This week I have contacted Edward de lacy, his bag designs are exactly the type of bag that I was hoping to create myself. I have not yet created a successful tech pack although I decided to email Edward to see where he would be able to help me make my bags.
Not long after sending the email, I had a reply from Edward and he was happy to help me create my bags, I will be meeting Edward on Tuesday 10th may to discuss the manufacturing further, after much deliberation over using the riri zippers, I decided that I would trust Edwards judgement and use the YKK Excella zippers. I have been advised by other designers not to use RIRI zippers as they have had trouble with them sticking. A set price has been decided for the manufacturing and use of the zippers.
