It's been back to business ever since the party and we have been working hard to bring you all our S/S 2016 collection, "Whirlwind"!
I have been thinking a lot about the direction of the company and objectives for this collection and really, this is the "Make It Or Break It" collection. We are excited to be producing our collection through the Denver Fashion Design Center with help from Lisa and Brian. Their expertise will assure that this collection is of the highest quality construction aannndd allows us to support the industry right here in our home city! In addition, our main fabric is a stretch recycled polyester and hemp chambray, as being as eco friendly as possible is one of our company objectives.
Whirlwind features updated versions of Puff and Flash, styles our customers know and love. (Don't believe me? Check out some testimonials on our homepage @ www.blackberrymaverick.com ) It also is enhanced by new separates that compliment the classics:) The "Bolt" pants feel like your wearing nothing. Like, no pants. None. Just air. Flowing freely around your bottom half. It's pretty epic.
So c-mon ladies and gentleman!!! Support us! Get yourself something from the collection! Get your mom something, your little sister something, your brother's girlfriend something, your wife's besty something, your roommate who has grocery shopped the last three weeks in a row something, you get the gist;)
I need all of your help and support to turn our samples into a production run!! We are running up to a size 12 this time so all of you curvy hotties who are lucky enough not to be shaped like a soda can like me, show off them curves!!!!
Over the next week I will be finalizing our Kickstarter campaign, so keep a look out on our social media for when that goes live! This will allow you to pre order a piece from Whirlwind or donate to receive special BMAV gifts made with love just for you:)
On the wholesale business side of things, my mentor and fabric source, Jay Arbetman from The Sourcing District has told me how cool and up and coming Nashville is. Turns out, he is right! (Per usual:)) and therefore, I am planning a sales trip to Nashville for the second week in November! Anyone know of boutiques that we might be a good fit for or cool places we shouldn't miss while we are there give me a shout @ firstname.lastname@example.org .
