Much to make! Luckily inspiration is rampant and gifts abound! The lovely Claire behind awesome vintage finds at ecoindisguise.com gave me this beautiful vintage upholstery fabric and I just couldn’t chose which side I like better!
No need to resist! I made a ~reversible~ Skirt! Fun florals pair wonderfully with my newly finished pink crochet crop (featured below), and the heavier weight fabric will be perfect for fall weather. I even created a paper pattern (which doesn’t always happen 😉 ) so I can forever embrace the two-sided “couch” fabrics that I love so much!
And here it is all finished on Brigitte!Stay tuned for peeks from this photoshoot we had yesterday as well as more and more new pieces before they debut on the runway!
We’re pleased to announce that Amalya Meira, an emerging womenswear designer and Seek fashion tour guide, has been invited to show her designs at Vancouver Fashion Week this September. We’re also happy to announce that we’ll be helping to sponsor the show!
Scheduled for September 27 – October 4th, Vancouver Fashion Week will feature emerging and undiscovered talent in an environment that celebrates multiculturalism. In the weeks leading up to the event, Amalya will be blogging here about her design process and the work that goes into creating a show for Fashion Week, so check back periodically for updates! In the meantime, you can visit her website or this page to view some of her designs.
