My crabby PJ design for F&F has turned out nice and bright for spring!
I’m pleased with how these floral PJs for F&F have turned out. It was a tricky print to design.

Ladies snowflake pyjamas I designed now available at F&F
New Boys Pyjamas in store at Tesco. I primarily design kids nightwear for F&F Central Europe, but we’re increasingly starting to design in common with the UK. This is one of my first joint-bought designs that is available in the UK.
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!
