interesting comments from 2 CANADIAN DESIGNERS…
from MITCH DARRAGH / KILLIGREW
Outlook: We’ve done the Project trade show in Vegas, and the Bread & Butter show in Berlin. A lot of people loved our stuff but it’s hard to deal with taxes and duties, so the next step is looking for an agent or distributor for importing in Europe.
from SARAH STEVENSON
Outlook: There’s a new level of awareness — the people that I’ve met are conscious of how and where things are made, and that a person designed it, and thought about it. But being in Canada where industry aren’t as easily accessible, we have to be more resourceful and have tenacity. It’s a lot more legwork!
