Wearable Art

“Art you can wear”

This month marks 4 years since I’d developed the original design of the 365-day dress for Lola Starr, and with that I wanted to reinvent the dress. The 365-day dress is designed to take your little ones through all four seasons.

Lola Starr’s children’s wear has always been about fun fashion for children, expressing themselves while making independent fashion choices, through colours, textures and fabrics with our unique sleeve changes.

Lola and I felt that we wanted to add to the original design and make more unique pieces of clothing. Using Lola’s face; the silhouette that can be seen across our range of organic cotton t-shirts. We had this printed in vinyl onto the dress and experimented with fabric paints and washing techniques.

With us wanting to make statement pieces of wearable art, I approached a good friend of mine, Wren who is a Liverpool based, emerging contemporary artist, and asked if she’d like to collaborate. We discussed the fact that the silhouette was blowing out messages like on the t-shirts, and we were excited to see what Wren produced. wearable art in pink

Wren’s work is fantastic, experimenting with different styles and mediums. Her art is her therapy and helps her on her spiritual journey.

 

 

 

We absolutely LOVE how these pieces of wearable art have turned out. They launch on June 16th and will be made to order. Available from age 4-10 the shift style dresses are a loose and easy fit, with detachable sleeves. No two pieces will be the same, these pieces are individually designed, if your little one likes something different then this is the dress for them.

Our Wearable art is not constricted to demands or trends of the marketplace. We feel and follow a need for freedom for expression in the way we experiment with different types of materials and techniques, a blend of expression and slow fashion.

Designed and made ethically in the UK
