I’ve been watching admiringly and jealously as Martha at Uniform Studio produces some stunning spring collections. I admire because of the complexity that is the underpinning of the simplicity of her designs. I am jealous because I want to be designing new things at the moment. I know, I know, I just designed and made a wedding dress from scratch, what more do I want? Well I want to do that all the time. I enjoyed it. Mostly.
However, it is show time, and that means stock time. Mountains of cutting, pinning, sewing, making lots and lots of the same thing. Luckily I have a student working for me at the moment, which is perfect timing, and we are getting a lot of stock made. And once the shows are over, it’s design time. I just received a bundle of organic cotton to make some samples with. I can’t wait to get cutting into this stuff!
Making new stuff, that’s what it’s all about. However, the reality is that I am busy with website updates including revising my green statement. What do you think?
There is also an up to date exhibitions and shows listing now, though that’s also here on the blog, just over on the right, since I tidied this up as well. I’ve been dealing with a few orders, press enquiries, a book proposal negotiation, stockist updates, supplies ordering, book-keeping, press releases, show invites to mailing lists, preparing and running workshops and all that other running-a-business stuff. Roll on the cutting and sewing.
