While I won't be opening a swanky design studio and quitting my day job anytime soon, I am very happy with the outcome of Floremark and will definitely continue with my line. So yes there will be several more styles coming for spring. In the planning stages are two tops, both made of organic cotton, and a cardigan, done in a wonderful denim blue cotton/rayon knit that feels like silk jersey. Also I want to make one or two rayon/lycra knit skirts if I can find fabrics with the perfect print.
Ideally I would like to present the collection as whole, but realistically that is not possible. Apart from my other life stuff, there are also work on orders and the bridal dress that needs be done. So finding time is a challenge. Also I have to say that running my little clothing line has been a pretty respectable learning curve - like getting a hang of everything from finding good wholesalers to understanding the ins and outs of marketing. I still have tons of stuff I would like to do with Floremark, but since this is a moonlighting gig, everything will not happen as quickly as my impatient mind wants it to.
Anyhow the first top will appear sometime in March and will probably be the striped one to the right in the photo.
