One of the most exciting things about being in business is the chance meeting with another creative and what results from those chance meetings if you are #brave enough to follow up a dynamic discussion.
After receiving the holy grail of invitations in the form of the CBA Women in Focus Annual conference in Port Douglas recently, I met a fellow business woman Noa Ries of Vie Active Wear.
You see we share a love of all things leopard print and fitness and after a very fun discussion one night about what we both do and how much we love what we do, we both went back to our respective lives and got on with our own businesses.
And that is where it could have ended, except my mind had started bubbling away about how to engrave leopard print into sterling silver.
OK, I admit it, I had a girl crush and I wanted to impress the cool girl from Bondi.
It turns out Noa had been checking out Uberkate and thinking about a spot we could inhabit in her soon to be opened Vie Active Wear Store in LA…yes LAS ANGELES! Venice Beach to be exact.
So I put together a range and met up with Noa and her business partner Hubby Bryan and we threw around some ideas of how to create a Collab of designs that would work for the fitness industry and Noa’s clientele.
This is what we came up with…
Then the celebrity list for gifting arrived. *GASP*
Yes ALL of these fabulous women now own Vie Active Wear and Uberkate jewellery.
So if you find yourself in LA head down to 1218 Abbot-Kinney Blvd, Venice, 90291, www.vieactivewear.com and pop in and give our Aussie brands a big hello.
And don’t forget to always always follow up on a dynamic discussion…. You just never know where it might lead.
