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.

black, red and gold spanish style lace
I can see this black, red and gold lace in a Spanish tutu
blue french lace
Baby blue beaded french lace
chantilly lace
Lovely chantilly lace adds a lightness to a tutu or can be used as a base for more embellishment
copper gold panelled lace
These panels will look fabulous around a skirt plate
coral and red french lace
This coral and red french lace was quite a find.
dark gold sequin lace
I love this light embroidered net with tiny little sequins. I bought a few colours because it will be very adaptable.
delicat copper lace with tiny sequins
Lovely, delicate copper lace with tiny sequins
green and gold corded lace
I’m hoping this will work for my lime and lemon tutu after the original fabric was sold out
light gold panelled lace
More panelled lace but this time in a lighter gold.
olive and brown lace
Another Spanish tutu I think with some unusual colours
pink french lace
Pretty beaded french lace
plum french lace
This is a \n exquisite plum coloured french lace with iridescent black beading.
selection of chantilly laces
What’s the collective name for chantilly lace … a swathe?
silver white embroidered lace
Elegant silver white embroidered lace
white sequin lace
Lovely light lace which will be very versatile.

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
