Drift stepped into a whole new world when deciding to exhibit at the COAST show in Miami, FL. It was the first official trade show we ever attended, nerves were high and anxiety was through the roof. COAST is a smaller scale trade show, so it was a good place to start off and get a feel for that type of environment. The show had a slower start, but nevertheless Drift On Island achieved success! Selling some fantastic Ready to Wear items to some eager buyers.

After the show, Drift was ready for more; bigger and better. With some advice from fellow COAST show exhibitors, we immediately applied for the TRENDZ show in West Palm Beach, FL. This time we were prepared for anything. Armed with our merchandise and our knowledge of the Drift culture, we were ready to attract more buyers. The TRENDZ show was an even bigger success for Drift On Island! We had buyers from Key West, Ft. Lauderdale, Venice and even the Omni Hotel & Resort at Amelia Island, all interested in the Drift Couture. Each buyer left with orders for numerous Couture pieces and the satisfaction of having a one-of-a-kind piece in their store.

Not only has the success at the tradeshows been a significant accomplishment, but Drift On Island also landed major spreads in two magazines. Ray Kay, an award-winning director and photographer, took a breathtaking photoshoot with our very own Furever Coat. We received a request for the coat for a photoshoot and the rest is history. The Furever Coat will be featured in The Driven Magazine at the end of this month and in Gladys Magazine in July. Drift has also landed features on fashion websites and blogs such as Apparel Search (http://www.blog.apparelsearch.com/2017/03/drift-on-island-fashion.html) and Fashion Maniac(http://fashionmaniac.com/drift-island-exploits-island-inspired-couture/ & http://fashionmaniac.com/one-kind-couture-drift-island/ ).
