Elizabeth V

This was a lovely project!

Working with Helen Heithersay to create a textile design for beautiful silk lingerie and loungewear for South Australian based company Elizabeth V. The fabric was digitally printed by Frankie and Swiss in Melbourne.

Here is a video of the Elizabeth V runway at the Adelaide Fashion Festival 2016, with the  design looking fabulous on the garments and as a dramatic backdrop.

Les Indiennes-New York

Inspirational textile designer Mary Bergtold Mulcahy owns and runs Les Indiennes in New York. She sources printed textiles from traditional craftsmen in India. Yet despite the growth of her business, she says the production of her fabric doesn’t use any electricity in the village where it is made, create any pollution or disrupt the traditional way of life. Les Indiennes is also a Fair Trade employer for more than 50 families.

Most of the designs are traditional but Mary has created some beautiful modern interpretations.
