New Fabrics for 2014

After a brilliant holiday in Indonesia and Malaysia I’m almost home to start on 2014 tutus. I’ve spent a lovely peaceful day by the pool at my brother’s house in Perth uploading photos and checking emails then I’m off home tomorrow. Here are some photos of the lovely fabrics I picked up in beautiful Surabaya. I can’t wait to work with clients to come up with some artisan tutus.

I can see this black, red and gold lace in a Spanish tutu

chantilly lace

Lovely chantilly lace adds a lightness to a tutu or can be used as a base for more embellishment
