Next up in our Spotlight Trade Show is the clothing category. Once again, we've asked brands to tell us about their products that are hitting the market now and they've shown us their best new jackets, crag and casual clothing, running wear and everything in between:
As per the previous thread, feel free to fire across any questions you might have.
More often than not we got a whole load of behind the scenes information on each and every product before/after we started filming; however, in the name of keeping things compact we tried to keep the videos themselves short and to the point (or at least as short and to the point as you can get with an interviewer who rambles on as much as I do...).
