I just wanted to drop a line and introduce Offset Warehouse.
Launching in September, Offset Warehouse will retail a huge amount of ethical fabrics - Perfect for your students!
Please do get in touch if you'd like to arrange a time we could come in and show you our range of ethical fabrics: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're also currently taking bookings for our lectures covering all sorts of ethical topics for the next academic year (if your budget allows!).
Hello Jane, please do contact us at Panchachuli U.K. if you think your students would like to view our range of fabrics which are hand dyed, spun and woven in Lambswool, Cashmere, Nettle and Oak Silk. Available in over 37 ISO free or vegetable dyes and made by the Women Weavers of Kumaon co-operative. Best wishes , Mary . email@example.com 07805758688
Hello Jane, as an architect Ive worked on projects with students for many years but ve just finished my first venture into the world of fashion: a live fashion project with Gray's School of Art, Robert Gordon University ,culminating in a very successful launch last Thursday. I supplied cloth in four designs targetted at the Japanese market along with background notes. You can see some of the results on the BBC website at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/8033431.stm and www.pressandjournal.co.uk/Article.aspx/1200566. There was a lot of media attention including GMTV, STV and BBC. Altogether there were about 20 outfits. Students on the fashon management course also produced related advertising and promortional material. The outfits will go to Nagasaki in September as part of a 'Four Seasons' fashion show and on to San Francisco and Cape Town next year and all outfits will be posted on our website along with full attributions.
I also worked with a group of African designer/dressmakers for the launch of 'tartans for Africa' at Strathclyde University last November. You can see some of the images on my profile.
I have one or two interesting ideas for other live fashion projects if you are interested.
