It’s been a while since my last post. I think I fell right back into my old ways; after opening a collection, I always wanted some time off mentally. So, I’ve let my fashion experience settle for a while and now I’m ready to go back at it.
I’ll fill you in as to what’s been happening the past couple of weeks. It became painfully aware that we will need a showroom in New York to work with. I thought that I would be able to handle orders that we took from the Coterie, but I’ve come to realize that I need the clothing in New York hanging on someone’s rack so that we keep up the exposure. To that end, we are actively looking for a multi-line showroom in the city. I’ll keep you posted.
Production is moving along on the first line. All the fabrics have been ordered and we’re starting to finalize patterns.
I repeated the fashion show for our local hospital here in Kingston last Friday night—I’m a member of the board and it was a fundraiser to benefit the hospital. I was pleased and honored to do it. It was a lot of fun to show the clothing to non fashion professionals. The fashion press is great but they see so many shows that I certainly see how they may get a bit tired or jaded in the process. The hospital audience loved the show, and more importantly, they seemed to love the clothes—it was great to show them to appreciative, “real” people.
That’s my blog for now—more later!
