Dresses made of Dreams
After going to fashion school and making a couple collections for Nayade, I started considering where my textiles were coming from, the life span of the pieces, and waste of materials.
I stopped the clothing production for a whole year to figure out what I wanted to do with the brand, and then one night an awesome idea occurred to me: I could use vintage sarees from India to make unique dresses. They would be made of silk, which is not only compostable but a lovely material to have in contact with one's skin. Moreover, I'd be upcycling fabric that already has a past.
Since I visited India some years ago I wanted to work with the fabrics they make but without having the clothing look like something out of Indian folklore.
The first batch of dresses is now out and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. They look like they came out of a Russian princess closet.
