Style Spotting at High Point Market

High Point Market Fall 2012

Four of my finds from the Fall 2012 Market
I'm enjoying being an official "Style Spotter" at High Point this week, part of a group of bloggers, editors and designers who scour the market for great pieces and trends. Armed with a stack of "Style Spotter" cards, my iPhone and some (reasonably) sensible (but still cute!) shoes, I'm hitting the showrooms and booths to gather my finds on a specially created Pinterest board...Cheminne Taylor-Smith, VP of Marketing at High Point, helps to put together the Style Spotting crew. Her instructions to us were simple - get out there and find between 15 and 20 great things from the showrooms, record each with a quick pic, give the showroom a card to mark the "spotted" item and then pin your photo of it to the Pinterest board.

With 9 of us pinning, a nice overview of the offerings at the Market starts to emerge - a sort of design-lovers guide to the show. It's really interesting to see a diverse group of people, with different personal styles, showing off their favorites together, creating a varied, eclectic selection of items, trends and style stories that are all worth a longer look.

Here is a link to my Fall 2012 Style Spotters board:
