Blue is the New Black

Blue is the new black book

If there were a resource for helping guide emerging fashion designers get through the murky sea that is the production process, this book is it. It’s packed full of so much useful information and lays everything out in an easy to understand step by step process. A must have for the bookshelves of all fashion brands.

Poppin Monogrammed Notebooks

Poppin Notebook

We love these notebooks (though admittedly we don’t have a monogrammed ones! They’re even cooler.) We had the fun and colorful experience of visiting the Poppin offices in NYC and had so much fun picking office supplies in bright and cheerful.  And we love their motto: “Work Happy“. The only way to do it, in our opinion!

Makers Row Membership

Makers Row Membership

One of the biggest headaches of running a fashion business is figuring out the manufacturing; sourcing, sampling, production…there’s a lot to work out. Makers Row is a really cool platform that makes navigating the whole process a lot easier. They have an extensive database of factories and suppliers for designers to use as they build their supply chain.

Adorable Little Sewing Machine Charm

Sewing machine charm

We’re so into this charm. It’s small and sweet, arty with it’s sketch design, and eco friendly to boot! Plus, it’s so cool when we can support our fellow emerging designers, right?! Love it.

Happy holidays, designers!
