Mark your calendar! Henri Bendel’s Open See is scheduled for Friday, March 22 at their flagship New York store. This semi-annual legendary casting call is open to emerging and established designers and will give you the opportunity to meet with the buying team in a one-on-one presentation that typically lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
How it works
Those participating in the open call should be in line by 12 pm. Historically, those that have arrived between 5 and 6am have been seen first.
To prepare, designers should have their products easily accessible and merchandised, have selling materials like look books and linesheets and be ready to deliver a compelling, succinct pitch because time and space is limited.
What the buyers want
The buying team will be reviewing spring collections and are interested in the following product categories:
- Accessories (including but not limited to jewelry, handbags & small leather goods, belts, cold weather accessories, hats, & hair accessories)
Note: Henri Bendel will not review men’s or women’s clothing or shoes.
- When: Friday, March 22, 2013
