“My most exciting find of the show is Nanis, which is an Italian fashion line. My buyers and I are very excited about it. For the most part, capital constraints have kept designers from investing in product development, but Laura Bicego, the designer behind Nanis, has really done a great job with new designs this year, including some sterling silver and gold designs that just blow us away with their elegance.”
