I’m thrilled to announce that I, Erika Hollinshead Ward, am one of the 2016 High Point Market Style Spotters! In April and October I will pull back-the-curtain to give you an insider’s look into one of the largest home fashion markets in the world!
Who are High Point Market Style Spotters?
High Point Market Style Spotters are an elite group of nine industry professionals who are ahead of the curve in home fashion trends. As a style spotter, I will capture images and videos of my favorite products and trends. Each of us brings a unique perspective of design styles and backgrounds. High Point Market Style Spotters are often times celebrity designers, design bloggers, magazine editors, and makers who have a strong social media influence.
This year’s Style Spotters Team will work through both 2016 Markets – April 16 – 20 and October 22 – 26. Market attendees are invited to join us at Spring Market on Tuesday, April 19, at 9:00am for Style Spotters LIVE!, a free event at which a panel of Style Spotters will discuss the top trends and products they found at Market. This event is immediately followed by the Style Spotters Trend Tours, which are led by individual Style Spotters and encompass all corners of Market. These tours are an opportunity for attendees to receive guided tours through two of a Style Spotters’ favorite showrooms.
