Here at Bubby and Bean, I don't talk all that often about my other gig, where I (do my best to) make a living as a sustainable fashion designer. Maybe that's because this blog is such a sweet escape from the "day job." Or because I like it to be a place to showcase other artists' and designers' work, and things that inspire me in daily life, separate from my job. In reality though, even through the long work days, fabric delays, struggles to compete with the endless chain stores, and pattern makers who run off into the sunset with my samples (long story), I love what I do. And I've been thinking I should share a little more of it here with all of you.
For starters, I'm going to share our August Newsletter, which we published earlier today. Every month, I design a newsletter that we send out to our mailing list featuring specific styles or new designs. We also always include a special discount for our customers, who we love dearly for supporting our little company over the last ten years. This newsletter highlights some of our early autumn styles, and comes with a pretty bad ass 30% off coupon. Whether or not you're a sustainable fashion fan, I hope you enjoy this glimpse into one of the many little tasks that make up a day in the life of an independent eco-fashion label.
