I'm getting on splendidly with the collection for autumn/winter 2012 and it's looking very promising, well, at least in my own head it does! This week I'll finish and send of the black and white sketches and the measurement lists to a manufacturer in Turkey and hopefully receive first samples in a few weeks time. YES! HURRAY! I'm moving the production from far away Bali to relatively near Turkey! Unfortunately Bali turned out to be a total disappointment and a very troublesome business partner that didn't at all live up to my expectations. I'm very excited about Turkey, but I enter this business relationship less blue eyed than before. As soon as the black and white sketches and the measurement lists are completed I will start drawing out the all over patterns that I've planned for A/W 12. I'm SO looking forward to drawing again! I might need to pay a visit to the Museum of Natural History in Gothenburg, make a mental inspirational trip to Dalarna in Sweden and make research into old fables..... I can't reveal more than this yet. All good things will come to those who waits.
