Spring Sketching

I took this gorgeous book out of the library. The content and the pictures are excellent research material I’ll probably end up buying it. (Amazon's marketplace is my favourite way to buy obscure books for cheap.)

India is my influence for our spring collection. I should be further along in the design process, but alas, January has been my procrastinating month. I’ve just started on sketches.

Not sure how other people work, but a lot of my designs just come to me. It begins with a fleeting image which keeps festering until it’s all consuming. From there I start sketching, then researching and touching up sketches until it’s ready to be finalized.

This will be the first time that I’m doing a cohesive collection with all original artwork and I’m excited to see how it’ll turn out. Stay tuned!


  1. Can't wait to see the new collection - you'll have to let me know what shows you are taking part in this Spring.

  2. Hi Michelle!

    I'm considering doing SpeakEasy again but I'm not 100%. How about you? What's on the radar?

  3. I've applied to Speakeasy (deadline is this Thurs Feb 3) and am trying to find something new to take part in...will let you know what I find out!
