“Although it felt like the foot fall was down the quality of visitors to the stand was very encouraging. We certainly noticed more owners, Chief Stewardesses and third party suppliers coming to see us,” commented Ruth Douglas, General Manager at Heirlooms.
“Visitors absolutely loved the new Jacquard designs and textures of our showcase lines including sensational laces, eye catching crystals and metallic embroideries, as well as the fabulous new children’s range which attracted considerable praise”, added Ruth.
Heirlooms were also honoured by displaying a stunning glass sculpture by the renowned glass artist Jan Frydrych. The sculpture was on loan by Crystal Caviar and attracted a great deal of interest from potential buyers.
