Hall of Fame!

This post was planned to go live first thing this morning. But Blogger had other plans. Like, not letting me load pictures the way I wanted to. So instead, you have the 'official' inside view of my market brochure featuring:

my newest collection for Michal Miller

There are so many things I want to tell you about this collection so I'm just going to dive right in. (If you get bored just skim over it!  :o)

First, I never intended for a rainbow, but as I was rearrnging the prints into a nice format the the brochure this is what happened and I love it. I have a fun 'retro' project I'm trying to figure out using several of the prints. It will most likely be a blog-only special. I'll probably show it sometime late winter when Hall of Fame is shipping to stores!

My inspiration for this collection came from vintage high school photos. I love the look and feel of these pictures. And although most were in black and white I could imagine what the colors were. I wanted to bring that feeling into a collection, yet have it feel modern all at the same time.

Obviously this collection has a more masculine feel- we need that in this industry. The colors, shades, and prints were all chosen to speak to a broad audience with a focus on the 8-30 male population. Colors can be mixed and matched to form almost any combination of 'team' colors.

There are a few focus prints that have a general sports theme. The pennants print is one of my FAVE's right now!

Of course I had to add some simple plaids and a fun multi-stripe. The 'sport spots' (or cheerios- as I often call them) are super playful and fun.

The ticking prints are reminiscent of those vintage sports but have a contemporary feel to them. I also designed some 'almost' solids with a slight tone-on-tone texture to mix and match with the rest.

Another of my favorite prints are the ones with numbers all over them. I'm a sucker for anything with type on them. LOVE these!

In the days to come I plan to show you the fun new patterns I've designed with the prints. They are so fun to work with. Want to see just how fun!? Leave a comment telling me your favorite print and you'll be entered to win a bundle of 10 fat quarters from this collection!!!  I'll pick winners (yes, more than one!) on friday 11/18.

Can't wait to hear your favorite!

It is hard to pick a favorite, I like them all! I'll have to settle on the aqua numbers for now, just because you are making me. :)

Yes-always looking for sports prints! It will be hard to pick just three or four-love them! Just right for babies and boys too!
