049 – Bianca Elgar – How to Choose the Right Manufacturer

Bianca Elgar is a print designer, and founder and creative director of the Bianca Elgar brand.

I first met Bianca not long after I founded Make it British, when she came to me looking with help to develop her first fashion collection using her prints.

Her business has now evolved from a capsule collection of clothing to a lifestyle brand, using her designs to create statement pieces for interiors and lifestyle.

In this interview Bianca talks about how when a good design and great manufacturing come together it creates alchemy – which is a great way of looking at it!

She explains why it’s so important to find the right manufacturer, and advice on how to choose the perfect one.

Some of the topics discussed:

– Transitioning from screen print to digital print

– Evolving a business from one product area to a new one

– Tips on how to choose the right manufacturer

– Creating heirloom pieces
