As retailers prepare for a trip to New York for the Fashion Coterie, they say they’re in search of new resources, seasonless pieces, sexy tops and well-priced items that make a statement.
Store: NoNo's Where: El Paso Who: NoNo and Missy Altus, co-owners Hunting For: "At Coterie, lines I am always excited to see include Robert Rodriguez — he hits it right on the money and appeals to a wide range of ages, his styling is sleek and sophisticated while being cutting edge. I adore Nicole Miller and Catherine Malandrino as well. I do an amazing business with these lines," said Missy Altus. "New York tends to show a lot of heavier fabrics, and I really need to watch for the weights and fluidity of the fabrics, being that El Paso has quite a mild climate and is in a desert and mountain range. We are truly in the heart of the Southwest, so we need to keep it light. I am looking for those items that feel luxurious to the touch, and silhouettes that will make the woman feel beautiful, updated and fashion-forward, at the same time maintaining a classic femininity. Silk cashmeres, charmeuse, color and, of course, black; beautiful draping, and fabulous cuts — that's what it's about. It's always a thrill to see what the designers come up with season after season." — Rusty Williamson

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
