Fabric Find

27-10-2008   





In recent months I have had designers contact me with a request to find cheap fabrics.  With the current climate it’s not surprising to hear that designing a collection especially buying fabric can indeed be costly and at times keeping your collection going can feel like an uphill struggle at times.

 

Well, FashionCapital has found some great online resources that can help you.  The website we are about to review has a wide selection of fabrics such as dress fabrics and show time fabrics, couture fabrics, trims such as ribbons, tassels, threads etc.

 

They cater for the smaller business with fabrics under £2.50 per metre.

Now where would we be with out good old e-bay? Some hate it, I love it and have found a company that are selling Liberty prints by the bucket load!  Now those of you who have kept up to date with the trends that we have been talking about on FC would be in no doubt that PRINT will be very big for Spring/Summer 2009 which is what the designers are working on now.

 

The only down side is that they only supply small quantities…
