Want To Design Garments And Need Help To Make

Story

The name comes from my love of wandering. Growing up in Los Angeles I developed a passion for discovering new things, exploring the different neighborhoods. My wanderlust expanded beyond LA, to the rest of the world. I want to see, taste and smell other cultures around the globe. It's that discovery that led me to painting and designing. I take inspiration from my travels and infuse them into my designs. I'm also a fashion lover and that's where I want to take my art, into fabric and garment design, fusing my passions together.

SCARVES

My first line with Wandering Boho is a collection of scarves based on my original paintings. What I love about using paintings as the basis of my designs is how the texture of the medium comes through. The prints feel like they have depth and texture.

I've designed 8 looks that cover a range of colors and prints. I've decided on silk because it feels luxurious to the touch and it's an amazing fabric to showcase colors and textures.

PRODUCTION

I've found a vendor who carries wonderful silks and can print my designs digitally, beautifully matching my colors. Digital printing allows for unlimited colors, smaller quantities than traditional methods and provides excellent light color fastness.

So far I've produced samples. The next step is to finalize the designs and begin production of my collection.

Risks and Challenges

Potential risks to the project include production complications or delays. Digital printing on silk can be challenging, so there is the potential for under runs or timing delays as a result. My vendor is in china, as that's where some of the best silks in the world are produced. With that there can be shipping delays due to customs clearance.
