I've been thinking a lot about my own designs as I watch a lot of the NYFW shows, and think that I want to branch out a little bit structurally. Since I have zero formal training when it comes to sewing (everything I do when it comes to fashion is self-taught. Pattern making, sketching, production) and I've been thinking about signing up for some classes to improve those skills. I really want to get my clothes up on etsy ASAP, which is why mid-winter break is going to be crucial. I want to take some classes and learn to make pants. From what I've read, that's one of the most difficult garments to produce to fit well, and feel like I am up to the challenge and ready to branch out and get better as a designer. Thank you, NYFW, for restoring my inspiration and motivation for 20 time!! I can't wait to get to work.
ALSO SOME EXCITING NEWS: a new high-quality fabric store is moving in about three blocks from my house! I'm so excited, hopefully that will be a good opportunity to find nice textiles for my collection.
