China is getting better every passing day! I'm getting acquainted with the city of Dongguan, I'm networking and meeting new people in the business of footwear, and the most exciting part is I'm getting more of my designs sampled! Designing is becoming more and more more fluent and cerebral...I'm thinking more about what it will take to acquire the desired outcome I invisioned (corrections to blueprints, molds, stitching processes, materials, etc.). I'm becoming a better all-around designer slowly....but SURELY! Stay tuned!
