We are just days away from opening our first round of voting for this year's Fabric8 Contest, the annual search for emerging fabric designers that will give one winning contestant a shot at designing a new collection for Moda Fabrics! Today, we're catching up with Lamai McCartan, the oh so talented designer who won last year's competition and landed the opportunity to release her first collection, Night Sky, with Robert Kaufman Fabrics!
Last year, we were delighted to get to know a bit more about designer Lamai McCarten (Lamai on Spoonflower!) in her Finalist Profile, and we are so excited to catch up and learn about her experience of winning the Fabric8 Contest and working with Robert Kaufman to designer her very first collection. Read on for Lamai's take on preparing for the contest and where she sees her designer career going after her win.
How did you feel when you won last year's Fabric8? How did you celebrate? Did you get that babysitter?
