What was your inspiration for starting this company?
We wanted to provide an alternative, more mature brand of children’s clothes than what is normally available, while still keeping it stylish and fun! We now offer sizes that range from baby all the way up to adult. We hope you can stop by to check them out!
How did you pick the designers that you showcase?
We carry our own brands and each of them has unique, distinguished designers.
How do you come up with ideas for your designs?
We simply design what we feel to be stylish and hopefully what you would find interesting. We use the most unique styles and best materials from all over the world. All of our fabric is woven in Japan, using the finest quality imported cotton. We also utilize Indigo as one of our core bases for merchandising.
Who is the Trico Field customer?
Anyone who values excellence in quality and design, regardless of what the current trends are. Our customers are often willing to challenge preconceptions held by the fashion world today.
How influential do you think designers are today on children’s wear?
Children’s wear is slowly changing as today’s designers look to children’s clothes for inspiration. It’s great to see the integration of adult and children’s designs and we are at the forefront of it.
How did you get your start in fashion illustration?
Before I started my career in fashion illustration I worked as a freelance stylist. I worked in this industry for more than 10 years, being on a set, sourcing clothes for different themes and working on briefs for different clients helped me a lot to develop my style and taste in my illustrations.
Tell us what you want people to know about you as a fashion illustrator
In my illustrations I always try to focus on a theme, whether it is a color, a wonderful fabric or an outstanding pattern. I like to tell stories. And for me a picture is the best way to tell a story.
You have many styles that are all very different, how did you develop them?
To be honest I am a very curious person. I always try to figure out how things work, why certain things are happening. That is why I am always trying new things. My curiosity is the starting point for a new drawing, or a new technique, if I like the result, I show it to my boyfriend. If he likes it, it is kind of proved to be good. He works in fashion as well as a photographer and is always a very helpful guide.
How do you decide what illustrating style to use? How does the idea develop?
It depends on the briefs, but usually I have already a picture in my mind. I try to listen to my intention and start to get into a flow. If there is no flow ,the illustration is useless. I find it quite amazing, how the human brain develops fantasies and images. Quite often ideas occur out of the blue in unusual situations, I always have a sketchbook with me.
What inspires you?
Traveling and reading. The last couple of years I always go on vacation in the wintertime for approximately 4 weeks. I like to explore the world, backpacking is the best way for me to do this. Last time we went to Papua New Guinea. Seeing the tribes and the nature was the best. During these holidays, one of the highlights is to sketch in a diary. Once back home, I still can remember every situation, when I flip through these sketchbooks.
Is there a brand or someone that you would love to work with?
I really would like to do more traveling stories.
