My first customer, as you can see, very happy!
.My first sample, came out very well.
Well, I love design in general, be it fashion or architecture. I have a keen eye for detail and love expressing myself through dressing up and music.
My friends often tell me I've got a good feel for aesthetics and should put that to use.
I thought romantically this could be a good idea but never really looked into it until recently I was presented with an opportunity to add my own designs to good quality garments that are printed and then hand finished in the UK.
After posting some designs to friends on my facebook, support has been greater than expected. Things are moving quite fast. I have just found a place to retail them from in real life, on the ever fashionable Mill Road.
I really need funding to print the first four designs to get them out there and on the rail. I feel this could be a great opportunity.
The jackets themselves are good quality, there is a choice of fabrics from satin to velvet and a waterproof/breathable fabric. Quilted lining option for winter/ summer.
What I'm thinking off is doing a crowdfunding/ kickstarter type thing, so I can launch around the start of November, in time for Xmas.
I have a strong feeling that once people see the garments irl, things could really pick up.
I already have one myself which I ordered as a sample & just today I have sold another design to a customer. A couple more friends have asked to see the two already made with a view to purchase. Hopefully this will lead to more interest.
The money raised will go directly towards the first print of at least one of each.
