November? POSTED BY anonymous 12.16.09
Wasn’t November the month that flew by? But, actually come to think of it hasn’t the whole of this year!? November started with Bonfire night. I love bonfire night and always go to the fireworks at Wimbledon if I can, because they are fantastic there. Then it was my mum’s birthday, followed by our development trip to Hong Kong. A week spent developing styles for next Autumn/Winter 2010-Wow, how we wish/ work our lives away! Myself, Carly, Deborah and Andrea – the LTS design team spent a week trawling around factories in Hong Kong working on designs with them. (Then we have spent the last month praying that they will come in ok) Each factory has its own strength and it’s our job to work with these strengths and develop a fully comprehensive range. It’s not perfect but every year we hope it gets better and that you like more of it, and figures indicate that we are going in the right direction. It’s been a real challenge taking on Canada too as now we have even more tall people to please but we are looking forward to it. I ended November in full Christmas panic, the range was put into work and we just had to wait for the samples to come in but in my personal life I had to begin the huge task of buying Christmas presents- Ahhhhh! With over 80 to buy it’s like a military campaign, it has to be well thought out and tackled in such a manner. To relieve my Christmas stress I went with some friends to see The Bangkok lady boys in the Mile High show at Leamington Spa. I have to say they were side achingly funny and I was incredibly jealous of their fabulous figures….
