At Wolf & Badger, we want to give brands the opportunity to personally showcase and sell their collections at a store of their choice. In-store events allow designers to extend the reach of their brand, expand their customer base, and gain feedback! This is also an exciting way of engaging with guests invited directly by the brands, such as trade buyers, press contacts, existing loyal customers, bloggers and influencers.
