Christmas is over and I have begun 2016 working on some new designs.
My design process begins with a few ideas being sketched with notes added of inspiration along side. I then begin patterns and try out my designs . I will alter my design sometimes as I’m working if I feel for example hemline should be shorter than my original sketch.
This week I have been working on The Lilody wrap dress,Named after my nieces Lila and Elody . As always vintage inspired the dress has large wrap around sash tie ,feature sleeves and gathered skirt. It still needs a few alterations before I’m completely happy with it but its not far from complete.
It will then be available to order from my website and my ETSY store . In a range of Vintage fabrics and new fabrics designed by myself and exclusive to C&V collections.
Expect Lots more to come from C&V Boutique this year.New Designs ,focusing on our own label CoCo & VeVe.
Early in December I met Elene Marsden at The Little Vintage Fair Based in Waterloo.
Elene runs a YouTube channel called Pre-loved Chica. The channel focuses on vintage clothing ,charity shop finds and anyone out there who has a passion for creativity and design.
I agreed to do a web chat with Elene for her channel . Being in front of the camera is not something I usually do. However I decided to go for it.
We had a brief chat before going Live on air . I was nervous , but Elene’s questions really gave me direction and as the interview went along I began to relax and focus. Elene asked about my favourite outfits,where I sourced my fabrics and where I see myself in 12 months time. The latter question really gave me food for thought as I had not really sat down took a breath and thought about how the next 12 months would progress. After we had finished the interview I took some time to focus on where was I going ? How do I want to move forward with the next year. I have to say I’m really excited to see How C&V progresses in 2016 .Elene’s questions really helped me focus on where I’m going.
