Sourcing for Fashion Designers
In this two-hour session, young designers will hear first-hand accounts (from the ridiculous to the hilarious) of what can go wrong, and what can be done right, to source the fabrics, trim, development expertise and production help needed to take ideas from drawing to draping to drop-shipping. Presented by Betsy Dee, the workshop promises lively accounts of real-life events, how-to's (and how-not-to's)-followed by Q&A's on the trials and tribulations of designing for manufacturability.
Ms. Dee is the designer behind Bad Pants and the owner of betsy dee/sf, a boutique that features the work of both emerging and established California designers with special emphasis on the Bay Area.
Participants in the workshop will also qualify to receive a useful compendium of fabric wholesalers, trim sources, pattern-makers and manufacturing facilities.
