Recently I had the pleasure of visiting one of the greatest fastener & trim companies in the garment center, TrimLab. Words fail me at where to even begin to describe how wonderful this company is. From their products to the wonderful people who run it, it’s all amazing! I think what I love most about TrimLab, is the history each partner in the company has with the garment center and fashion industry. These guys are the real deal! Those true New Yorkers who know the industry inside and out because it has been passed down to them from generation to generation. All together, the companies at TrimLab have hundreds of years of combined experience.

TrimLab is a hub for all your fastener & trim needs. With a collaboration of several companies under it’s roof, you can find everything from…
  • Zippers/zipper pulls
  • Metal/plastic fasteners for sportswear, lingerie, and swimwear
  • Bra cups and foam shapes
  • Interlinings
  • Specialty threads and elastics
  • Notions

Not to mention excellent customer service along with it! TrimLab, offers the rare convenience of sampling and customizing a wide selection of high quality products in one comfortable, inspiring location. Trust me when I say, you will want to work with them! If you’re a fashion designer or fashion design company, be sure to check them out for all your fastener and trim needs in the city! When I asked the guys what is one thing they would love for people to know about them, the said “Experience is alive and well at TrimLab!” It’s true!

This past weekend, my team from work decided to head upstate with our families to Blaze to get into the Halloween spirit. The pumpkins were amazing and the home made apple cider donuts were divine! It’s quite the presentation, really gets you in the Halloween spirit! While their pumpkins were impressive, I still like ours that we made…

Akiko Hair & Nail

October 15, 2013

Tucked away in The Market here in NYC, is an adorable nail art place called Akiko Hair & Nail. Last weekend I had the pleasure of getting my nails done at Akiko and loved it! Akiko is unique because they don’t just offer your everyday manicure, but beautiful nail art. I couldn’t go to crazy for work and such, so I kept it more simple with a gold stripe. But the work they can do is amazing! I really love how my nails turned out….
