FB: Can you describe the birth of the Diligent Clothes garment from idea to the store?
DC: All projects of Diligent Clothes are created by the duo of Marta and Szymon. The first project phase is very interesting and creative. In the initial stage, a lot of drawings and fashion sketches are created. Often, fabrics determine a lot of ideas. The important moment is working with a constructor, discussing the technical part of the projects and prototyping. And here comes the moment when the collection in multiple copies is produced in the atelier, and then goes to the shops.
