My creative space


This week I’ve had a bit of a run on skirts .  I love skirts. The mosaic skirts are made from linen with hand stitching as a feature.  The rust skirt is made from Chinese silk  gathered during my travels in Bali.

Vicarious Travel

Most of the fabric I use I have collected while travelling.  Brocade from Marrakesh become bags, linen from Udaipur become mosaic skirts,  upholstery fabric from Tuscany finds its way into garments, silk from Singapore; scarves.  So when I create  these things I relive the pleasure of the souks, the  open air markets and narrow back streets. Revisiting the  tastes, sights, smells and hum of the people. I become attached to what I create and sometimes feel sad when it leaves me. Meeting the person who buys it makes it easier and many of my clients purchase things to take on their travels.  So in some strange way I get to vicariously experience their travel as I imagine my skirts under the Eiffel Tower, a scarf in Africa and a wrap in the snow fields of America.  I always ask for photos and some do.  I even thought of starting a Lulu Tissu photo challenge where my clients can send me a photo of them wearing one of my creations in an iconic location.  I could offer a prize for the best photo….. something to think about.

Linen Hats for Summer

My berets were so popular in winter I thought I would carry the theme through summer with a range of linen hats.  Crazy or not what are your thoughts?

Summer 2011/2012 collection

I really feel this week I have had a break through.  Creating things to sell at a summer market is new for me and whilst I still believe the scarves will sell as Xmas presents I really needed something else.
