I have not made any new handmade accessories or stationery goods since the trip back from US. But I did catch alot of eye-opening designs and concepts when I was in New York and Philly. (: They have a wide range of paper products and beautiful fabric designs there!
There were polaroid cameras, fish eye cameras, old school film cameras, toy cameras and much much more! I guess we see these products in the Singapore market too, but the amount of tech support and additional gadgets and accessories that come with it are just breathtaking. Anyone who owns a polaroid camera would love the range of polaroid film designs and effects they offer.
I admit its going a lil bit off topic here! From handmade accessories to cameras... but in terms of sourcing for inspirations, the film and media industry in the US come up with such creative tech equipment, print media and stationery and they package everything so attractively! There's so much to learn from them and apply it to how we market our products, whether you're selling cookies, accessories, clothes and whether you're doing it as a business, a fundraiser or for charity, innovation and creativity helps alot. (:
Soooo I'll be back with a new collection on Spring Shades pretty soon! Also, a little announcement.
I've rented a booth at the Singapore Scape Flea for 17 June 2012! So for those who wish to order, you can collect your items from me directly at Scape flea rather than by the usual mail! (:
Stay tuned to Spring Shades Collection coming out soon! (:
