Sourcing materials is a daunting task when starting out as a designer. From my experience, leather retailers rarely have what I am looking for, whereas leather wholesalers have better selection. Conversely, wholesalers require minimum orders - how does an emerging designer purchase these costly minimums, when all we require are small quantities of leather? I have yet to figure it out. Please see my video below of my most recent jaunt through New York City's Garment District.
