A few weeks ago i had the pleasure of traveling to San Francisco to meet with the women's designers at Levi's, share my new line and learn from their design process! It was a truly inspiring trip. I came home completely recharged and ready to start my next collection. You can read about my experience and tips i picked up on the Levi's Girl Blog.♥ Here are a few photos from the trip…
While at the Levi's headquarters I had the opportunity to share my dress line with the women's design team. They gave me feedback and some really good ideas for expanding the line next season. They shared some great advise about business, design and creating each collection around a story. It was a really special experience. The most inspiring thing about their studios was the racks and racks of vintage inspiration pieces. So cool. And they had inspiration boards everywhere (of course, I couldn't take photos of those!). It was really amazing to see how their collections go from conception to creation to production. Inspiring!
I loved the vintage thermos collection in their shop. Made me feel right at home! ♥
Here's a couple snapshots from my tour of the Levi's archives (eek!). I have to admit I requested to go straight to the 60s and 70s women's designs….. SO fun! Those gingham pants kill me. I hope to find a pair of my own on a vintage adventure someday. Fingers crossed.
I already blogged about the vintage shopping trip I took with some super sweet Levi's designers. I learned so much and feel super refreshed and inspired now. I filled nearly an entire notebook with ideas on the plane ride home.
For the past six months I've been a part of the Levi's Shape What's To Come Community. If I were to describe the community and the people involved in one word it would be genuine. It's a great website and I was honored to be a part of it! My contract is nearly up, but I will absolutely support their cause in the future. They were hugely supportive of Red Velvet and I am so thankful!
Well, thanks for reading about my fun little trip! XO, elsie
