I’m Emily, welcome to my design world!

I provide a range of creative design services for businesses to support them in their design to manufacture processes :).

I am primarily an educated and experienced Childrenswear designer, with a passion for helping small businesses navigate the often overwhelming process of turning their ideas for garments into a reality!

I love to design whimsical, colourful and fun print designs which celebrate childhood. I am passionate about clothing with allows children to be children, and design which strives to put imagination and joy at the forefront of everything I deliver.

I am also passionately concerned about ethical manufacturing processes and advocate for organic and sustainable manufacturing options where possible. The majority of my 1-2-1 clients share these concerns and I support them where possible in building ethical manufacturing into their business plans. Meaning fair living wages, safety of workers, and organic production in all areas of the supply chains are sought after. I have built strong relationships with manufacturing partners who strive for these aims also and ideally look to direct clients to factories holding certifications such as GOTS thus ensuring stringent requirements for environmental and human safety are followed throughout the supply chain.

Here are some of the services I can offer:

• A range of ready-made surface design repeat prints for babywear, Childrenswear, and some offerings for home and womenswear. I sell these on various licenses suitable for different stage of business and budgets. Get in touch to know more and access my current available library of designs.

• Some free trend research boards, and upto date relevant information of interest for brands shared via my members newsletter

• I am working on a range of resources to help support stages of design and manufacturing for start up and small businesses on FAQ areas of the processes - such as how to plan your fashion brand, build a range, health and safety for Childrenswear, how to find manufacturers and deal with sampling processes etc. Links to other professionals I recommend to help and support in your journey.

• 1-2-1 services, for start-ups and small businesses helping in all areas of their design to manufacture processes. Including branding, garment design, print and pattern design, character design and development, tech packs and manufacturing support. There is usually a wait list if you wish for support for a start-up as I have several long term clients. If you want to find out more and get on the wait list please drop me an email with as much information as possible on your plans and what you require at emilybolterdesigns@outlook.com
