With international factories COVID-19 related issues affecting their production, running on skeleton crews and huge back orders stacking up, we have had quite a few designers booking out our schedule to get their next production samples ready for their product run offshore, by having their patterns made and sampled onshore.
So once again we have some full days booked with designers developing ranges for their fashion ranges.
We also have brides requesting gowns with the easing of people allowed to gather at weddings.
But best of all, we have many young designers finding time this year to pursue their dream of developing a product and having lessons.
Christmas time will also impact fashion in some areas, as some factories and suppliers are closing earlier this year, and having an extra week off.
Then we fall into the Chinese new Year where some international factories can close for up to 23 days.
2021 is the Year of the OX
This will happen in February.
Therefore at the moment, we may only have a couple of days through the week available for fittings, via our web site booking schedule during November, December, January and February.
I hope this is not an inconvenience for anyone.
If you have something that requires urgent attention then send me a email, message, text or phone and I will see where I can fit you in or help you out.
