Sample, Size Grading & Pattern - break the mould
How exciting. Your taking the first step to creating your amazing products. This is the step that insures you are putting the things out there that you truely love. Remember, design is a competitive game but so many make the mistake of not correctly setting up the back bones of a fashion label. In this step you will create tell truth behind your brand. This stage is raw and beautiful and hand sketched and when you nail your sampling you no you will have a asset that is tdue to size and made with accuracy every time.
Treat each piece as its own & focus on that piece as your sampling is so important and you will use this pattern again and again and let the variations flow through while holding the perfect fit that you created at the start.
In this stage and every stage of design. Remember who you are and where you come from. Raw & dusty faced, draw it in your head, draw it in the sand, draw your inspiration from the beautiful landscape of Australia; then draw it on paper.
