A Christmas pyjama gift set I designed for F&F is now on sale…
My Cat Christmas pyjama design is on sale at F&F. Makes buying gifts for godchildren a bit easier!
My ‘Not A Morning Person’ nightie design is now on sale at F&F. I never know which of my designs are going to make it all the way through from development to production so its always a nice surprise when ones I really liked turn up in the range, like this one!
I’m pleased with how these floral PJs for F&F have turned out. It was a tricky print to design.
Two new lines I designed for Camille. Commercial, but still quite fun and very strictly to brief.
Even after 7 years, I still get a buzz whenever I see my designs out there in the world, like the shortie set above. I found the Camille website the other day which is where some of my nightwear ends up. The first row and a half on this page are my designs, I love the poses they’ve got the model doing, its like they’ve asked her to really feel the message on the pyjamas.
I seem to be writing a lot about sleepwear at the moment, I guess thats because I’ve been working on it all week and been discussing some new opportunities to work with other companies on nightwear so its at the forefront of my mind. I’ve also added to the the nightwear gallery on my website. It seems its one sector thats staying strong in the downturn. I’ve always been one to follow where the work is so for now that’s fine by me. Below are a couple of designs I completed today.
I thought I’d show how I go about putting together my fashion graphics. This is just one process of a variety I use. I usually do most of my nightwear this way.
I’ve been working on high-volume commercial nightwear today. Above is one of the pyjama sets I designed. While this might not be the most cutting-edge, it is enjoyable and straightforward. And essentially, I’m still getting paid to sit and draw pictures all day.
The other day I blogged about feeling saddened by the poor standard of illustration and technical skill in commercial nightwear, pictured left are two of the sets I was shown as examples of bestsellers (these are not my designs). Well I guess we just have to give the public what they want!
I’m really pleased to have added content to the baby and toddler gallery of my online portfolio. This is an area I’d really love to do more of, so I’m hoping now I have this showcase of some of my best work I can feel confident to approach potential clients.
