Fabric quality is such an important element in producing a pleasing and long-lasting product. The average consumer does not necessarily know the technical terms for different types of fabric, but she knows good fabric when she sees and feels it.
My aspirations in this area, for my toddler girls' line
, are high. One aspect of high-quality knit fabrics is that striped knits are yarn-dyed rather than printed.
Having a yarn-dyed fabric… Continue

If you are one, you know what it stands for: Work-At-Home Mom. (As if moms who stay home with their children without pursuing a career are not
working??) At any rate, as Pixyworld
's designer, I am one.
Now, it's interesting to me that we have a term
for this now, as if being a mom pursuing a career from home were a brand new phenomenon. As far as I can see, most moms throughout the centuries have been WAHMs.
Take the… Continue

"The dresses are inspired by the work of Madam Gres and 1920's fashion, The 1950's silhouette of a big- draped back, Japanese jewelery and the A -symmetric cut."
My Spring Summer collection is a dress driven one.
The dresses are inspired by the work of Madam Gres and 1920's fashion, the 1950's silhouette of a big- draped back, Japanese jewelery and the A -symmetric cut.
While working on the collection I continued to explore the dialogue between front and back in a garment:… Continue

The ability to put images on clothing has opened up new vistas of fun and personal expression, both for adults and children. Printed fabrics and printed tee-shirts are so ubiquitous now that we take them for granted. But my favorites, especially for children's clothing
, are embroidery and applique -- two methods that give an image a special texture and style that really makes it pop.… Continue

Effortless-Olsen-alert, when did "throw-it on chic" become so calculated?
Since moving to Australia
my wardrobe has had to step up a gear. Or at least my standards have shifted upwards to dizzying heights. Previously I could normally be appeased by generic tops for £30 that will last a season or so. These days I want quality leather, glass smooth cashmere, class, elegance and a style statement all in one piece. Am I expecting too much… Continue

Fashion is an ongoing cycle; It revolves around period after period, like earth rounds the sun. Like - Spring to summer, Summer to fall, fall to winter and again winter to spring. In the same way, fashion always repeats their cycle. Buying patterns change and come back after certain period of time.
Certainly it repeats, but comes back with little changes. Certain addition or cancellation of artwork, stitching details, fabric construction/count details, little different design pattern. But… Continue

As much as I love Mary Gelhar's The Fashion Designer Survival Guide
