One of a Kind is a reoccurring idea that I have from time to time and I am looking forward to kicking it off. Currently, I work on a made to order basis. How that works is as follows..a lovely customer places an order online, I cut the fabric out from the designated pattern, sew it up, & send it their way. I love doing this, don't get me wrong, that is why I create a collection of classic pieces available all of the time, but the process lacks innovation for myself, which is why I would like to start "One of a Kind."
I would love to offer an area of the shop where I sell one off pieces. That will allow me to use fabrics that I find & love, but cannot buy enough to duplicate, therefore, couldn't otherwise use. This would also give me a reason to play around with making new patterns! The process of designing and creating new garments is slow in my existing operation, so I would love to use this as an opportunity to always be working on something new.
Before I moved to San Francisco, I had the chance to host a pop-up shop at Forage Modern Workshop in Minnesota. Preparing for this pop-up was really fun for me because I was able to create one off garments, with fabric that I loved, that could never be made again! It was a quick pace, but I need a little more of that in my life and I hope you guys are interested in this idea! More to come on when and how, but I want to get the notion out there and see who is interested!
