Hi, I'm Louise Weigall, a production & sourcing consultant,
knitwear specialist, shoe lover and textile nerd.
After working in the industry of fashion product development for twenty years, I now help boutique designers navigate and simplify the sourcing and production process to successfully bring their product to market.
I absolutely love the creativity behind well designed product, but it's virtually impossible to bring a design to market without an extensive and experienced consideration of commercial outcomes, viability and sustainability of your business.
Holding tertiary qualifications in Textile Design, Visual Merchandising and Colour and Design, I've spent my career developing boutique product across the entire life cycle of fashion for high profile and mid-market Australian labels including ScanlanTheodore, Country Road, Willow, Gorman, Sass & Bide, Anna Hoffman, Jag and Grab Denim.
Manufacturing is a process which moves from design, to the practicality of making and back again. Sourcing, planning, pricing, production and distribution are all part of the process too. But it can be messy and time consuming, especially if you haven't done it before.
Whether you're just starting out, or three years in, I can be your partner and support to help you grasp the process of turning your vision into a real thing. There's nothing more satisfying that seeing your idea in the hands of a happy customer.
Oh......and when I'm not working, I'm hanging out with my sports loving son, and my home-handy husband, listening to business podcasts, or watching the current series of Younger on Stan. 😉
