It's been a crazy couple of weeks, let me tell you! I'm still recovering! Last weekend I debuted my first collection at Dot to Dot London Kids Trade Show! It was amazing! The experience in itself was great. I meant so many amazing brands, press and shops! The feedback I got was terrific, very positive experience overall.
You never going into a show whether people will understand your vision or buy into it. Some buyers are skeptical of new brands, fair enough. You basically put your heart on a platter and hope someone will love it! I think overall I did ok!
There are some people I want to thank for making girlstalktoboys happen. If it weren't for them I wouldn't have a lookbook to show my designs, a video to showcase how beautifully the kids wear them, a website to go to see my designs. All these things play a very important part in creating a brand!
My photographer Clare Walsh from Clare Walsh Photography is amazing! She was so excited to photograph the collection. And you could tell because she did a phenomenal job! I absolutely loved working with her and I can't wait to work with her again! Please do book her, she's great!
Vanessa Valentine from Vanessa Valentine Photography helped me photograph my laydowns, which is such a mind numbing thing to do and she assisted Clare at the photoshoot. She was so wonderful and helped me get Clare to shoot my collection!!!! Thank you Vanessa for your support! Vanessa does amazing family and maternity portraits, please check her out!
Matt Maude from Left Eye Blind! He is a saint. He helped a friend out when he was swapped with a documentary he has been working on. He took the time out of his very busy schedule to come a put together a little collection video for me. And let me tell you it's beautiful!!!! I can't thank Matt enough. Please check out his work, he's very good!
Jay Maude from Jay Maude. Jay is a jack of all trades. He use to be a model, is a photographer, a videographer and also builds websites in his spare time! He has beans kind to help me with my website and many other things. Thank you Jay! Check out his work, it's good!
Fiona Wade, my illustrator is amazing. She works with me on my prints as she's an amazing artist. I can doodle but she makes them look pretty. Check out her work here.
There are so many other people to thank, but they are the ones that have really helped me out recently and I just wanted to give them the recognition they deserve! I believe in teamwork and giving people credit where its deserved and they definitely deserve it. So thank you to my extremely talented friends for helping girlstalktoboys come alive! I can't wait to do it all again for SS17!!!!!
