My Journey Down Fashion Avenue....:-D


Times Square, New York...

So during my trip, I decided to do the "touristy" thing and check out the sites and sounds of New York.  Of course I had to check out the stores - especially the 4 stores on Fashion Star - Saks Fifth Avenue, Macys (which I eventually did like 90% of my shopping), H&M and Express.  Of course  I also made a mental note to check out the factories or at least see where a lot of the manufacturing took place around here.

But first...  I had to do some shopping!  So off we went down that loooong stretch of road down Times Square.  I was just still staring at the video displays and the runways on the huge buildings when AA told me "Check out that HUGE needle and button over there"!  

Little did I know that I was RIGHT SMACK in the middle of the garment district!  My friend Moji only told me that later.   

Don't you just love this picture of me helping out my fellow "tailor"? :-D

And then my own history lesson began down the Fashion Walk of Fame!  :-D

Are You a Designer Swamped with Work?! Then You Should Consider Outsourcing...

Hello Everyone!!!  Been quite A WHILE!!!!!  Apologies... since my return from my trip it has been one thing or the other.  BUT truth be told, not updating the site has been partly due to work but mostly due to procrastination and laziness (insert-covering-my-face-emoticon-in-here) :-(

BUT here I am!  :-D... as always... ready to talk about one issue or the other.  And today's topic is about something that has been heavy on my mind for about 2 weeks now.... an issue which designers always face but refuse to do anything about - huge workloads!

Okay... pretend this is a designer under a huge pile of clothes and the computer is her sewing machine.  :-D
