I’m not in the business of fame. But I have to admit, I was blown away when the Hollywood actress Adina Porter wore a Green Embassy garment for a red carpet event in LA late last year.
It was a whirlwind last week in Vancouver and I have just now caught my breath enough to post about what happened. This is just a quick ‘taste’ of what I got up to – there is plenty more, trust me!
Connecting to Canada
Everything about our society is connected to land.
My latest series of textile artwork explores and interrogates this connection.
My designs are understood in the fashion community as ‘wearable art.’ And lately I’ve been venturing into jewellery making – another kind of wearable art.
Not everyone recognises jewellery making as an artform. Jewellery has become tied to its monetary value and is usually recognised simply as a commodity, with diamonds generally considered the highest expression of jewellery.
I’ve been inspired since creating the Mrs Australia gown a few weeks ago and I’ve been exploring the use of healing stones and semi-precious gems in my designs!
What does ‘Zero Waste Policy’ really mean?
For me, it means just that: zero waste.
As one of the eco-fashion industry’s up-and-coming ’emerging designers’, I love to celebrate the industry’s wins. Don’t get me wrong. I do.
But even in the short time since Green Embassy’s launch, I’ve seen enough greenwashing around to make me want to dedicate a blog to it! So I thought it’d be worthwhile to play my part as artist, creator, designer – and educator – to reinforce what truly being green looks like. Or doesn’t look like, as the case may be. So here goes.
PINCH…PINCH…PINCH…that’s just me pinching myself because UK Vogue has featured the entire latest Green Embassy Collection in its latest edition!
It’s possible for dreams to come true!
As an artist and designer who honours the integrity of sustainable and certified organic textiles and fashion, the last few months have been an unbelievably amazing time for my baby – Green Embassy.
I’m delighted to announce that 5% of Green Embassy profits will now be donated to a charity that I absolutely love – the Gabby Wild Foundation.
Zuhal Kuvan-Mills, the WA-based artist-designer of Atelier Zuhal, has announced the launch of her second organically certified label – this time in the world of eco-sustainable fashion.
