What I got at Blueprint Emporium!

The entire Blueprint Trade show and Emporium were pretty epic this year. I managed to ‘meet’ buyers from ASOS, LN-CC, Harvey Nichols HK etc, and the shopping days where PACKED with shoppers like me trying to buy items that you can’t normally get here.

I was meant to blog about what to buy at Blueprint Emporium this year BUT then again it’s impossible to name everything when there are 200+ brands from local designers, to CFDA awardees to amazing underground brands at the shopping event! On the last day I got only three items, very happy with what I purchased, although I really hoped that I could get my hands on a Ling Wu bag too…

I got this dress from Timo Weiland. I must have something from the label’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection because 1) I was there at that very show during last year’s New York Fashion Week 2) It was their very first show in the tent at Lincoln Centre and also my first time attending shows at the NYFW tents too. It means a lot to me if I have a piece of that collection, I think!

Q from Bangkok was such a hit at Blueprint – it was many people’s favorite booth and a lot of items were sold-out after a while.

Lalalove London is a Thai/UK brand that specializes in digital printed t-shirts. I remember myself going back 4 or 5 times trying to make up my mind on getting one shirt, and I got this in the end!
