Hi, I'm Vicki. I'm a freelance fashion and print designer, with 12 years experience in the fashion industry and have worked in a wide variety of roles, including designer, buyer, pattern cutter, garment technician and merchandiser, to name a few. Over the last year, since I started freelancing, I've worked with a lot of people who have amazing design talent, but little-no knowledge of the fashion industry. Therefore, I've decided to use the 29andSeptember Studio blog to provide education and how-to's on a variety of industry topics, including manufacture, trends, negotiating with factories, planning a production schedule and so on. If you're having a specific challenge with your business, I'd love to hear about it and I encourage readers to ask questions.
To hear about the latest posts, you can follow 29andSeptember Studio on social media or sign up to the newsletter. The following tags will guide you to information that is most relevant to you (click the title to view blog posts);
