As this year comes to a close, I am reflecting on all the blessings we’ve had this year. fibi & clo grew from one rep to almost 40, we had our first annual fibi & clo fest, we gained a lot of new fans and the feedback on the shoes overall has been incredible. We also had the opportunity to go back to China to check on our factories and work on some new development for 2012! We left on Thanksgiving morning and stopped in Tokyo, Japan for a couple of days. We also stopped by Shanghai, which I’d been wanting to see for a long time. They used to call it the Paris of the East and rightfully so, the buildings are stunning and the detailed architecture is pure perfection. It was an exhausting 11-day trip, but I was able to get a lot of work done. I’m hopeful that 2012 will bring much success for our fashion agents and that the new line will bring a lot of excitement for our fans. We’ll have some more new styles and wedges to come and (fingers crossed) they’ll be ready in May! In the meantime, I wish you all a happy holiday season and a happy new year! Cheers! xoxo, analiza.
