About Pool Tradeshow: POOL is a minimal rail trade show designed for the directional boutique market. POOL showcases many new designers each season and features a range of lifestyle products including apparel, shoes, books, home, art and music. POOL carefully curates each show, balancing fresh talent with established brands. Each line participating at POOL is pre-screened to allow buyers more time to place orders. POOL provides racks, tables, chairs and signage to all vendors. Lounge areas are set up throughout the hall for your convenience. This format reduces the set-up and registration fees by nearly 1/3 the cost of other trade shows. POOL makes it easier for brands to get the much-needed visibility they deserve at the same time reducing headaches normally expected from other shows. POOL has established a pricing schedule that accommodates the needs of any designer. Exhibitors simply build their own show, mixing & matching rails and tables to suit their needs. New designers have the freedom to participate by rail and grow with their needs while established brands have the option of privacy. Guest DJs spin daily, accompanied by art installations and a full bar for your pleasure. History of POOL,: In 2000, Ronda Walker of the Republica Showroom in LA conceived an idea to pool like minded designers together in an intimate and friendly setting as an alternative to the impersonal and misdirected mainstream market trade shows. POOL premiered as a seasonal trade exchange in February 2001, showcasing young and established fashion forward designers and is currently in its 9th season. Source: POOL Website.

About Blue-Platypus: Taking cues only from themselves, the masterminds behind Blue Platypus obviously have many ideas up the sleeves of their already popular line of T-shirts. Inspired by vintage clothing and furniture from the 1920’s through 1960’s, co- owners and designers Heidi and Scooter have just started to make waves in the fashion industry. By launching a website they are sharing their ideas with the public and offering a selection of original wearable art for men and women.

While the name, Blue Platypus is derived from a figment of the designer’s imagination; the designs are nothing but raw, true beings. Now producing most of their own T-shirts to use as a canvas, they utilize a wide variety of decorative techniques, from water base and plastisol screen-printing, to discharge, flocking, studs, rhinestones, appliqué and trim work are also among the interesting details. Almost everything put out for each season is dyed in custom Blue Platypus colors.

Their Fall 2005 line is to include more accessories, outerwear and skirts for women, the Fall 2004 and Spring 2005 selection is available at

Maintaining a high level of quality, customer service and design originality is the core belief of Blue Platypus. Heidi, a graduate of Otis with a degree in Fashion Design, and University of Michigan with a degree in Biology co-owns and designs with Scooter, an aerospace inspector for Northrop Grumman. Blue Platypus is located in Southern California.
