A few months ago, when designing the FW19 Collection, I asked our followers on Instagram (@lights.of.all) what kind of fall/winter clothing they preferred; comfy cozy or some fancy chic for parties. It was VERY clear that everyone wanted the former.
I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of turtlenecks, I've never really liked the look on myself and so I was never planning on making any. However, since everyone specifically asked for turtlenecks, I had to give it a try.
Because the original idea didn't come from me, I didn't have a clear idea of what kind of...
Organic Cotton vs Cotton
If you didn't already know, on instagram @lights.of.all, I do informative little episodes of Sustainability school which is saved in our highlight reel. I decided to transcribe some of them onto our blog for those who would rather read than listen.

The Dress is made from a 100% Tencel lightweight fabric, which is actually leftover supply from the winter coats from FW17....
For our Third edition of A Closer Look, I decided to talk about the Robe Coat
A little sustainable fashion fact, Hemp is one of the most eco-friendly fibers because of how it is grown and produced (less water, pestisides, etc) and it's also naturaly antibacterial!
For this garment I used one of my favorite Hemp (55%) & Organic Cotton (45%) blend fabrics. I love this blend because both these fibers are really similar but they have slight little differences so by blending them together at almost equal values - we really get...
