    Hi Cyril,

    Peter here. Thanks for your comment.

    I’m definitely not in a rush to launch with a large line of leather jackets. It is quite the investment piece for anyone, including myself as a designer. I think the mistake many new designers make is assuming they need to create a huge scene with a show and large collection.

I’m currently designing new jackets every 2 months, this shift in non traditional model helps me work on my designs and pace myself, creatively and financially.
