Sounding Off
Vendors and buyers weigh in on the Micam show.

Edna Galo, owner, Galo Shoes in New York
On Milan: “I like to shop to look at some of the Italian trends. I like to look at the windows of Armani, Louis Vuitton, Tod’s and Prada. Even though we have those stores here, it’s good to look at them in Milan for merchandising ideas.”

David Markowitz, president, Davids/Markio Design in Toronto
Buying strategy: “We’re looking for aspirational luxury looks. The over-the-knee boot has been dominant, so we’re looking for the European translation of that to try to relay it to our market.”

Bettye Muller, designer
Expectations: “The Japanese market looks like it’s coming on strong. I’m really positive about the international buyers that are coming through.”

Jon Harris, owner, Gregory’s Shoes in Dallas
Buying strategy: “The Italians have been at the forefront of fashion, so we’re really looking for a wide range of everything. The vendors we have now are great, but we’re definitely looking for some new ones.”
