I've just had some new protos in for next winters knitwear and I just had to tell everyone, they are amazing.
Its weird doing my job sometimes:
I have an idea
I draw it
I create a coloured drawing of it
We argue about it should it be in or out
I create a technical drawing of it
I create an excel specification sheet and send it to our supplier
I send artwork (this was artwork created from scratch, stitch by stitch) to our supplier
I wait a bit
I answer some questions
Then I get a proto, sometimes its bad and sometimes its great
Then I remember that through all these processes there was an idea, a vision and now I have a thing which I have designed and has been created for us.
And you get to wear it all next year :-)
