Natori Office: The Showroom

On this blog, we have had the privilege of seeing some aspects of my mother-in-law (Josie Natori)’s home; her (sick and drool-worthy OMG I NEED IT NOW) closet¬† and the (incredible, chic, and original) silver bathroom in herapartment. And now, we have the opportunity to take a sneak-peek look at the Natori Office in NYC (I highlighted my mother in law’s office here — the office within the office). Come take a tour of where the magic at Natori happens! First stop: 18th Floor (come back Friday for more on the 19th Floor).

Once you exit the elevator, you see “Natori” written across the wall. Most impressed = Cruzzie. N A T O R I.

Seriously impressed with his name. And yep, we took a family field trip on the weekend to visit the office.

broken up

The showroom is broken up into 4 different selling areas divided by cloth partitions.  The partitions are removable, which allows for much bigger events like this Fashion Show in September, 2013.

sales meetings

In reality, the beautiful (and huge) showroom space is only fully used during the 4 “market weeks” a year, and for other meetings and special events. During market weeks, buyers from stores come to the showroom to see and shop the collection.

Pretty cool, huh? The 18th floor consists of the showroom, sales, finance, and my mother-in-law’s office. Come back on Friday to see the 19th floor, where everything else happens!
