The Pre-Fall ’16 Collection has already taken off with the motto “Let’s Fall in Love ❤️” and, being physically away, my thoughts are with the big passion in my life.
Here, far away, I look at the emails, the pictures, the VB girls, the posts, the messages, the subtitles, the albums, the newsletters, the stores, the team… and my face lights up with the soul of a mother hen admiring all that Vintage Bazaar has already done. And all that it still wants to do.
And the motto for the launch of yet another collection was not chosen by chance, for this decade that we’re almost completing (with so many surprises still to come, my God!) appears to be mesmerizing us and the energy and love that we release keeps growing.
We use the word LOVE (worklovers, made with love, from Portugal with love, with love…) because this is always the feeling on which we base our work.
It is this absolute truth that we always include in our project.
This includes quarterly trips, fortnightly collections, matching shootings, productions and respective styling, thousands of references, 3 brand stores, hundreds of retail customers, thousands of fans of the brand.
The pace is often intense but it is with this intensity that we learn to excel and make magic.
The purpose of this state of play is not to gloat but rather to face all that lies ahead with even more respect for the progress made and responsibility for the journey ahead.
Yes… we have long ceased to be a project, we are a brand, we are Vintage Bazaar!
And my face lights up again.
Ideas are only worth something if we know how to carry them out and I take huge pride in being surrounded by a creative team that allows me to carry out all my ideas:
