The Studio Diary
At the moment in the studio we are working on a lot of new products. New fabric has been ordered which is very exciting. We made the decision not to go to Premiere Vision this year as we found what we needed in the London Textile Fair. This was the first time I had visited the London Textile Fair and I enjoyed the more relaxed atmosphere and the lack of walls around each company.
When you go to Premiere Vision unless you know the companies it can be tricky to determine if they are the right company for you (even after doing preparation with the descriptions/website beforehand). Until you venture into the enclosed areas, you just don’t know and then it can be a bit uncomfortable when you realise it’s not the right fabrics!!
Not going to Premiere Vision has also saved a bit of money on Paris, although I am going to Paris for a social visit next week! I am looking forward to this and we have been creating a huge list of things we want to do in the four days we are there! I think it will need to be narrowed down a bit.
Back to the studio. So whilst we wait on the new fabric we are making sure all the patterns are ready and toiled. Then we will be working on some limited edition and show pieces!
There has been some talk that the studio will be moving, but not far. It will provide a lot more space and be easier to organise! At the moment the shelves are under the cutting desk, which is a little awkward when you’re scrabbling around on your knees trying to get a specific book!
There is the possibility that another Pop Up Shop will come about soon in central London. We shall see!
Watch this space for more developments.
