Client Diaries #4
Don’t get me wrong - ALL my client diary posts are special, but this one is super special.
I’ve known Richie for years, and she has been a supporter of my dream since day 1.
She loves everything I make for her, is so easy to work with and loves being surprised!
Before this order came up, Richie had already asked me to design a number of pieces for her, but something about this one brought a huge smile to my face…
Outfits for the whole family! For their portraits in the spring! CLAPS!
I was extremely confident about Richie’s and her daughter’s outfits, but I had never actually made a male kurta set. Well, there’s always a first time for everything, right?!
I had a sample piece with the pastel shades, so the colors were decided in an instant. We also knew we wanted a coordinated look but not complete matchy-matchy. Having a budget always helps - I knew exactly how much work we could manage and fabrics got sorted out quickly.
And that was about it! Few more details here and there, and we were well on our way to having these done!
I also pulled in a friend and fellow designer since Richie wanted accessories as well! Collaborations are so fun and really allow you to bring so many ideas together. Thanks to Vivat Jewelry for working with me on this!
Take a look! Don’t they look amazing? What a beautiful family! And if I may say so myself, here’s another 'feel good movie' post in the books!
One of my favorites! So natural, and the lighting is stunning!
