For a couple of months in the fall and again in the spring, we show you the styles that will be produced in the coming months for the next season. In this case, for Spring 2018.
Store buyers are busy locking in how many of each they want for their stores. In some cases all are reserved before we even get to the season.
This is your chance to preorder individual items that you want coming to you next spring.
They're reserved for you in case that item is one of those that sells out quickly. Either because it's really popular or because there isn't much fabric to use for that one.
