Hello around the world. How are you?
We have been soooo busy. So busy that we didn’t have time to blog.
The Lifestyle Fair (Livsstilsmessen) is this Sunday and we have a few things ready for the fashion show. We have been working our butts off to get them ready and we are quite happy with the products.
They are all made from our “trash”. Our trash is not filthy or disgusting but is a big bunch of fabric scraps, beautiful, colorful leftovers from past projects or used clothing. We produce heaps of these lovely little corners and strips and always felt bad about throwing them away. Someone spent time and resources in producing the cotton, then someone else in a mill wove the cotton into fabric, then came the dyeing process and all the environmental implications, after that the fabric was shipped, cut, sewn and distributed to shops. Should all this work have been in vain if garments fall out of style? Are jeans unusable if the knees are ripped? Does unrepairable mean, unusable?
Why throw away if you can repair? Why not restyle to fit current style? Why not patch up jeans and create a new style? Why not cut broken garments in to smaller pieces and use them for patchwork?
We also have to mention our wonderful helpers. This week we had help for all our planned projects and what a huge help it was. Awesome people stepped up and lent a hand in cutting, sewing, stuffing and bringing good mood to the shop.
Here is a big THANK YOU to Charlotte, Vibeke and Amela.
We are very excited to show you all the results on Sunday. There will be 2 fashions show runs during the fair. The first is at 12:00 and the last is at 14:00. We can’t wait!!!
In other news:
This week we had a great meeting with 2 funny, kind and very smart people: Kerstin Molsted and Torsten Bo Jørgensen.
They are helping us plan something new…something absolutely daring and super exciting. We can’t tell you much more, since this is only an idea so far. Be assured, you’ll be informed as our idea matures into a real plan. We might even need your help.
Be good, be happy, be kind.
Hugs and Kisses
Mia & Annie
