Count down to London Fashion Week…

We are one of 20 designers selected to take part in the Regenerate Japan pop-up store and exhibition during London Fashion Week. Taking place from the 16th -19th September at The Reading Room Gallery in Soho, the event is supported by Nolcha and Japan Fashion Week, and is to showcase the Spring/Summer Collections of select designers.

I am so excited about this event! I adore London Fashion Week and welcome innovative events like this. We are very proud to be taking part and having this opportunity to present our collection in this great city and at the same time support a truly wonderful cause.

Set in a beautiful Japanese garden installation designed by Ben Charles Edwards, the event will also have some special highlights throughout the weekend, including Japanese nail bars, sushi service and Japanese tea ceremonies.

The Nadia Minkoff collection of bags and jewellery will be showcased in the pop-up shop area of the event, and each store will raise money for the Japan Tsunami and Earthquake foundations, with 25% of profits going directly towards the Regenerate Japan fund.

ABOUT REGENERATE JAPAN:
Regenerate is a project that unites artists and retailers to raise funds for charity. Regenerate is about new life, growth and is created by the renowned director and filmmaker Ben Charles Edwards, who has rapidly made a name for himself with a queue of celebrity suitors from the film and fashion worlds such as Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Boy George, Sally Phillips, Giles Deacon, Zandra Rhodes, Piers Atkinson and others who are vying to infuse Edwards’ extraordinarily inventive aesthetics into their projects. Regenerate is coordinated in association with Freya Olsen and Regenerate Japan is the first project of this kind.

Nadia Minkoff signs deal with Kenya Airways to create exclusive travel wallet

 

I am so happy to announce that we have been selected to create an exclusive travel wallet for sale onboard with Kenya Airways. The unisex wallet will be available onboard from October 2011.

We have just finalised all the details and I can’t wait to show you – but I will have to!

I can’t show you any photos at this stage but as soon as the new inflight magazine is out I will post some photos. But just wanted to share the good news now!

PURE LONDON Slideshow

Here is a short slideshow showing some photos from our booth at PURE LONDON last week.

It was a great show for us and we received positive feedback from our visitors (and some very nice orders!) for our SS2012 collection.

PURE success

We had a great few days a PURE London this week! Of course the terrible events happening across the capital did not help numbers, particularly on the last day, but everyone was keeping upbeat and focused on business.

We had a great location (J61) and I met with many new buyers as well as our existing customers from around the UK and a few from overseas. Our SS2012 collection of handbags was very well received – I am always so inspired when we do these shows and it is very encouraging when people stop by to look and feel the bags. We always receive compliments on the leathers we use and this time we received many positive comments about the embossed leathers for the season.

The collection also had a great response on the PURE LONDON catwalks during the week and we will share photos from the event as soon as the organisers release them. We will have a new catwalk video too (You can see the catwalk video from earlier this year here).

For now, here are some snaps of our both… and Sawako!

In February and September, The Box goes to New York to meet the whole of the fashion world, who have gathered to attend the most eagerly awaited shows.
