I wanted to introduce myself, my name is Astrid- Sue, but everyone just calls me Astrid!
I started here at Sweaty Betty alongside my side kick Lisa about 3 months ago and I oversee and look after the design room. Lisa and I became friends about 12 years ago when I started to help her become a designer! We have been through many projects and designs together, but I can say that I am super excited about helping her and my new friend Jenny out here, and becoming a Bettie!
My role within the design team and collection developments is to try on the samples and developments when the fit model is not here!
I also, get pins and Fabric stuck in me quite a lot when Lisa & Jenny are trying to work out how one of their drawn designs will work in 3D! I love my job and am really looking for to contributing too many many more designs!
What I have seen so far is all very exciting and the AW10 collection, which is my first for Sweaty Betty looks amazing! I can’t wait for you all to see it! Jenny & Lisa are hard at work on the SS2011 collection, so I expect I will be working very hard helping them develop their new designs into 3D.
Anyway, I will keep you updated as to how the design room is getting on from time to time and keep you posted on any good gossip and news from here!
So, bye for now....Have a great weekend.
Astrid, Design Room Mannequin
