I recently completed a big hand painted wedding order of 21 bow ties and one hair bow for my customer from New York!! We were under a bit of time pressure with her wedding being early November so I worked hard every morning from 5.30am before going off to my day job as lawyer and the bow ties are now safely in my customer’s hands in New York.
One thing about running a business is that, while things often go well, sales roll in and everyone’s happy, equally now and then things are not going to go perfectly! Originally my customer wanted a mix of black and white hand painted bow ties and coloured hand painted bow ties. We went through a number of drafts, with me creating different designs with the guidance of a colour palette and inspiration photos sent by my customer.
Unfortunately we just couldn’t settle on a colour theme and design for the coloured bow ties that hit the spot for my client and her fiancé!
The black and white hand painted bow ties looked pretty cool regardless and I can’t wait to see photos of the big day!
