We have recovered from the studio and location photo shoots in September. It was a steep learning curve but we did it and all in all, for a first time we think it went rather well. As you may have seen from our FB and Instagram posts, we had amazing models and similarly amazing weather for our location shoot. In fact, it was around 22 degrees and brilliant sunshine. Just what you need when shooting Autumn/Winter lifestyle images :-)
October arrived in a flurry of far more Autumnal weather, the team are slowly but surely breaking out the Winter jumpers and transitioning onto our Autumn/Winter colour collection. We do want to make a little apology at this stage, we knew Mustard may well be a popular colour but we felt it may be our Winter "marmite" colour .... you either love it or hate it! Well, it appears everyone rather loves it! So, we do apologise for selling out of Mustard in some styles before the next container of new stock arrives this Friday. We simply underestimated the love you would all have for it!
As ever, life at Mia Tui is never dull. Charlotte made the decision in September to extend our premises and so we have now moved into the unit next to our existing one and have almost finished getting this organised. We will have a larger photographic studio where we can always have our backdrops and professional lights set up which will make everything so much easier for us. Not only that but we have a dedicated space for our Facebook and Instagram Lives! We currently have to do a bit of furniture moving to set up for a live so having a separate space that is always ready means we are going to be able to do more lives as we know they help you get the feel of our bags and for the business itself.
You may have seen our Facebook Live feed earlier this week, with a rather exciting piece of news that we will be opening the new unit as a shop! We receive many messages asking where we are based and whether we are open for visits from the general public. We do currently see customers in our existing unit during the working week, but hours are limited and weekdays are difficult for many of you to come and visit us. So with this in mind, October so far, has been all about getting the shop fitted out, ready for its official launch which will be on the evening of Friday 9th November from 6pm until 9pm. Come and have a glass of bubbly with us to celebrate the launch. The Mia Tui Boutique will then open at weekends between the hours of 11am until 4pm as well as the usual weekdays of 10am until 4pm.
The shop is now ready and unofficially open, and we had our very first customer this morning. Jennifer very kindly posed for a picture with Sarah whilst she was making her choice of bag.
As you can see from our pictures, our complete collection is on display. Giving you the opportunity to try bags for size and colour and get a feel for the quality of our products. We do hope you can make it to our premises in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire to meet us and have a look around. The shop address for Sat Navs is Unit 72/73 I Centre, Interchange Business Park, Howard Way, Newport Pagnell, Bucks, MK16 9PY.
We look forward to seeing you!
