it feels great to visually see people are truly interested in what we’re trying to do here.  1,000 views in less than 2 months.. we’re addicted to you.  taide & i have ideas upon ideas flowin & have been mixing thoughts at a constant speed.  we lack patience however.. but our minds read patience as a lazy mans virtue.  w e  d o  w o r k .  we’re buying pattern paper this weekend to start our first pattern session studio 🙂 shall be interesting.  Patterns were my FAVORITE class at FiDM, besides Portfolio of course.. I would meet my friend at Starbucks every weekend during Industry and we’d sit there with 3 cups of Venti Coffees just memorizing the book, doing patterns out of napkin paper.. no joke.  I could do anything.  HOWEVER, getting a paid job in the industry tends to make you forget a few things.. unless I am a hired pattern maker, the closest i get to patterns is through fittings or spec writing / tech paks.  Needless to say, I have not sat down and made a garment from scratch since my Industry Patterns class in FiDM back in 2005.  FP FOCUS :: Our designs we are going forward with are no joke.. there is so much construction and we are anal about fit.  I hate going to a store, seeing a garment that looks gorgeous to the eye.. proceed to the fitting room to try it on and find out it fits like a junior company mass marketed $10 wholesale garment not even worthy enough to sell in the alleys.  EW!  Side Seams MUST match, I will not buy stripes unless it is a balanced pattern & quality quality quality..  Too many companies seek quantity versus quality now.. and i get it, the market is tough.  But true work will suffice.

Be prepared for some bitch worthy posts the next few months.. staying up all night doing patterns with cut fingers from drafting scissors and manila paper cuts [those aint no thang..] but its one of the many unpretty sides of design.  Keep comin back & reading our blog.. leave us some feedback, it makes us pee ourselves a little..  its only going to get more interesting starting the next few weeks.. we’re making positive progress.

Currently on the look out for FP Faces.  We have one, now we need a few more… do you have that FP Look?
