I’ve just come from our Facebook page where one of our members (and my co-organizer) Barbara from the blog hodge:podge wrote: “Less than 12 hours!”
Less than 12 hours to what you ask?
The launch of the IDS West trade show and – tonight specifically – their Opening Night Party, that’s what!
Our Cdn.dlbWEST network members are excited!!
Many of our members will start the evening with a private tour of the IDS West show floor where we’ll see all the exhibitors – fantastic design houses like 18Karat, BoConcept, Live Edge Design Inc. and Straight Line Designs, just to name but a very few.
What a fabulous way to start the night!
Then comes the party!!
Tonight’s IDS West Opening Night Party is presented by FloForm Countertops and it features anticipated fashion hits from Vancouver Fashion Week (scheduled to take place the week of November 1st). Music will be pumped out by Montreal's DJ Mario Galego and I’m sure he’ll be keeping us revved up!
It’ll be a night celebrating fashion, design, art and architect; we’re going to have a blast!
Something to keep an eye out for… some of our Network members will be interviewing select designers/artists/architects, etc. from IDS West. As interviews get published to our members’ blogs, we’ll be sure to link to them so you can read about some of the uber-talented individuals taking part in the show this weekend!
In the mean time, here’s a list of who we’re interviewing along with links to their websites so you can see in advance just how fabulous they are!!
