December POSTED BY anonymous 12.22.09
Well December started with another development trip this time not so far flung to see the factories in Leicester. The samples have started to roll in from our trips to Hong Kong and Turkey so we are now starting to buy the range for Autumn/Winter 2010. I know it seems early but we have to do it now or you won’t get your catalogues on time! So far we have bought Trans, Autumn and Winter. Plus, casual wear and knitwear but we still have formal to buy. Its hard work but I have to say that this year we are all pretty pleased with the range and how it looks, And then my Christmas shopping, it’s nearly all done and all wrapped-What a relief! Now starts the mammoth task of transporting the presents to everyone, unfortunately neither Santa nor Rudolph can help me. Last week was a great week; I went to the “Chap party” on Saturday in my tweed revolutionary outfit. Tweed skirt with a bustle back –with the chance to say “does my bum look big in this?” and then feel ok when everyone says ‘yes’. I bumped into Claudia there, one of the models from our Winter catalogue; it’s always nice to see a familiar face. Then I went to see the Montezuma exhibition at the British Museum- Very inspiring, I can feel feathers and turquoise being very influential next year again. Dinner at the Paramount club on Thursday with a stunning 32nd floor view over London and then this weekend two birthday parties. I am getting lots of wear out of my long sleeve black lycra t shirt, my Eisel strapless shift dress, and my Sophy feather shrug. I’ll let you know what I wear this week as we have the works Christmas party, my Spanish class Christmas party and a night out at the Albert Hall with the girls from the Canadian buying team. Have a fabulous Christmas everyone!
