I’ve spent the last three days Cocorosing my way around China and our workshops. We’re in full swing for our SS12 production, starting with our Classic Elegance Leather collection, so I’ve been spending most of my time in this workshop. The collection is coming along beautifully and I’m also now keeping very busy designing and creating the new AW12 collection which I must admit, I am loving!

Here are some pictures that I took in our workshop…

This is the leather I developed as part of my SS12 collection. From concept to launch, this is always my favourite part of the process; it's amazing to see my designs take shape and be in full production swing. Each pattern is individually hand-cut from the skins.

Hand-cutting the patterns, one by one by one...

Each pattern is then carefully stitched in our workshop

Tools of the trade...

More tools of the trade...

 

From concept to reality... it's a proud moment! Coming soon, for SS12...!
