How do you use your space?

I design all my collections in my space at River Studios. I have a few industrial sewing machines in which I produce a lot of garments in house. I cut all the fabric, do the pattern making and grading, fit and specs. I generally feel so inspired when I’m in the studio, it radiates so much positivity! Smiles all round.
