This year, in adittion with our usual Spanish brands, which once again have surprised us with spectacular designs that will be showing in the coming weeks, we have incorporated a more urban brand and with an alternative style that makes us very excited to present.

It’s called Popelín and fits perfectly with a fashion trend to the rise we’ve seen that is succeeding in many areas of the country. In our humble opinion has a great opportunity thanks to the perfect combination of comfort, design and high end pieces.

Actually, it is a brand that already has several followers in the United States; in fact, not so much time ago there was a nice reference in the blog Eurochicbebé.

As you already have the samples that Popelín sent to us from Spain, you don’t need much more detail but I would like to share with our followers some pics so that they become a small idea of ​​the wonder I’m talking about and Sisters B2B is very proud to include among its represented brands.

080 Barcelona Fashion FW 16/17

Hello sister,

Two days ago, I had the chance to attend 080 Barcelona Fashion and see how much it is growing, not only the event itself but also the level of the brands displaying their new collections there.

080-bcn-fashion2

This year, the Fashion show was held at the Casa Llotja de Mar, a landmark in Barcelona that has flawlessly integrated the different display areas: 080 Fashion Market, the Catwalk area, and, of course, the stunning room where the Catalan Cluster Fashion (Modacc) arranged a spectacular showroom for the brands.

This is the perfect place for showing the collections of next Fall and Winter 2016 to buyers and international agents in order to stimulate trade relationships between brands and partners.

But we cannot forget to talk about Barcelona Fashion Summit. As they explained in their website, this is the main meeting point for professionals in the fashion business in Spain, a forum that gathers every year the leading executives of the sector around a program of conferences and round tables with first-level industry speakers.

After visiting these places and enjoying every little space displaying the new collections, I attended Aldomartins brand fashion show since I was really eager to see what they were offering for next season. This is a brand that I particularly love.

You can see below a short video I recorded on the Aldomartins parade. I have also attached some beautiful pics provided by the organization.

For the first time in the last few months, after I checked the children’s fashion world, I decided to venture into the adults’ one, which I found very interesting to explore.

However, I was planning on going back to children’s for yesterday’s presentation of Boboli and Cóndor Bcn’s new collections for FW16 but unfortunately I couldn’t attend. If you check Blogmodabebé and Agus Albiol Fothographer you will find awesome parade pics.

Children’s Fashion from Spain at FIMI

Hello sister,

A few days ago I was in Madrid visiting the 82 Edition of FIMI The Universe for Children and I came back home with many exciting news for next season Fall and Winter 2016-2017!

In my opinion, there is a trend towards simplification of the creations along the lines of adults’ fashion using a large range of different fabrics in sober colors as blacks and grays but with a touch of many others including the pantone color of the year: the rose quartz.

I also had the opportunity to visit all the brands we loved and we are lucky to work with and discovered a few others that made a great impression to me not only because their beautiful designs but also because the passion and good vibe they show with their work. I have no doubt that they are in the right path.

Barcarola Moda Infantil presented and elegant and sophisticated new Fall and Winter collection with a few every day matching pieces making modern and fresh whole outfits.

J.V. José Varón presentation for their new collection was inspired by “The Little Prince”. Within the story ambience they introduced beautiful and comfortables pieces with a modern twist and like every season with exclusives fabrics and patterns.

I stopped by to see our client Creaciones Alves next Fall and Winter collection. Their designs are always very warm and timeless, not only with their beautiful Fall and Winter collection but also with a Ceremony one with many delicates items for any Special Occasion. Furthermore, their new layette collection is to die for.

I visited the stand of León Shoes and their new Fall and Winter collection comes full of classic leather handmade children’s shoes for everyday or any special occasion always with the amazing quality all the moms we are looking for.

I couldn’t left without visiting the booth of our client Belán Moda Infantil and the model Gabrielle Princess of Monaco wore in her first birthday. It really is a gorgeous piece and I understand how all the stores now want to have one next season. Every time I visit them I fall in love over again with their Christening Gowns and smocked dresses, such delicates pieces all handmade in Spain.

An last but not least, what an incredible fashion show! It was really beautiful organized and all the brands made a magnificent job showing us with what is coming for next season.  I was impress with the professionalism of the children, they not only did an amazing job but always with a great smile during the whole show.

One of the new brands that I really loved at the runaway was Teté y Martina. They introduced a beautiful and elegant line for many special occasions. A brand to look out for!

Día Mágico by FIMI – First Communion trends

Hello sister,

Few days ago, I was at Día Mágico by FIMI in Madrid watching the last trends for First Communion and I was delighted with the originality and freshness of the new collections showed by the Spanish manufacturers. In spite of being an international trade show event, in my opinion, Spanish firms are excellently positioned in this specialized fashion.

first-communion-fashion

I was impressed by the very modern creations that have incorporated lace, tulle and fine cotton, but I could also see designs with a very cute vintage romantic style. There were also traditional dresses showcasing tucks and organza especially emphasized. Regarding color, the truth is that every year the dresses display less pure white and more ivory tones where details are added in soft pastel colors that blend perfectly.

One more time, Barcarola dazzled with their new collection with impressive design and fabric’s quality among other details. The staging conducted by the brand in the show was really beautiful. I posted some images in Instagram and a very cool video that made by the casitademartina.com.

For boys, although it may seems there are few options, I could see that every year the brands expanded and now, thanks to Varones firm, I can recommend the perfect outfit for any special events. Jackets, suits and shirts in a showy colorful and very trendy designs but also retaining classic lines in many of his creations.

I was surprised that some firms not only continue standing up for classic leather shoes, but also they incorporate very comfortable shoes, like slippers and espadrilles that gave the formal outfits a more casual twist.

I also had the opportunity to attend the catwalk called “Paseo Mágico”. The exhibition held a fashion show with several firms besides the ones described above, like Paqui Barroso, Flores del Eden, Javilar, Rubio Kids and Bebés Chic.

magical-day-first-communion

The choreography was extraordinary and to see all children modeling in the beautiful gardens made for a really wonderful show.

In short, the celebration of this event in such a very special place as the Royal Tapestry Factory of Madrid has become a benchmark event at international level for all professionals who are interested in new trends in fashion and ceremony communion and the business associated with them.

So now is your turn to spread the word about this wonderful event and all the amazing First Communion and Special ocassion designs that will be available to the American customers who want their children to look their best on their special day.

Spanish fashion at Children’s Club in New York

Hi sister,

I’m very happy because we have been mentioned in an influential Spanish blog regarding our participation in Enk Children’s Club in New York. Thanks a lot to Blogmodabebe!

Please, see below the translation of the post:

Last March in New York, it took place the Children’s Club New York, a trade show that hosted nearly 500 brands of children’s apparel, footwear, accessories, layette items and toys. I heard about this event thanks to Sisters B2B, a company lead in Spain by my friend, entrepreneur Sofía Sotorrío. Sofía helps Spanish brands get access to the American market. She is a great professional and has a beautiful story that I want to hare with you today. Keep reading to discover it and if you are a brand interested in “crossing the pond”.

I met Sofía through her blog “Cuéntame Sister”. A very emotive blog through which Sofía, who lives in Barcelona, and her sister Elena, who lives in Texas, USA, keep in touch with each other and share their experiences of living in such different countries. This blog was the origin of the Sisters B2B company: a business concept that solve the needs of Spanish companies that want to sell in the USA by assigning them an in-country team that knows the local culture and trends and can provide close and immediate attention to the American customers.That is the competitive advantage of Sisters B2B.

Sofía (shown above with Elena), facilitates access to the USA market to children and baby’s apparel brands manufactured in Spain. The company is focused in the state of Texas, where there is a big hispanic population that knows and appreciates our fashion. Sisters B2B is the sales representative in the United States of companies like Barcarola, JV José Varon and León Shoes, which are shown in the attached pictures. They can help Spanish brands by putting them in contact with American buyers or distributors and negotiating the most favorable terms due to their expertise in the local market.

In addition, Sisters B2B assists their clients in the planning, shipping and tracking of purchase orders from origin to final destination. They analyze the business risks of each transaction and suggest the funding options that better suit each situation. They also offer a complementary network of support services in customs clearance, transportation, logistics and management to comply with all regulatory requirements both in Spain and in the USA.

Sisters B2B attended Children’s Club in New York with Asepri, the Spanish Association of Children Products. Sofía was the one who provided me with most of the pictures of the show you see here. She also mentioned other brands that are making a big effort to grow abroad despite their relatively small size: Lilo & Co, for example, which I have already covered in this blog, was founded by two female entrepreneurs who make handmade baby garments following the tradition of our grandmothers. Lil & Co visited Playtime New York, another trade fair to consider. In the pictures you can also see other brands made in Spain like Cóndor, Tartaleta, Paz Rodríguez … in Children’s Club.
