Hello there! I have returned from the wilderness of pre-RAFW madness and the crazy, crazy five days that was Fashion Week itself.
It was a lot of fun and a hell of a lot of hard work, and now I'm sitting at my computer 24/7, with all fingers and toes crossed, hoping to see more orders come in.
I have already shipped off my first international order to my first international stockist - hurray!! Pleien in Singapore is a new boutique, selling the work of up and coming designers. Needless to say, I'm thrilled!!
Despite the fact that orders have been thin on the ground so far (this seems to be the way fashion week works - orders aren't finalised until weeks down the track, so there's still plenty of time) the whole experience was invaluable. The contacts I've made (stay tuned - there's an exciting plan afoot!), the inspiration I've gained and the confidence I've found all hold me and my business in good stead for the future.
I've just popped in to reassure you that I have not abandoned my blog completely and that I will post a full run down of fashion week and all that has happened and will be happening in the near future.
The lovely Isla is getting all of my attention this week after being such a little gem last week. Bless her!
Oh, and I am having a May Blow-Out Sale in my Etsy store. 25% off everything! Everything! Til the end of May.
Now back to mummyness.
