As the year progresses so to has the amount and intensity of work, my research focusses have left little time for new posts though I am excited for the new development that doing this course has, and is, allowing me to explore which I am certain will improve the sustainable design, manufacture and packaging, among other areas. It has allowed me to more indepthly understand fabrics and their properties and through this to develop a greater knowledge of the ecologies of designated eco-fabrics and components which has opened my eyes to the myths surrounding some and the not widely known properties of others.
As I have already mentioned my studies are becoming very intense and due to this I will posting less regularly than usual, though the store will be open and functioning as usual so feel free to have a look at the WUNDERBLAZE Store . There are new designs waiting to be added once some of the current stock is sold to make space; bold reds, sparkle harness and multicolored lace delights are waiting in the wings. In the near future I am also planning to start selling the hand knitted designs I have been saving and some men’s briefs and loungewear.
My two main current projects are exploring sustainable and environmentally conscious dying in relation to lingerie and I am also exploring, and aiming to create, a sustainable toolkit allowing your to make your own wool. That is just a brief break down i what i am looking into in addition to some freelance consultancy work.
