What a lovely idea.

 I never really got the whole blog thing.  

But now I'm starting to 
like it
which also means 
spending time to check out other peoples blogs.
 I recently stumbled across a blog call A Disorganised Fashion, then discovered to my delight that Leah, from Milly Sleeping was the owner of this blog.  Then, the other day I was even more stoked to find the MüCKE shirtDRESS illustrated on A Disorganised Fashion.  Leah is clearly very clever with words and pictures.  On top of that she's been sketching for a great cause, froctober.  Haven't heard of it?  Neither had I.  Check it out here

You can purchase this pic or any of the other frocks Leah has sketched, for just $10. 
Head to her site for details.
Thanks Leah.

Sustainability at its best

Emma Grace Treasury workshop
The Treasury is a jewellery "fix-it- remake it- recreate it-preserve it- don't throw it out!" workshop being run this weekend by the clever and talented jeweller, Emma Grace.  I've also been invited along this weekend to share some ideas and inspirations on adapting old things into new things.  

In Emma's words, this it what the workshops are all about:
"It is an opportunity to re-connect with the idea of community; to exchange skills, materials, thoughts and inspiration. Participants will sit around the table with plates of food and tattered jewellery piled high and leave at the end of the day with a bundle of ‘new’ jewellery and a bunch of new friends.

The Treasury is about sustainable fashion – moving away from ‘throw-away culture’ and leading back towards the way we used to live; where if something broke, you fixed it, and if it got old, you made it into something new."

Wow.  I love it.  Come join us!
Tix are $20. Sunday 31st Oct, 2pm-4.30pm. RSVP here to get involved!

a part of the process

On Tuesday, screen printing in the outdoors turned into a quick dash and scurry inside as the droplets started falling.  Oops!  At least its water-based ink I'm using and not a great deal of accuracy is required, its just the texture I'm after for the screen printed t-laces you can see below.
Screen printing on the ironing board!
Drying the printed tees

Cut, stretched and bound.  Just the labeling to go.
I've been seeing a few similar accessories to the t-lace of late...In fact they seem to be everywhere, but largely not created from recycled materials.  Let me assure you that MüCKE is a design label (ie. I design solutions, I don't follow fashion) and that the t-lace was created out of an explorative process, over 4 years ago.  In the coming weeks I'll post some pics and give you more on the background of the MüCKE t-lace.  For now, feel free to browse a selection of them for sale here.
