Tentative times

The title says it all. Aside from one where the colour is not as expected, the t-shirts are on the production line. As a result, more sampling is happening to check the colour is as close to the vibrancy as I want. Tentively waiting for the delivery so I can check everything is ok before the next stage. 

The labels have arrived. Brand, sizes, and wash care although I forgot to include the fabric composition and where they are made! Reorder pronto! Live and learn I say, which will be my mantra throughout this whole project / start up.   

 Name labels - exciting!

It is interesting how the business evolves; what your vision was to begin with and how it unfolds and the sacrifices you have to make. There have been a lot. Originally I was going to have the fabric made into a t-shirt that I had specifically designed. But cost became an issue so I have opted for a different cut. But now questioning this choice and some of the details, namely the collar. I am wondering if I can tweak them once I receive them whilst having the labels sewn in? Many many questions. 

Then it will be photo shoot time for the t-shirts to go on to the website and for the look book to be created. I am really excited about this as I get to be really creative again experimenting with colour and composition. Giving Tania Swift a strong visual aesthetic.

Then of course it will be time to sell sell sell. Will people be happy with their purchase? Will they sell well? How can I promote them more and more, get them exposed to the right audiences?

It is time to get researching again and being as savvy as possible, whilst seeking out many wise words from those who are experienced in this industry. This will be the key to my success!
