Oh Designer's Guild!
I have lusted after you since I was a little girl.
The bright patterns always lure me in.
Sadly you are too pricey for me . . .and for this reason we can't have a working relationship. It would be great if you could sort that out & come up with a fabric line 'for the masses'.
Easton Pearson did it & so did Collete Dinnigan . . . .and lots of people at Target have been doing it for years . . . mind you though . . .they have sacrificed on quality.
You shoudn't, it weakens your brand.
Back when I was at University I would live off tuna & 2 minute noodles to buy overly expensive things I didn't absolutely need- like ball dresses, sparkly clutches & race hats. I want to do this trick now but I can't you see as I have a family . . . & they won't go along with it . . I just know they won't!
In the meantime while I search for pennies beneath the 'non designers guild' couch cushions I'll just peruse again to see what I'm missing out on!!
