INSPIRATION: Creation 4.0

5.3.11

With the effects of the recession, I think a few things that were almost forgotten surfaced from such an internationally impactful time. One of which was the fact that more people seemed to be showing their interest in handmade goods.


Handmade treasures and giftables from the heart, to me, are always something to look forward to whether receiving or creating. Especially if it's a versatile garment or an item that may be transformed into three, four, or even five varied looks.

For the past couple of years, we have seen the rise of Eco-chic apparel, independent avant-garde designers, and the awareness of budget fashion with a rapidly infused comeback into diverse closets all around the world (and NOT just for the budget fashionista).


So, you can understand my passion and appreciation for this video when I came across it some time ago. Dara Frydman, the Canadian designer and owner behind Dara Dot Designsa sweet understated brand creates unique accessories from materials that include bamboo, organic cotton, and leather (amongst others). She also has how-to photos for the consumer in case a personal styling instruction is needed. 

Sometimes you just cannot have enough scarves, (especially if you wear them as much as I do) therefore one needs an array of styles to wear with daily outfits. If you are in the area, you may catch Dara at the one-of-a-kind Spring show in Toronto!  Stay tuned for upcoming additions to the new Spring & Summer accessories line at: www.DaraDotDesigns.com  

*Take a look at these particular styles, the ruffled one is a personal favourite!
