Best of the West in Design, Audrey Woollen

Here Come the Best of the West...


January 2018 market is on the horizon, and with it comes a brand-new collection of trend-defining designers that represent the very “best of the West,” a group which includes Los Angeles-based style maven and shop owner Audrey Woollen. Audrey, a native East Coaster working in the NYC fashion industry, met Joshua, a native West Coaster working in the LA entertainment industry. Sharing a passion for style and design, the couple opened Urbanic Paper Boutique in 2006. The shop has become a hub of inspiration in Los Angeles and is frequented by designers, bloggers, stylists, celebrities and paper lovers of all kinds. Las Vegas Market is thrilled to welcome Audrey as part of January’s “Best of the West” panel discussion! Read on for a sneak peek at what inspires Audrey’s signature West Coast style, her “must see” trends for next season, showroom faves and product picks at Las Vegas Market, and more. Will you be planning a trip to market in January? Meet Audrey in person and hear more from her and the rest of our Best of the West creatives on our REstyleSOURCE Best of the West design panel!

“Make sure to walk the show floor first to navigate and digest it all, this will give you a good idea of what you want to achieve. Bring along a three-ring notebook to put show orders in that is divided by delivery month, to evenly space out shipments. Finally, drink lots of water throughout the day!”
