This Week in the Studio...

IMG_2229


Hooray! She Dressed in Black are pleased to announce that preparations are well underway for our very first A/W 2011 dress & accessories collection!


Challenging & thrilling in equal measures, we're super excited that we're now in the position to get the ball rolling with this project after over a year of planning. We first started sketching initial ideas before we'd even decided to live together and have been bouncing around and expanding on ideas ever since.

Monday was so much fun, spent gathering materials, ribbons, trims & buttons from around the studio, consolidating ideas and creating the most stunning fabric colour scheme & texture board (even if we do say so ourselves...!) We've gathered up all the essentials & the sewing machine is now in pride of place on the workbench!

Having reached our financial target with the funds we've generated through creating our 'I Like You' prints, we've also just ordered swatches of fabric in a couple of our chosen tones to ensure that the quality is absolutely perfect before ordering our final choice of sumptuous textiles. Cannot wait until they arrive. The next step will be finalising sketches, purchasing fabrics (this may include an exciting trip to London to ransack the cloth houses!) and producing toiles for the samples.

We still can't quite believe that our designs are soon to translate into exquisite & charming attire (eeeee!) and we really hope that you enjoy watching the process of it all coming together :)

So we don't ruin the surprise just yet here's just a small collection of snaps that have been inspiring us in the studio! We'll share some more snippets really soon... Feel free to leave a comment too, we'd love to know what you think!
