Current Position & Progress

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.

Stay Wunderful

WUNDERBLAZE is Moving

WUNDERBLAZE have had a good couple of months at Folksy but I have made the decision to move to Etsy. It was not an easy decision it involved a lot of weighing the pros and cons but in the end the way in which Etsy is integrated into various social platforms made it come out on top for me. I would still recommend Folksy however as a buying and selling platform it has many great features and is easy to use.

Our etsy store is up and running with our original designs still in stock so come and visit us in our new home on Etsy.

The 2016 Design Challenge

On my current masters I have been working with more indepthly focused upon materials in association to intimate apparel, im hoping to improve not only my application of design and making, through my materiality modules, but also my practice and execution, through my Business of design modules, and also to increase my understanding of user engagement and social cultural aspects of purchasing through terchnonatures.

So this year I have decided to investigate, possible new, more sustainable and environmentally friendly fabrics, with the hope of developing a 100% sustainable, ethical, biodegradable and environmentally friendly range of intimates and loungewear in the near future.

In light of environmental impact in relation to western consumerist culture I have challenged myself to use the fabric that, as a sewer, I have acquired and thought too beautiful to use, and to combine it with end of roll or cut offs from haberdasheries and other companies. I want to retrain my brain to use the fabric I buy and not be so precious and to think about what i purchase and the production and travel involved within it. I already see that there will be various challenges involved but I think that they will all be able to be overcome by supplementation and innovation.

So in short the challenge is to not buy any fabric off the roll and to only buy a maximum of 2 offcut fabrics a month. *

 I am rather excited to see how this challenge will shape WUNDERBLAZE this year and to rediscover all the fabulous fabrics and materials I have acquired and not used.

*This challenge does not relate to my academic research
