- Are you only going to be doing women’s t-shirts?
Nope, certainly not. The shop is all women’s right now simply because my designs so far have had a more feminine slant, and because most of the stock I have is women’s shirts. I have a few men’s t-shirts in stock, too, and am brainstorming ideas to put on them. So, eventually I will have clothing for both genders. Also, I will probably eventually branch out into printing things that aren’t shirts/tanks: dresses, skirts, tote bags, scarves, etc. We’ll see. This whole venture is a trial-and-error work-in-progress.
- Are you ever going to show the shirts on actual people instead of just the mannequin or yourself?
Yup. The tricky part right now is that my mannequin is XS-S size, and I’m a S-M size, so I’m a bit limited on what fits where as an accurate fit representation. HOWEVER, come this fall I am inducing some friends into being models for me in a fun little photo shoot, so there will be a human factor in the shirt photos after that.
- What’s the point of ‘Like’-ing your Facebook page?
Well, for one, it gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Also, it’s an easy way to keep up with updates about new designs and shop items. AND eventually it’ll be the place to be clued in to exclusive coupon codes for discounts on store items.
- Can I find your stuff at any sort of local store or craft fair?
Not at the moment, but I’m on the waiting list for membership in Austin Craft Riot, and hope to eventually have a diverse enough inventory to approach a local store or have a booth at a craft show.
- Are you going to partner with anyone to grow DA?
Hrmm. No plans to, at the moment. I like a certain amount of creative control. If someone was interested in coming on board DA and we worked together well and their style meshed well with mine… maybe.
