Before the trade show, SmartDeco was approached by retail experts from Metamorphosis, who identified our range as representing a key retail and style trend for 2014. They highlighted the Poppy Upcycled Denim Cross-Body Bag for use in their presentations to the show audience.
The Poppy Bag was selected for a display of on-trend items set inside larger than life size 3D books, each representing a key theme, in a prominent location of Spring Fair – the Hall 5 Gift Box area. This display presented key on-trend exhibitor products for 2014, which the speakers Ellie Kidson and Eve Reid of Metamorphosis discussed in their talks.
