Twice a year the apparel industry converges on Las Vegas for the most influential week in the business of fashion. Last week, Magic, Project and Pool tradeshows all ran in Las Vegas with a huge crowd making the scene. Tucker Paisley exhibited for the first time at Pool Tradeshow – www.pooltradeshow.com.
Pool is the original independent tradeshow, established in 2001 for the boutique market and better retailers world-wide. Pool strives to showcase the best emerging designers, featuring new products ranging from women’s and men’s apparel, to shoes and accessories, and including a variety of lifestyle products — from art, to music, to home.
We highly recommend Ragtag Design for your fashion photography needs. Armond at Ragtag flawlessly finishes the masterful photos taken by Chuck at Chuck Goodenough Photography. Chuck and Armond just finished shooting Tucker Paisley’s latest bags for Holiday/Resort and Spring 2008, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. www.ragtagdesign.com, www.chuckgoodenough.com

What do Cher’s elaborate Oscars outfit and the stylish, sophisticated Tucker Paisley Sue-Sue have in common? Both rely on work by Silvia’s Costumes, a Hollywood-based costume shop that digitally prints Tucker Paisley’s Signature Pattern. Silvia’s produces looks for a broad range of clients, from over-the-top get-ups for Dolly Parton and Michael Jackson to understated elegance for Ralph Lauren and Vanessa Williams. And the staff at Silvia’s, many of whom are family, are knowledgeable and friendly. www.silviascostumes.com
Did you ever notice the zipper on your pants, coat, or bag? Chances are it says YKK on the pull, the world’s largest manufacturer of zippers. But more and more items will now say U CAN, a rising zipper brand that is attracting more and more high-end fashion brands. And L.A.’s best supplier of U CAN zippers is Catame, located at 1940 Long Beach Ave., near downtown. The staff at Catame couldn’t be more helpful. And that’s why Tucker Paisley proudly uses Catame’s U CAN zippers on its bags. www.catameinc.com
