Readers Say

It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

Lost fashion show: Oh, to be young and hip!

I don't know much about being hip, but it's fun to watch the young, edgy Orange County crowd have a good time.

Wednesday night I headed to Laguna Beach for the Lost fashion show thanks to an invitation from Lost President Tim Garrett. Lost, a rough-around-the-edges action sports brand in Irvine, was showing its Spring 2008 line and debuting its new juniors swim line, which PacSun is testing in stores now.

Joel Cooper, CEO and part owner of Lost International, hosted the party at his incredible house that looks like a Bali resort. (If you have the June edition of Orange County Home magazine lying around, it's worth looking at the story I wrote about the house. The photos are amazing...Unfortunately, the story's not online or I'd link to it.)

At the party, several drink stations were set up around the gardens and a taco stand cranked out food. A DJ kept the music loud (bet Joel's ritzy Irvine Cove neighbors loved that!) and a runway for models jetted out over the pool. I'm not a professional photographer, but here are some shots.

I ran into Shaheen Sadeghi, owner of The Lab and The Camp shopping centers in Costa Mesa and Sean Smith of the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association. They introduced me to Michael Tomson, a revered figure in the surfing industry. He's South African, a former professional surfer, and he and Joel started Gotcha, a ground breaking brand back in the day. (It was Joel's success with Gotcha that helped him build his amazing house, he told me once).

Industry folks always rave about Michael's creativity and unconventional thinking.

He was open to talking to me, so I plan on calling him soon for an interview. I'll let you know what he has to say.
