Well this week took quite a turn. What started out as any other normal week turned into a few days of extensive research about fabric production and the fashion industry. I still have a lot to learn but it has been an eye opening experience. We have, shocker, more rain the forecast the next few days, but next week I have a shoot with one of my favorite brands in Newport so I am really excited. More to come on that. Happy weekend everyone.
