A day in the life of a fashion Agent

On Sunday I spent the day with Karen Oliver, my sales agent for Nomads, Bohemia and Sence Copenhagen

In fact Karen is agent for eight brands - 5 clothing labels - Skunkfunk, Mistral, Muted Tones, Nomads and Bohemia and 3 accessory brands - Sence Copenhagen, Doris & Dude and From The Source.

When she's not showing at her showroom in Glasgow, she's on the road with her samples visiting boutiques.  On top of that she has sales meetings with her brands at least twice a year and trade shows.  

She also finds the time to do some styling work and personal shopper appointments too.

 

I was buying Nomads for SS18 and the collection is gorgeous with so many lovely prints and of course beautiful fabrics. We spent the afternoon trying on the samples to see which styles will work for my customers and I'm really pleased with my Nomads buy.  

 Here's a little sneak peak of what you can look forward to for next summer.

 

After the appointment we went back to Karen's house. It was time for wine and later on chicken fajitas (almost minus the chicken, but that's another story!)

 

The following morning we were up early playing in her back garden with Gracie (her three year old daughter) and afterwards got on with buying Sence Copenhagen jewellery (in our pjs) for AW17 which will be in store very soon.  

 

 

      

We then headed back in to Glasgow stopping off at "The Van" for lunch before I was off to another buying appointment before heading home to Edinburgh.
