It was the 28th of January. A beautiful sunny morning, despite the chilly winter moisture, it promised a beautiful day under the Athenian sun would follow.
Not that we would get much sun inside the Metropolitan Expo trade center... Yes, it was one day before the beginning of the Athens Fashion Trade Show 2016, probably the most important fashion event in the country. And that day, those 14 hrs, we were going to setup everything for the coming 4 days of visitors. We knew a lot of work lay ahead of us but were all SUPER EXCITED!!! This was the first trade show for the White, Santorini and our small but capable team was up for it!
Ok, found us on the board. Top right corner.
Long walk inside the Expo center but here we are: Hall 2!
So, this small space is where we're going to spend the next 5 days of our lives... Let's get to work!
Ariadne, Sofia, Efi, Maria and Stella at work. So much to do, so little time! Always time to pose for the camera though!
By the end of the day some of us have had too much coffee...
But the work is finally done and everything seems to be in place.
Jan 29... The doors are about to open! The girls rejoicing at their passes...?
And so it begun. The next 4 days were full of busy, tiring, funny, rewarding moments. Our first trade show went even better than we had expected! We were so happy our efforts and excitement paid off. We participated in the catwalk event but that, as they say, is another story :)
It was great, see you next year Athens Fashion Trade Show!
