Catch up with a talented designer - Allure Designs

I thought it would be a nice idea to have a catch up with some of the talented designers I have featured on my blog this past year.

First up we have Allure Designs, which was formally known as Tiffany Designs, she was featured on my blog back at the beginning of February, so just over 5 months ago!

So what has happened in those 5 months, well Allure Designs has secured the wonderful licensing deal with Kekacase alongside myself.  She has also had 20 of her designs chosen for a new magazine called Texitura 50! Wow.  Texitura is a resource for markets such as fashion, stationary and textiles, which gives trend forecasting information on colour and pattern that will be coming into season in the following 18 months.

Allure Designs has always been interested in fashion (I can definitely see her lovely designs in the fashion industry) and textile design from a very young age.  She loves that patterns make our world a brighter place and finds that they uplift her spirit, which she hopes is how they make others feel too.

So what have you learnt in the past 5 months?  Allure Designs has learnt a lot about obtaining more licensing work and how to go about selling more of her designs aswell as how to work to specific briefs where the client asks for quite narrow specifications.

It sounds like Allure Designs is well on her way and it is lovely to hear back from designers to see how they are doing.  Hopefully we will catch up with Allure Designs again in the future, for now here are some of her newest patterns, I love her bold and bright colour palette and the Ikat designs (first two patterns) are gorgeous, perfect for summer dresses!

Oh and check out her blog here.
