My amazing pattern maker....

Since I started Garçonne, I have been so blessed to have met so many amazing people. People that I just love hanging out with and talking to. One of the best things has been meeting my pattern maker Jacqui.

My first sourcing fair...

My first sourcing fair...

I got a bit excited early on in the piece and decided that I just had to go to Hong Kong to visit an apparel sourcing fair.

I was surprised, that at such a big international sourcing fair, so little of the company representatives spoke any English. I had a hard time trying to talk with sales reps and had to resort to some sort of sign language most of the time.
