Here comes my post about this cool event we had in Barcelona a few days ago hosted at the Jaime Beriestain Concept Store with Meet The Blogger. It’s been nice to have a mix of local and European bloggers seeing familiar faces again and meet new bloggers. We kicked off the morning with a Trend Talk in the showroom where I introduced four trends for AW 2016/17. These were the exact same trends I presented in London a few weeks ago. You can look up the first one here, and I will publish the second on Wednesday, both were the most liked during the event.
This is a photo I took earlier this year but it gives you an idea of how the shop looks like. The concept store of interior designer Jaime Beriestain encompasses three areas: the café and restaurant, showroom and shop.
I had decided already earlier this year at The Hive when speaking I would not photograph (with a few exceptions during the moodboarding session) but post those images who fellow bloggers were taking with their kind permission, being able to fully concentrate on my presentation. Igor and Thea did a wonderful job here! Thank you so much, friends!
That is one of the mood boards I presented in London with the topic SCANNED! whereas the keynote I gave in Barcelona was projected on a screen and much more detailed with an exact description of keywords, material, colors, a beautiful imagery and quite some text. The light was pretty dark in there but you can get here an impression of how it looked like.
That was a fun moment with Igor discussing his favorite trend WONDERLAND in detail again. Actually there was a general agreement of the audience on this mood, it seemed to be the winner that morning.
After the trend conference, we worked all together on a giant mood board. I had previously asked all participants to bring with them a few images of what currently inspires them or they’d believe is going to be a trend.
I have loved the experience. Imagine 25 people with different backgrounds and interests from different countries bringing al together their ideas on a white brick wall… As a result we had the green trend popping up, handmade and artisan images, black and white, moody pics and some eclectic style too. We seemed to be quite on trend!
Brunch was delicious, and time was flying by after handing out a nice goodie bag with product from Jaime Beriestain, VTWonen, VeoVeoMagazine and Kukshome (thank you all!) it was already time to say good-bye.
I hope everybody had such a good time as I had and we will do another get together soon! It was an amazing group of fellow bloggers and wonderful friends! Thank so much to everybody for coming and Meet The Blogger for making it possible! xx
