During the madness of fashion week we were lucky enough to sit down briefly with Shopbop's delightfully upbeat buyers Jenny Fuchs and Juster Warner. From the great heels-versus-flats debate, to MBFWA's new home, to their take on our local blogger pack, we had quite the chat. . .
- What shows have you seen, and liked, so far? Jenny: We’ve seen so many! I think they’ve all been really good and as the week goes on, one is just better than the last. I think the ones for me that have stood out have been the ones that have been a little more transitional. The ones that are too Spring/Summer-ish are harder for us to buy into, but the ones that have bridged the gap with layering pieces and jackets and some leathers — I think those would be the ones that we will probably go after.
- Do you have any favourite designers from the week? Justin: I think that there was consistently strong showing across the board. From our designer boutique, I already do buy Ellery and Dion Lee and I was very happy with them. Jenny: They were awesome!
- Any recurring trends that you’ve spotted on the runway? Jenny: There are a lot of digital and graphic prints
