Many of you will be forgoing store-bought clothes in favour of getting a local designer to make your outfits this Crop Over season. Props to you for supporting local! However, there are a few things you’ll need to bear in mind to ensure that the experience is satisfactory for both you and the designer.
Krystal Cobham of Kadburry Designs shares five of her pet peeves. Since they basically boil down to asking clients to be considerate and realistic, other designers will probably feel the same way.
- “Alterations. Unless it’s a simple cut and hem, I hate it. It’s double work.”
2.“Asking for a photo of a finished outfit then saying it looks really small or too big. Like really, it’s a photo.”
3. “Bringing the fabric today and expecting to get the outfit finished tomorrow or the day after. Wait in line. If you want something done for a particular date, get the fabric to me at a suitable time.”
4. ” Expectation that it will fit perfectly the first time around. That’s why there is a fitting.”
Now you know what not to do, go do your part for local entrepreneurs and look fierce this Crop Over Season.
