Accessories the Show

This past August, the Winky Designs team participated in the ATS show held in Las Vegas. It was a show the W.D. New York team had done before but our first here in Vegas. Boy, were we excited!!! We decided if we were gonna do it, we were gonna do it right and really plan it out. We timed the show with the launch of our spectacular (yes, it really is!) F/W ’13 Sweet Dreams Collection and wanted the booth design to reflect the more sophisticated turn Winky Designs was experiencing. Our wonderful intern Shyann and Winky designed the space and we all pitched in to make it a reality.

Tah DAH! It is widely known we had the best booth design…go ahead, ask around!
 
Everything was pretty much DIY which is how we like to roll. The uber-cool and unique brown wall is actually cut up corkboard we layered to give the wall texture and dimension. The “Winky” sign is silver sided foam insulation cut into lettering with a butter knife. Oh the wonders you can do with a butter knife…The other wall featured a real tree branch with select Sweet Dreams watches delicately hanging from fishing wire. Just don’t ask how we got the tree branch. Ok, I’ll give you a hint….*cough dumpster diving cough* Don’t judge. All the cool kids are doing it these days…
Overall, the show was awesome. Our booth got rave reviews, but most importantly, we secured many orders for the collections. Everybody loooooved Sweet Dreams and loved the packaging even more. We couldn’t have asked for a more awesome show to be a part of!! ‘Til next year ATS, peace out!
