues to evolve. Claiming 40% growth since 2009, MAGIC unites the largest and most influential network of buyers, brands, media and decision makers. With an average of nearly $200 million in per-day order volume and 67% of the top NPD buying teams in attendance, more business is done at MAGIC than any other fashion retail trade event.
The last 12 months have seen a huge growth in the Ndau Collection brand, culminating in this industry recognition of the fact that Ndau is capable of being a worldwide brand, whilst still being strongly rooted on the African continent. The Ndau team is in full production mode, creating new collections for the showcase, following on from their success in accessorising the beautiful South African songstress Zahara at the Victoria Falls Carnival over the New Year’s festivities. The new collections will feature their signature eclectic mix of lost wax cast sterling silver, antique African trade beads with exotic skins and materials. The Ndau Collection will be represented by Christie Brookstein, one of the four member design team, who will meet with prospective buyers throughout the duration of MAGIC, followed by a private trunkshow in Los Angeles for Ndau Collection clients. Any interested buyers or clients are welcome to contact The Ndau Collection team via email to book appointments at MAGIC or to request to attend the trunkshow.
