The Fashion Studio Move Update!

3 Comments

So if you tried to call us or you made an order during mid-end May then you will know that the Kerry O’Brine Womens Wear studio has been on the move!

We have had a space purpose built for the business and it is very exciting times for us! The space is bigger, which will mean we can push on with a lot more things.  A month later we are still getting organised and moving bits into and around the studio. I’ve moved the book shelves for the second time! It’s not until you start working in somewhere that you find out if things work in the position you put them!

 

Day 1 they had joined and cut lots of wood but this is how the day ended!

Here is the new studio after day 2 – the main frame is up.

Day 2 All the bits were put up and joined together!

Then the cedar cladding went on!

 

Day 3 the sun came out at last and they put the rubber roofing on.

End of day 3 – the roof is on. Just waiting for the doors and windows!

Day 4 – It’s all done! Doors and windows are in.

We moved a lot of the studio equipment in!

Looking down the other end – you can see the window and storage space door!

The storage space is open – yet to be filled!!

The building is clad in beautiful cedar wood – it smells divine and mixed with the smell of the roses growing outside – it’s like having a special fashion house perfume!

Things accumulate over time in a studio- images, paperwork, fabrics and lots of other bits and bobs. I’ve had to be ruthless about what came with us into the new space. We’ve now got more room but I wanted to leave space for things I couldn’t access easily before such as my collection of Vogues.

So in these pictures we have just popped all our stuff in! More organising to be done.

  2. Kerry how fabulous to have progressed to your studio, which i guess you really don’t have to leave home to get to?

    • I just have to pop my shoes on and stroll down the garden – which is lovely at the moment but goodness knows how it’s going to be in the winter…. Like a proper rainy commute!!!
