I'm excited about speaking this week at a new show, the Chicago Textile Expo, which is hosted by my friends Diana Muzzy and Flo Fiore-Battaglia of Fine Fabric Sales. I was invited to put together a seminar about pattern making, and I've been working on my presentation all week in between work projects and attending a few Fashion Focus Chicago events. My colleagues at The Apparel Agency are also speaking on the topics of material and consumer trends.
My presentation will focus on the process of pattern making and product development, and how to work with your pattern maker to ensure you have a good working relationship and get the results you seek in your products.
PATTERN DEVELOPMENT: HOW TO WORK WITH YOUR PATTERN MAKER
EDITED: As of November 2014, I am no longer associated with The Apparel Agency.
