    Hi Fedora Lounge,
    So much to learn from all of you! My name is Elisa, I'm originally from a town near Montappone which is the millinery district in Italy. I started a company called Rossi & Rei with the goal to democratize the white glove experience of commissioning bespoke luxury essentials. We started working with our favorite milliner last year. Her name is Veronica Marucci, she learned age-old millinery techniques in Italy and has opened her atelier in Paris a couple of years ago. We create a Kickstarter for her summer collection, the Veronica and the Marie hats, which can be customized and pre-ordered from Veronica herself.

    To check us out and back Veronica, please visit: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rossi-rei/artisanal-hats-made-in-italy-finished-by-hand-in-p

    Yes! I'm a fan of in-person events. What location do you suggest?

    Stick around here for a while, just to build a reputation and learn the players. Then when you're ready, coordinate a tour with retailers in a few cities, perhaps. Land first in NYC, end up in LA or San Francisco, (or both) or the other way around. There is a LOT of territory in between to map out, and as a marketing person, I say go wherever there's opportunity. I think you would benefit by host retailers to best present and introduce yourself. It's going to take some time, but if it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

    Best of luck!
