Good afternoon everyone:
This is my first time ever posting a note online. I’ve read some of the messages and I’m like…”GREAT! I’m not alone and someone out there can actually answer my questions!” I’m 25 and storngly desiring to design a line of bed linens for newborns. However, I have no clue where to start. My degree is in fashion design. Yet, since graduation(2002) I’ve been working in various positions in retail until I figured out exactly what I wanted to do. Well, that time has come. I now work at my companies corporate office, but I realize…this isn’t me. After much thought and narrowing my ideas down, I figured out designing bed linens is the way to go. I began drawing a few prints and they’re adorable (FYI: I can draw much better than I can sew). My question is where do I start to have samples of my prints created? What company would create swatches in the actual fabrics I desire to use for a story board?
Does anyone have any leads??
