|Holiday Heap 2011|
Thank you to everyone who stopped by my
table at Holiday Heap
All along as I've established five8ths, I've emphasized that I want my
clothing to be thoughtfully designed and well-made, from high
quality materials. My inspiration is a simple lifestyle, in which
one chooses clothes carefully and wears perhaps fewer, higher
quality, unique-but-timeless clothes.
After weeks of preparing for the craft fair, alone in my studio, and
years of envisioning the five8ths clothing line and business, the
most rewarding part of Holiday Heap was interacting with and receiving feedback from shoppers and vendors. The clothing spoke for itself--it elicited the kind of remarks I had hoped for, and some responses even fueled new ideas.
Now that I am headed back into
studio-mode, I am riding the flow of momentum from the craft
fair, steering a course based on the feedback from the diverse group
of people who attended Holiday Heap. I will be fulfilling orders from the
fair over the next few weeks, and updating my etsy store
remaining available Shackets and Keyboard shirts. I will also be
building stock and developing new designs.
Please leave a comment if
you have any—as you can see I appreciate it!
