ROAD TRIP 2015 Part I.

PRAGUE - BERLIN - COPENHAGEN (3.000 km)

We would like you to look behind the scenes of building our retail network through next series of blog posts. Although it is a very difficult  part of our everyday life at ABIDELESS, it's very exciting and we want you to experience it with us. As you know, we want to make our products available to you, people around the world and in order to do so, we need to find the best partners to work with. Naturally, before the trip we researched, googled and contacted lots of retailers but we quickly realised that there is only one way to do this and that is by personal meetings. 

 

Our journey started Monday (November 2nd) morning (way too early) and the plan was as following:

  • deliver one big order in Prague 
  • meet with organiser of Prague Fashion Market
  • quick meeting with friends who just opened new multi label store in downtown of Prague
  • quick meeting in Teplice with e-commerce fashion company
  • check in to our Airbnb in Berlin

Meetings in Prague went great. We even got a tour through the most modern office currently in Prague. Guys from JINEYLEVEL showed us their brand new two storey store full of oversize clothes and sneakers. Our next stop was in Teplice, close to German borders. We have presented ABIDELESS to one of the key buyers, and the negotiation will continue in Prague. We have arrived to Berlin just before 9 PM and checked to our industrial apartment. Went for few drinks afterwards to get ready for next three days of store hustling.

 

Set to go!

In the next part, we will show you the best Berlin coffeeshops and stunning street art spotted on the way to retailers. Stay tuned.
