Thirty two. That is the number of pieces that are in the Fall line. DONE! The remainder of the fabrics came in Friday, another 12 bolts. Finished the last of the samples today. And if I do say so myself, it is one rockin collection! I would wear it.
Do you like the new play list? I was in a rock mood. I always listen to music when I work, especially when I am designing. Helps the creative juices. Secondhand Serenade has to be my favorite group right now. The whole cd is awesome!
You know, I have heard a lot of the word knock off lately being used to describe anyone who makes a knot dress or apron skirt. I personally find it incredibly insulting, and quite ignorant. I am sure, I will get some hate mail from this post, but it's ok. I will put on my big girl panties and can take it. ;) Allow me to share with you the process of creating a piece. It takes hours of time, choosing fabrics, plotting out the design, putting the fabrics together, then stitching it up. It also takes time to develop the patterns and grade them for size. So if people want to call that process, knocking something off, ok, then, fine. Who am I to say, I only have spent 70 hours over the past week finishing up my line. In fashion, everyone is inspired by someone or something.
Alrighty then...enough ranting, on to something sweet! I have to share three beautiful little girls with you. First up, little Miss Havalah. This precious five year old is three years past a liver transplant. And her mom, Kristen, is one of my amazing Trunk Keepers, and an all around great woman! Please, please, support organ donation! I can't say that enough. Think of the gift you are giving, life. There is nothing more beautiful and sacred.
