I’m so excited! Last week I mentioned that I was expecting new samples to come in any day. Well they arrived on Monday! These are samples of 2 of our best selling styles from previous seasons. I had the manufacturer make a few changes to see how well they could follow my instructions, sketches & notes. The samples allow me to get a better feel for the quality of their work and sourcing capabilities before I commit to working with them. I think they look fab!! What do you think? The leather is really soft and supple and the construction is sound and clean. I also like the changes made to the styles!! Don’t look now, but these revamped styles may just have to be reworked into the new line!!! Next up, new samples for the 2012-2013 Season . . . I. Can. Not. Wait. #itsgettingcloser
I hope today is bringing you all you have hoped for. ♥
Happy Wednesday guys! We’ve made it to the middle of the week. Today is a wonderfully gray day, complete with rain drops and puddles. I love it! More inspiration to add to my arsenal. I am enjoying my morning cup of coffee while I work. It’s the little things that bring me joy (at least today anyway LOL!) I hope you are all enjoying your Wednesday, wherever you are! xo
Style Republic recently featured a behind the scenes tour of the making of the classic Chanel Flap Bag. As a lover of the design process, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show some of the images of what goes into the construction of this bag.
