We had a really nice afternoon with Mr. Vesa Lýra last Saturday.
He took some photos of my unique costumes. Few corsets and jackets. You will see later those ;)
But as you can see here, the style of a photo is rougher than in the photos that we took to "Collection 2016". Let me tell you why.
This year has been heavy.
But also it has been eye-opening experience.
In good and in bad.
We had to make very difficult decisions, such as closure of our own shop "Hinee".
As well as closure of our own web shop.
In the future, We will do drastic changes in our collection.
We will change our visual line, but all so our way to work.
I, as a designer, want to do more unique collection.
Over the years, I've forgotten part of myself.
I have forgotten who I am and what I want to do.
And WHY I DO THIS.
Working as a Garment Designer does not make you the "easiest money" in the world.
Especially when you make a small collection, with small resources.
But, I won´t do this for money.
I'm doing this because I want to work for a better future.
In my own way.
At this point, I have to say goodbye to some of you.
Many thanks for the support and encouragement.
And before everything; thank you customers.
The style, which I will do in the future, is not going to please everyone.
(Just like we would have done so at some point.)
I will continue fight against "throwawayism",
but in the future IPIK Design is going to be rougher.
More like me.
