Some exciting news

I am so excited about this! My clothing will be at a Gallery in Shibuya this month. The event is called "Tokyo Made Market", and they will be showing clothing, accessories and art that are handmade by crafters/designers in Japan. My clothing will be there, on sale, from Dec 20th to 27th, 2009. If you live around Kanto area, please stop by..I'm planning to be there at least a couple of times during the week.


Here is a map to the gallery, mememachine gallery.
Honestly, I was not expecting to have such an opportunity coming in Japan. For some reasons, I was not at all expecting to be able to do consignment/wholesale deals over here in Japan like I did back in the States... So I'm happy when the person from Tokyo Made contacted me about this.

I'm thinking of creating a mini-collection for this gallery, and started sketching some ideas, which was unheard of before. I usually have something in mind, and start cutting out fabric and see where it leads me. But the bad thing about this method is when I want to replicate the same design, I have to do all the work over again, and I'm started thinking I really should make patterns for certain designs that I want to continue using in the future. This should save a lot of time.. When I'm cutting fabric, I'm excited to see what the result would look like and I tend to rush.

Anyhow, here are some ideas that I'm thinking about this mini collection:
  • Non black in winter - sick of looking at dark colors in winter, no? I'm thinking maybe pale pink or light gray, or very light pastel green, paired with opaque black tights.
  • Round collor, elaborate back detail, cropped sleeves, peterpan collor, A-line, doll like dress, covered buttons...
  • Also, I want to make winter shorts. Shorts, but made of thicker fabric and wearable in winter, with suspenders!
I am terrible with sketching. I wish I could draw technical drawing nicely!

さとみさん♪
絵は、さとみさんのブログ見てinspireされました☆下手だけど、スケッチしてから作り始めると、途中であれ、ってことが少なくて良いですよね。
