SAMA BABY GIVEAWAY – FIRST TIME EVER! March 27, 2009
of course, it was a usual Thursday for a young fashion designer in Houston.
Landed myself at the Audi dealership with Houston Magazine – Modern Luxury and their fabulous event – Spring Fete.
Wonderful Neiman Marcus Spring 2009 looks on cute little models – which by the way, were super young!
Of course, the bar was packed with beautiful people holding Grey Goose rimmed to the top martinis that were ooh too strong.
As DD for my three girlfriends, I opted for a glass of white, and headed on my way to meet up with some other fashionistas in the group, as well as some of my friends at Modern Luxury.
It was wonderful – meeting with so many fresh faces, even though the weather earlier in the day was T-Storm warning, horribly rainy. It’s great that even in Houston – the weather doesn’t stop em!
Finally home, and ready for bed. Just needed to blog about how great
fashion can be in the city of Houston – and how excited everyone was to learn about Sama Baby Organics – and organic cotton baby clothing!
I met some great people involved in the green, sustainable world, and truly enjoyed conversing about Sama Baby, our mission, values, and what organic cotton really means. Seems like a vlog might be coming over me VERY soon!
Looks like rain isn’t going to stop Spring Fashion anytime soon!
Editors Showcase – Modern Moms – New York City March 25, 2009
Neha here again! After returning from a long trip from India and then a quick trip to California, we headed out to NYC for the Editors Showcase. It was a great and successful trip!
New York was quite a city – I was very nervous about going back, since I loved it so much, but it was really going at such a speed – I was shocked at how fast I used to be going at.
As for the Editors Showcase – I found the best garment rack on the planet. For anyone that ever needs a garment rack or goes to a trade show and needs a great garment rack – go to Bed Bath and Beyond – and get the commercial Garment rack 59.99. It was amazing.. considering that at Expo West the Target rack fell over a few times, and was a bit of a hazard.
The event was wonderful – we were the only organic cotton children’s clothing line at the event, and people loved our new designs for fall and our cute dresses for Spring. People were excited that our prices were reasonable, that our story was unique, and that we were so young!
One of my favorite meetings was with Polly at O Magazine – she was so excited to hear about our story, and female entrepreneurs in today’s economy. I also met with some great editors from Parents, Time Out NY, Kiwi, Today show and Parenting.com!
I am super excited that we met with so many great editors who were interested in our line, and who we are as a team – and esp. excited about our new denim line! We hope to get quite a few features for April since it is the month for Earth Day!
Here is some further information from Editor Showcase’s Website:
As a brand manager, each day you are faced with the overriding question of how to break through clutter and get the attention of editors, reporters, producers, bloggers, and beyond. And you ponder how, through it all, you will be able to make just the right connection that earns your brand a moment in the spotlight and a seat at the table with your target audience: modern moms.
Editor Showcase brings you and your brand front and center with the influential media that most moms consult before making their purchasing decisions. No phone calls. No pitching. No unsolicited emails. Just you, and more than 100 editors looking to learn more about the products/services that would be of interest to their readers. Better yet, you accomplish in just a few hours of pretty serious networking what would normally take months of legwork and sleepless nights to achieve.

2009 has been full of travel so far! We did a road trip through Colorado and Texas, visiting every boutique and Whole Foods in those states. We went to India, met with our partners and factory there. We developed a new denim line, so we are working with an excellent denim factory now. Once we returned, we did a big organic trade show in CA, and afterwards did a quick southern California road trip, meeting with stores there. The line is being received VERY WELL – and it’s great to see how many new stores are picking us up by the week!
