BLANDÓN Trunk Show Miami: Success

trunk show“: a special sale in which vendors present merchandise directly to store personnel or select customers at a retail location or another unique venue. In many cases it allows store personnel to preview and/or purchase merchandise before it is made available to the public. It is particularly desirable to have the actual designer present at the event. Most small businesses do this to get more buys.-Wikipedia

Our intimate trunk show held in Miami this past July turned out to be a success!  The afternoon was filled with fashion, camaraderie, and lots of champagne!  Attendees where able to view, sport, and purchase a few of our Fall 2012 collection.  We thank each and every individual that participated and attended the show.  Special gratitude to our dear friends Christopher Martinez for so graciously opening the doors to his home by hosting the event and to Sandra Morales for supplying her photography skills and time creating some vivid images from the event.

Our next trunk show is to be held in the fashion Mecca New York City this fall!  Stay tuned for details…

Enjoy…we sure did!

From CHANEL, with love

Have you or someone you know wrongfully used the fashion label ‘CHANEL’?  Are you guilty of using words or phrases such as “CHANEL for now” “CHANEL-issime” “CHANEL-ed” “CHANEL-esq” “CHANEL-ized” or any word/phrase using the CHANEL name to describe something that is not actually tagged with the CHANEL label ?  If so, the advertisement posted on the last page of WWD(Women’s Wear Daily) today, Monday, June 18, 2012, is targeted and meant just for you!

It seems as though the world-renowned and well-recognized label CHANEL is fed up with editors, advertisers, copywriters, and “well-intentioned mis-users” using the brand name to describe something that may be similar to a CHANEL piece but is not.  As it is clearly stated in the advertisement, they recognize their style is famous but a piece is not a CHANEL piece if it was not designed, created, and tagged by CHANEL.  The ad continues by stating how flattered they are by those “CHANEL-ized” words created and used, but they need to stop.  To finalize, they mention how much their lawyers detest this.  Threat? Possibly.

We at BLANDÓN recognize and respect the elegance and high-fashion that is CHANEL.  Although we see the use of the name CHANEL in the context described in the advertisement as flattery, we also understand the importance and value of a real CHANEL piece.  The label has been a major contributor and leader in the fashion industry.  From its’ roots and beginnings providing women with self-confidence and empowerment to the lifestyle it is today, CHANEL deserves our respect and acknowledgement.  We also think the ad not only advertises the mis-use of the brand name, but also serves as a full-page ad simply about CHANEL reminding us of their uniqueness and prestige.

What do you say?
