Eco couture and up cycling

I have always cherished every scrap of fine fabric in the studio and enjoy up cycling vintage textiles. Here are some examples where a sustainable design approach, using collected remnants or ethical silks gives these unique pieces a real point of difference.

These photos were taken during a family holiday in the Caribbean. Thank you to Caroline, Jane and volunteer models Cara and Sharlee for helping make my island dream come true. I’m planning a further group of beach style wedding dresses using Fairtrade organic cottons and incorporating vintage textiles. My intention being that a cherished dress remains in the ‘eco brides’ wardrobe for future summers and holidays, becoming even more meaningful.

Studio custom projects like these are often available to buy or can be a starting point for your own green dress.

I have sourced a growing number of ethical fabrics and can also help to update and adjust a previously worn dress or vintage piece. Please contact me to discuss your ideas.
