Yesterday I posted a photo of my new work tote. I was in the market for something classic and large enough to hold all of my design stuff . I went with the Zara Leather Shopper in blue (great for Summer) Below are some of go to items that I always have on hand during the workday.
Leather Shopper: The soft shopper by ZARA
Fabric + Wallpaper Swatches/Samples: I always have some kind of swatch in my bag…
Stone Textile Fold Bags: One for makeup and one for supplies
Gold Tape Measure: Yes, I just ordered this. Surprised?
Fabric Scissors: I still have my Gingher brand shears from college. The metallic fabric tied around it is from my Senior Collection back in the design school days — hope it stays on there forever!
Magazines: The latest design mags for inspiration–clients love seeing pretty pictures.
Paint Deck: I always have my Benjamin Moore desk on hand.
I Pad: When I present to clients I pull it all up on my iPad / case by Alexander Wang.
Clipboards: Each project we are working on has it’s own clipboard to keep everything (memos, invoices, fabric samples, design boards) in one place / acrylic clipboard by Russell + Hazel
