GPOY - I just spent over 3 hours at one of my factories in Brooklyn (yes, I have more than one) going over mark-ups and spreading and construction and waste factors and everything else that they don’t teach you in fashion school. I think I’m going to teach a class at F.I.T. next semester. Topped off the day with an hour of fabric swatches and sample yardage orders and finally ate lunch and now need to create a production ticket for my other factory.
The fashion industry is only glamorous 10% of the time.
