It's been a year of many wonderful things. After the big launch of our signature collection, it was time for some rejuvination and replentishing of the soul. Time to look outside at the big wide world, and inside at motivations and inspirations. By painting, sketching, stitching and designing, I reconnected with my love of textiles and my goals of creating fashions that were sustainable and ethical, in a way that celebrated the creative process and the human touch.
The Slow Food movement has gotten a lot of attention, but Slow Fashion is similar in many ways and just as important. From the choice of organic fibers grown and harvested in a healthy, humane way, to small scale, ethical production, to sustainable consumer practices, Slow Fashion aims to have a positive effect on individuals, communities, and the planet.
By creating items that are lovingly made from design to hanger, I think we can remind people of the satisfaction they can get by choosing carefully and choosing less. Fast fashion is a hollow, destructive and wasteful machine and it is not the only choice.
