New Collection, new projects and creativity in my life

As it was long coming and I did stretched this as I possibly could, but I am finally in a stage of finishing my new footwear collection. I think it's a first time in years that I had the total idea and final designs for my collection even before trial and error, frustration, sleepless nights etc.. This time I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but as funny as it sound I couldn't started until recently, I was too busy. Between getting my orders done, my online courses, lecturing in a local College and designs for a clients, nothing gives me such a satisfaction and excites me as transforming my ideas and designs from my head into a real pair of shoes. That is a great feeling, that reminds me why I started design shoes in the first place.

Shoemaking Marathon Week: Day One

After a lot of writing and answering questions for the past week, I decided that few actions need to be done. A lot of questions regarding the "Shoemaking & Techniques for Creative Footwear Design" book evolved in areas and directions that I didn't thought of them , but it is alright and I'm here to explore the book more thoroughly.
Because, nobody wants to read this post for an hour, and because I didn't wrote everything yet, and still thinking of how to explain some of the questions that you asked me or you may ask in the future, we will do it a whole week.
Here is what we will be exploring for the next three days:

* Day one: The most asked about chapter is chapter 2, the "Golden points". So, for the day one (today) I will be doing tutorial on" How to properly construct the Boot pattern according to gold points". 

* Day two : (Hello chapter 2, again) " How to adopt your design to Golden points by bending some rules". This one is for those of you who struggle with strict rules of pattern making. When your vision of design is way different from what the golden points are, and you know that if you break them, you will have some issues with your shoes. I will show you how to fix it in more creative and professional way.

* Day three: Since the chapter 6, (How to build an entire collection just with 2 types of lasts) "made the day" for some of you and that fact made my day as well, I wanted to extend this chapter ideas and that's what we going to do on the third day, " How to transform your sandal last into platform sandal last".

This is the schedule for next three days, and the rest will be updated, you are welcome to add your own questions that you had from the book, and I will try to include them as well.
