Which brings me back to me .... As those of you will know from past posts i have been designing and working with a tailor for the last year, what you may not know is that post leaving school i attended fashion college and trained as a designer with pattern cutting and tailoring as skills - this was a long time ago but i did for my early 20's follow this path and then left it behind one way or another and life went a different way but i have always kept up the skills privately.
The last year has honed them, reminded me how things should be done and re-awakened my great love of design. Hence i have invested a small fortune with amazon and re-visited a ton of skills with book after book. The upshot is that this year i have been doing the construction and pattern cutting myself - and although it really hurts my brain - i find i can do it again. It was suggested to me that i start a collection by various persons last year and this and then i arrived at the above mentioned post and everything that was processing for quite some time became a lot more clear and solid, so i decided to to finally start a new business, build a brand and work on a collection - pheww!! I have re-launched the blog to share and soundboard this journey, see the designs working in flesh and photo, thereby adapting and perfecting them and to record my thoughts and visions.
Next post i will be discussing the collection i am working on and the brand i want to build.
And the fact that as a well established business woman i see absolutely no way whatsoever of making a profit - this indeed is my stumbling block - business for love and not money - a whole new concept - who knows?? xxx
And as for Frankie - he will be back with some mr pics next week - bless! xx
Hopefully those pics will be a little brighter - the sun was actually shining ....
