WHAAAA CAN FINALLY ANNOUNCE THAT THE NEXT LOT OF GARMENTS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE ON ASOS FROM MONDAY PM!!!!!! This season we have taken a different approach and have made a few one offs, a lot more duplicate garments so we are prepared for all your orders and will hopefully not be disappointing anyone as there will be enough dresses / jackets to go around. We have also introduced some Tie dye tshirts and beanies and little accessories which will be a little lower in cost and therefor everyone can have a piece of the label!!! So excited to get the full stock list uploaded the images are phenomenal!!!! Remember to keep an eye on the FACEBOOK page all day Monday and listen out for when the stock is uploaded and ready for you to BUY BUY BUY!
Today we had screen print Saturday in the studio! It has been a while since I have properly screen printed so Jo gave me a lovely little refresher course before I got stuck in. Right now we are making a completely one off AMAAAAZING outfit for an INSANE client! All has to be kept fairly under wraps at the moment but It is so exciting. Will post little tiny garment previews once The production process is well underway. Excuse the mess of the GHETTO STUDIO we still haven't properly cleaned up after the ASOS shoot. Here's a little glimpse of some of the sample fabric's we have have been printing.....

Yesterday we were busy shooting our second set of stock ready for ASOS. The last week has been slightly insane preparing the stock as all of you who follow the brand will know every garment is hand made in the studio! Currently all garments have been produced by myself with the occasional help of interns and other kind people popping in and out, so from this week we are looking to recruit a more permanent team of People working within the studio. Abigail Donaldson joined the team last week she is now taking on the roll of a general assistant helping us with almost every aspect of the brand however her main roll is answering emails and garment enquires. Abigail will now be handling all enquiries into the "Borrowing" of garments and will be keeping track with which garments are currently out on loan to shoots and which are being packaged and sent to Stylists, Events and Editorials. This week has really been all hands on deck in the studio we have had a crazy amount of people passing through the doors helping in various ways: studding, tie dying, shoot preparation, labelling garments, dressing models etc. SO A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THE SHOOTS PREPARATION!!
The actual shoot was PHENOMENAL!!!! We were working with the most AMAZING TEAM <3 Photographer Emma Alexander, MUA & Hair Sandra Cormack & assistant Anna Pillans. and my amazzzzzzzzzing models Sula Powell & Stefania Ottelli Zoletti - Genuinely in love with these gurlls! I cannot emphasise enough what great people they all are to work with. The shoot ran smoothly, we got every shot we were after and I cannot wait to get the final Images back! Its so refreshing working with some new faces and these girls were out of this world a total breath of fresh air and absolutely perfect for representing the label! Here's a few sneaky images from the day .....
