Spencer AW 12/13 Fabric Suppliers and Stanley
Due to the tight time schedule I had to find fabric suppliers that were not only recommended but could meet the demands of the collection, deliver at short notice and were interested in working with us to develop a long term relationship.
It’s at this point that I want to say a HUGE thank you to Gill Eastgate, Stanley and the girls at 1612 Design. Without Gill’s help we would have really struggled. 1612 are wonderful, they design and supply bespoke uniforms for airlines, hotels… you name it and are quite simply brilliant.
Our fabric suppliers are based in the UK, Italy and France, my only regret is that we could not find a production house in Scotland and I’m guessing Spring Summer 2013 isn’t going to be their year either but we’ll definitely be looking for at least one for our Autumn Winter 2013/14 collection.
Stanley was very interested in helping choose and identify fabric suppliers when I visited Gill at 1612 – he is Gill and Ray’s cute puppy who goes with them (almost) everywhere.
If Valentino can have a pug named Oliver, Gill can have a Stanley!
