Who, What, Where?
February 14th of 2011 wasn’t just for Valentine’s day this year, but for fashion, too-the “Magic” fashion show at the Convention Center in Vegas started from February 14th and lasted until the 16th. Fashion shows are always thought of a glamorous event, mostly for women. Honestly, the only men’s fashion shows are stereotypically more for the brands names than the customers, unless you count celebrities. The Average Joe has no need for a fashion show, right? That’s what Magic is here for
Magic is international fashion; for the broadest spectrum of designs, designers, and forms of fashion-from coats to shoes-on an international, industrial level, think of Magic, because it’s Magic that host buyers as well as sellers from across the world for not just women’s fashion, but men’s and even children’s to boot. This year in Vegas, the fashion show revolves around nine “boutiques” to showcase all of fashion to include accessories as well as apparel: STREET Unlimited, FN PLATFORM, PREMIUM, S.L.A.T.E., POOLTRADESHOW, SOURCING, WWDMAGIC, and of course MENSWEAR.
The Vegas 2011 Magic show is meant for everyone, which is important for men-we men don’t often have a reason, or get a chance to have a reason, to go to a fancy-shmancy fashion show, because, again, it’s often for high end female celebs. The Magic show in Vegas this year is targeting a large spectrum of fashion, and so businesses are even encouraged to come, like textile technology importers and exporters, general garment manufacturers, embroiderers, and businesses revolving around accessories, textile materials, trimmings, and laundries. Don’t forget, the general public-including men-are also targeted, so fellas, enjoy.
Talk is cheap-is the international show in Vegas of 2011 really for men? Sure, and here’s some proof-shoes. In one of the previews given to the public via blogs is a sneak peek into the upcoming shoe collection meant just for men, with brands ranging from Puma, a more Everyman kind of a brand, to Lacoste, a brand for the more accomplished men with just as much extra spending money as an eye for style.
Shoes were actually so highly anticipated as a theme to men’s fashion that the entire first day of the Vegas fashion show was, you guess it-shoes. What the 2011 Vegas Magic fashion show proved was two major things-sneaker hybrids are only gaining momentum and are here to stay, and boots are the biggest thing since the sneaker itself.
