Starting Monday (6.6.16) morning, I photographed my clothing in different ways, starting on the hanger first. Bonus! My clothing has hanger appeal! CHECK! I went to some crazy extremes to have every item photographed on that day so I could make effective sell sheets. Sell sheets are what every designer or producer of prototypes creates to get their items sold to stores. There's so much to the process of making sell sheets so I won't bore you with the details. Just in the last seven days though, I conquered the most difficult aspect which was the photography. I took up to 20 years of photography, and each photo turned out pretty good.
Also on Wednesday, if you saw on my Snapchat, I shared some paintings my partner in crime did. I'm such a fan of his art (not because I have to be) but because I love his painting style and he has a knack for art just like me. His two paintings, I even posted to Instagram because they had to be shared! I posted I'd be doing something awesome with the paintings and what I'll be doing is transforming them into wearable, original prints and chic outfits.
Also on Wednesday, I pulled out every single one of my dresses and coats, did touch ups to each item and prepped for my product photo shoot.
On Friday, I sat in front of the computer all day working on this white background technique on Photoshop and professionalized each image. The photos you see above are essential for a portfolio of polished prototypes. This entire week, though I felt physically horrible and as though I had been hit by a bus (seasonal allergies, anyone else got'em bad?) Despite that, this entire week was a highlight for me just about. Now, I've kicked my work into high gear and have been inspired to make a bunch of awesome convertible coats. Think about this: from coat to dress, from dress to coat. Like how that sounds? Me too.
When you do an entire product review of every single item you've produced, you see what you need to do more of or what's not working. Well, coats, they always are a hit. So guys, if you loved my coats, get ready because they are coming back with unique design concepts you've never seen before and will love! Also, hey, NO size restrictions too. Sound good? I design from size 0 to, well, up. If you love what you are reading and are new to this blog, do subscribe because exciting, beneficial lifestyle and fashion posts are on their way next week.
