If you've been following my journey so far you will know that I have been voted one of the top 8 designers out of 650 for a recent competition. But this isn't just any competition. No sir-eee! The prize for this comp is a licensing deal with Robert Kaufman!!
What's the big deal, I hear you ask!
Well, Robert Kaufman is one of the top fabric companies in the States. Lot's of designers submit work to them on a daily basis and get turned away. So to bag a licensing deal with this company is very, very hard to do, if not impossible without an agent representing you.
What is a licensing deal?
Well, I would get the chance to design a collection for RK and then I would earn a percentage for every sale - which could end up being a LOT of sales
Why do you want to win so much?
Well, #1 this is just a jaw dropping amazing opportunity for any designer and it's something very, very special to add to your C.V/website. If I can say that I have licensed a collection with RK, then all the other companies I approach in the future will (hopefully) prick up their ears and take a little bit more notice of me and my designs- take me more seriously. Competition is fierce in the surface pattern design industry.
So do you want to vote for me? Yes? Cool! Here's How...
