Sydney Design Festival Workshop

As some of you may know, Transparent Seams and ALAS recently ran a workshop at the Gaffa Gallery as part of Sydney Design Festival. It was an incredibly fun and inspiring day, everyone took on ambitious projects and created a range of very wearable pieces! We had a great group of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and probably the most enjoyable part was seeing all the different creative approaches unfold. Rumours are we might be hosting another one soon!


A little update

Some of you may have been wondering why there was a lull in regular posts...The hiatus was caused by an impromptu visit to London. My sleepwear label ALAS won a category of the Ethical Fashion Forums Innovation Awards. The EFF are doing amazing things for the Ethical fashion movement, you can check them out here.

While my partner Betony and I spent most of the time running around to meetings, reuniting ourselves with our favourite old haunts and absorbing as much information as we could, I also managed to interview a few designers and make some great contacts for some exciting Transparent Seams articles! So stay tuned..
