About last night. I'm busy finalising patterns for my clients accessories project at the moment. Samples need to be ready by the end of November for photo shoots with production done at the factory by January. The empty glass is indicative of the small amount of prosecco I drank while I worked   ___________________________________ #patterns #patterncutter #patterncutting #accessories #productdeveloper #productdevelopment #thefullworks

Technical drawings are so important to a pattern cutter. They're the starting point for communication between the designer and product developer. I do mine by hand and then scan and tweak in Illustrator. Have a read of my article on how to communicate your design ideas.

It was great to finally meet Jodi @blackneondigital this morning. What an inspiring lady. Bec @topmaststudio took some pics of me and I can't wait to record my very first podcast next week.

Spotted this during my weekend reading of The Telegraph Luxury supplement. This silk double coat is my idea of a luxury item. Yes it's expensive of course as it's by @celine but it would last a lifetime and still look contemporary. Two for the price of one as it's reversible. The cut is great as both hems of each coat are stitched together creating a subtle amount of volume. It's my birthday in September does anyone want to treat me??  ___________________________________ #dreamcoat…

So the hardware I designed for my clients has just come back from the factory and they're more than happy. (I'll be adding pics to my insta stories later). My clients chose The Full Works package on the website so take a look and see if I can help you turn your designs into products  #Repost @utelier (@get_repost)  Congratulations to PCD on the launch of their new website. We love the services they provide and value they add to newbies and seasoned businesses.

I spent some time at Clothworkers @vamuseum late last year drooling over vintage garments by Charles James and @lanvinofficial. It got me thinking about the importance and use of fashion archives when new designers take over at renowned fashion houses. Have a read of my article on the subject that I wrote for @utelier.

It wasn't so long ago that editors refused to put black models on the covers of magazines as they theorised that the copies wouldn't sell. That was proved wrong when Vogue Italia issued the iconic all black issue in 2008 and which sold out in 72 hours. Evidently it was pretty popular and while it proved the editors wrong not much changed. I had forgotten about that until I tried to buy a copy of British vogue today in East Dulwich where I live. I should have known it would be a sell out…
