We have got a real treat for you today! FIGO Fabric designer Sarah Gordon is on talking about her latest fabric collection Forage, a beautiful mix of teals and magentas with modern florals, fruits and some sophisticated bugs.
And she answers the question of what type of fruit is featured in the collection. I know you all have been dying to know by your comments!
Sarah started her career working in the fashion industry, first coloring fabrics for the new seasons taking her inspiration from the catwalks. Then she moved onto designing prints and later working with partners to found her own company that designed apparel fabric.
But she wanted a change of pace when she was pregnant with her second son, closed her business, move from busy NYC to an island in the Pacific Northwest and started designing on a freelance basis, working from home.
The move ended up putting her in a great space creatively and to be able to continue making a living when the pandemic hit and everyone had to rethink how and where they worked.
And of course we chat about how she designed Forage, her inspirations and process of going from a hand painted inspiration piece to the fabric collection we love.
