I waited too long to sign up for Executive Edition
I waited too long to sign up for Executive Edition

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.

It pertains to my business
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.

Skater Jamie Thomas will ride for Insight in synergistic move

Updated 9:45 a.m. with comments from Jamie Thomas on how this arrangement will impact Fallen apparel.

Displaying one of the synergies derived from its alliance with Black Box Distribution, Insight announced that skateboarder Jamie Thomas, founder of Black Box, will ride for Insight.

Insight is mostly known as a surf and fashion brand. Jamie will help develop a capsule collection to be released in early 2010.

In July, Insight USA and Black Box announced a new distribution partnership.

Now that Jamie will be riding for another apparel brand, I asked Black Box how that will impact Fallen, Black Box's footwear brand that also makes apparel.

"Although (I) will personally be wearing and endorsing Insight, Fallen will maintain its focus on footwear and apparel as well as the respective teams that support these products," Jamie told me.

Carlsbad-based Black Box is responsible for the sales and distribution of Insight in the U.S. - essentially backend operations.

The Insight USA team remains in charge of marketing and product and kept their offices in Los Angeles.
