Pazuki Trunk Show at Goldie HP France Japan October 29 2014, 0 Comments
As you all will know Pazuki has just had its first Trunk Show with Goldie HP France in Japan! Starting in Tokyo and then moving to Osaka.
On display we had a collection of imagery and press from over the past 30 years of Pazuki (ranging from magazine articles to studio photographs).
Alongside this we had a selection of archive pieces showcasing the variety of Pazuki work.
I wasn’t alone on this adventure but also joined by Suzy who worked with me for 11 years (until 1994).
At the shows customers were able to order from limited edition patchwork pieces –with the possibility of choosing the shape and the colour of the item and have it finished off with their name printed on the label.
Also the customers were able to purchase one-off pieces which had been created with vintage fabrics and trims ...
Pazuki cardigans and clothing.
All the staff and customers came wearing their favourite Pazuki items.
This lady had bought 40 Pazuki pieces in the last 6 years.
- Let us know how many Pazuki pieces you have in your wardrobe.
I really liked how the staff all had their individual style of dressing and were so friendly and helpful to the customers, like they were old friends. Customer service is clearly key at Goldie HP France.
Suzy and I had a wonderful time meeting everyone.
Goldie HP France visit Pazuki HQ, London March 05 2014, 0 Comments
February is always a busy month at Pazuki... Meetings, deliveries of new SS stock (which have to be checked, packed and sent out to stockists), AW samples, last minute finishing touches to patchwork scarves... The list really does go on! One of our February meetings was with Goldie - HP France from Japan. We look forward to their visit each season, sharing the patchwork scarves we design and make (in our London studio) just for them - although a few do sneak on to our website. Our meeting could not have started better as we had the addition of a lovely homemade cake supplied by one of the Pazuki girls - Ximena. Who doesn't like to start the day with tea and cake? :)

After HP France had viewed our new collection of Patchwork scarves and put in their requests, we showed them the rest of our AW14 collection of printed scarves and cardigans.

They then rummaged excitedly through our rail, touching and trying on each scarf to make sure they made the right choices for their store - we certainly think they did :)

We then discussed the possibility of something very exciting both for HP France and Pazuki; a small exhibition of Pazuki patchworks... This is just an idea in the making so watch this space for more updates on what's to come!
