I’m going to start transferring resources that I have found particularly useful to inform myself about the issues related to the global Textile, Clothing and Footwear Industry. The link below is my old page with some great resources. I will be nullifying it as I will be transferring them over to these blog pages – http://www.odeliska.com/pages/ethical_fashion.htm. Check ‘em out!
The more we talk about this stuff and the more we ask of our suppliers the closer we will get to solving the issues.
If you are a designer, here is a good place to start – http://www.ethicalfashionforum.com/7.htmlNo comments
Inspiration for stunning dresses can be found by clicking on the menu links on the right. Jenny Packham is my favourite – shazaam!
If you would like to view some pics of my client work ie. ball dresses, wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses please go to www.odeliska.com/pages/bridal_fashion.htmlNo comments
Ok, aside from the fact that the fabric samples I have received are from America, I am excited to offer fabrics that embody the principles we should all be trying to weave into our everyday lives – sustainability!
Charmeuse is like satin but has a ‘grainier’ finish.
The hemp/silk (60%/40%) range is available in 7 shades
There are some talented people in Perth that you may want to check out for your wedding preparations.
Some vendors are affordable for most and some are probably only for the finance-blessed.
I must start with a photographer I stumbled across during my own wedding preparations earlier this year (2008). Her name is Samm Blake. I’m sure it’s the post-work filters she uses that make her ‘art’ exceptional. Her blog is a good place to check out her work; http://sammblakeblog.com/category/wedding-photography/
Unfortunately for some, Samm fits into the splurge category.No comments
This is the first post to my new blog.
It really is quite thrilling to have worked out how to install the code and files etc etc. The net never ceases to marvel.
Anyway, this blog is here to share conversation on sustainable fashion and fabrics, wedding party fashion and wedding tips and tricks.
I’ll share links and sites with great dresses for your inspiration as well as recent client work.
So here we go and feel free to leave comments and useful tit-bits!No comments
