That sounds great Mallory. I would love to set up a link between NC State and Grays School at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. I believe this sort of international co-operation is the way forward.
By thw way I have happy memories of my stay with friends at Flatbranch, Harnet County a few years ago.. I know what southern hospitality is
Hi Mallory, last year I collaborated on a Japanese-themed fashion project with Grays Shool of Art, Aberdeen, Scotland - The Four Seasons. I gave them the tartans I designed. and they produced outfits as coats rather than dresses. It was very successful and the Japanese Consul General has organised a special show in October. This years theme will be 'Daughters of the Republic' and Im donating the North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey and Indiana State tartans. The brief will hint at Scarlett O'Hara, pioneers of the west, etc.
To keep it sensible on the catwalk I 'll supply pleated tartan skirts tammies scarves etc as I did with The Four Seasons. This is ethically-produced, eco-friendly, sustainable design at its best, but is also uniquely appropriate and has identity. Do you have any advice and are you interested in some form of collaboration?
