Slow Couture Remix

Le Croisic, France
Handcrafted from head to toe! There is a special feeling of empowerment when wearing an outfit made entirely out of hand. To circumvent mass production, homogeneous standardization and inhumane outsourcing conditions is for me, however small the scale, moral agency at its rawest.
Hand stitched and embellished Alabama Chanin maxi babydoll dress, handknit cashmere bolero, hand rolled and stitched silk roses, handcrafted leather gladiator sandals from Rondini (http://www.rondini.fr/)
Organic cotton jersey and Miyuki seed beads for the dress, cashmere wool for the bolero, Lanvin silk marquisette and silk organza for the headdress.
