What we are up to #1

Every couple of months we thought we’d give you a behind the scenes look at what we are up to in the studio. Hope you enjoy!

At the moment we are still producing our Summer 14/15 range which will start delivering very soon so keep an eye out! Our main focus however is putting our Winter 15 collection together, so we thought we would give you a little insight into our design process.

We start off by designing separately which sounds bizarre but our tastes are so similar it would be extremely rare for one to make something the other didn’t like. We pattern-make and toile everything in house. Once we have a decent amount hanging on the rack we have a big try on session, decide on any changes and figure out where to go from there and what the collection is missing. I would say about a third of the collection is draped on a mannequin and the other all done flat on card.

So that’s what we are up to right now. Next is to decide on what is to be made in what fabric and colour and then the real samples can be made. Can’t wait for you to see it!
