Hi, thank you for visiting Print Libraries (PL), an online textile design and trend forecasting studio based in the Brisbane Inner City, situated in sunny Queensland, Australia. I hope something we have created has inspired you along your way here to learn about the Studio. My name is Britt Laspina, I founded Print Libraries after years (+9) of both Freelancing as a Textile Designer and working in house for Fashion and Lifestyle brands in Australia.
I knew there was something that was missing, something I couldn't offer freelancing to add the most value to my clients. I needed to launch something new, a range of prints under each era, each category, an archive of sorts, a library. A library where prints were ready to be purchased and downloaded in an instant, where designs were in perfect repeat, with matching colour ways and practical mock ups all at an affordable price. The difference about this studio (not only just the price point and convenience) would be the selection of designs, only the best would showcase, it would be a curated assortment of trend forecasted and vintage designs. So, Print Libraries was born!
I believe product designers and buyers have so much on their plate, for them, it is about the big picture, it is about the season, featuring multiple product lines and styles. In some workplaces, a lot of time can be wasted in house on the design phase, sometimes it can feel like everyone has an opinion on the placement of a motif. This is why I find Print Studios so important; I have learnt from some of the most vintage General Managers in the industry, and while they always had an in-house team, often times hero prints were purchased externally. Why only hero prints you ask? Because Print Studios are expensive. I wanted to offer brands the opportunity to purchase staple designs too, all at a reasonable price.
Each design has been carefully trend forecasted and designed, with evidence streaming off the runway and both social and community trends. The Trends section on our webpage is a great example of where the inspiration for a lot of our designs come from. I learnt the importance of Trend Forecasting when I exhibited my designs at Premiere Vision in New York City, while a lot of designs are about mainstream trends, such as tropical prints and florals, there are always those prints that have a special reference to a particular time or season.
If finding a great print can help the pieces fall together, I want to be able to offer that. Print Libraries is the place for Designers and Buyers to log in and shop, exclusive trend forecasted designs at an affordable price on a first in best dressed basis. I hope you find a design for what you are looking for, if not, we design custom prints, mood boards and range mockups. Please send me an email if you would like to chat, or if you have any questions. Bye for now!
