With your support, I can debut new designs from Red Bridge Studio (RBS) at the NY Now trade show this August. Yes August.
Drawing on my background in photography and printmaking, I develop the patterns found through out the line. Fabric is hand screen printed, then cut and sewn to produce the final product. The new patterns are organic in scope and created for bags, t-shirts, and home products.
It's been a year of forward momentum. The first exhibition took place in Philadelphia during the winter, resulting in new stores carrying RBS products. The next stop is to debut at NY Now: the Market for Home & Lifestyle. The show runs from August 17-21 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. It's the "marketplace for fashion-forward, design driven home, gift, and lifestyle" products. Retailers from around the US and abroad attend this show to buy for their holiday season.
RBS products have been available at various venues and events including: The Brooklyn Flea, The SoWa Market, New York Rugby Club holiday parties, and the very streets of NYC, in Chelsea and DUMBO. New retailers were added following the winter trade show. Exhibiting at NY Now is my next step in broadening product availability. Offering new prints and colors is important for keeping customers and buyers engaged.
Exhibiting helps with meeting buyers and building relationships. I am excited to debut new designs for the upcoming holiday season. This can be achieved with your backing and pledges.

Risks and challenges
Timing may be a unique challenge. Red Bridge Studio is in the Handmade Section of the trade show which opens on Saturday August 17, just one short week after the campaign closes. The risk to you is that I may have more orders from the show to fulfill, that your rewards may take a little longer. If such an issue arises, I will notify backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
