Impulse Shopping Ahhh

Ohhh I just cannot help it…

Walking through the shopping center with a short list of essential items I need to buy but then the spirit of the Mango sale calls out to me, as a victim I became weak to it’s advances and drawn into the store… For real this is how it feels, sure you can relate!

I enter the war zone (the sale) frantically looking for my size, keeping an eye out before another snatches the clothing off the rack.

At the back of my mind I say there is no budget as I’ve worked ever so hard and need to reward myself… I mean it’s only a sale after all, half price off everything lol.

A sales person smells the weakness aroma coming from me and helps assist in the frantic search for my size, alongside this she transfers the pieces into the fitting room.

Like always I leave the fitting room with about 10 pieces out of 50… Don’t judge me!

The scanning process begins and all of a sudden the not so needed budget became important. One or two tops looked unattractive as you all know while impulse shopping we never pay attention but those had to go. Out of the 10 I leave with just 5, still calculating the damage I just made to my bank account lol.

Are Fashion Designers always right?

I have been studying the craft of sewing for 2 years now and  worked with a number of clients over the last few months to develop some bespoke pieces. If I had to rate myself, I’d say I was pretty good at what I do, its my passion, my first love, what I am dedicated to being the best at …  but still I find my prospective clients still doubt my ability to do a good job for them at first.

… I guess its natural for people to show little faith in letting go of control of the clothing design and creation process and trust me to achieve the right look for their body type at first…  I am proud to say a majority of my customers who let me drive are happy with their first fittings… and the others we typically make happy by the second fitting. For my VPC(Very Particular Customers), the process takes longer… why? because I let them drive at first … when that fails I take over and we get there.

There are two things to consider when creating pieces for a customer… What they want? And what will actually look good on them?

A good Fashion designer is here to bring you back down to reality, to help you sew the perfect piece for your body type and to get as close to the style of your desire.
