'Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them' - Marc Jacobs
29andSeptember Studio is a complete solution for apparel and textile companies looking to outsource work, or get help.
I love the quote 'clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them' and like to view it in two ways - the way it was intended and also as a reminder that fashion is a business. It's all very well creating stunning designs, but someone has to wear them, or buy from your company. Each job I do, whether it's one print design or a whole fashion range, considers the business implications, as well as the design.
I'm also passionate about ethical and sustainable trading and believe that a business can have a conscience and be successful.
29andSeptember Studio has a unique pricing structure, which offers entry level pricing from as little as £20, allowing small businesses and start ups to get professional advice within their budget. I also offer free tips, trend information a fashion industry news on the blog, which you can see here.
Hi, I'm Vicki. I have 12 years experience within the fashion and textile industry & work with clients on a range of projects; from design & prints to production management & costings.
I've worked with some of the worlds biggest retailers, such as the Arcadia Group (Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, etc), French Connection and Zara, some of the best designers such as Alice McCall, as well as many small independent labels and agencies.
Through different roles I've been able to gain an in depth understanding of the fashion industry as a whole, from initial concept through production and to marketing, merchandising and selling. Even if I'm only working on a small project for a client, for instance a design project, I feel this 'across the board' experience helps me to deliver a better product, as I know how to create something both aesthetically pleasing as well as commercially viable.
Please feel free to contact me, I'm always happy to answer any questions.
I'm very fortunate to have worked with some lovely customers lately, who've left feedback for me on freelance websites that I use. You can click below to enlarge the image and read the reviews.
