This time it’s New York’s turn to host Playtime, the show kicks off this Sunday 5th and runs until Tuesday 7th August. Pirouette will be there to cover Playtime NY #17 and look for our final Pirouette One to Watch Award Winners for the SS19 season. 180 brands will be exhibiting this edition with 30% first time exhibitors. We’re looking forward to seeing stylist Mariah Walker’s interpretation of the trend spaces and Earnshaw’s panel on Tuesday morning 8am. The bright and early start means brands will be able to attend this valuable topic ‘Be the Buyer’.
