I started doing some consignment in different small stores but I didn't really like it, it was hard to keep track of and because they didn't own the pieces they didn't take as great care of them so when I saw the Bendel's opening I decided to give it a try. It was a pretty crazy experience, I arrived at 7:30am and there was already a line around the block, some people had been there all night. I waited in line for 5 1/2 hours and finally was called in. I pulled out just a few of my pieces and they said, we love it, come in for a trunk show. I did my first show in January right after the holidays and didn't do very well, but my show in April was much more successful and sold a bunch.
