The Youth Project: Part Three

It’s officially feeling like Summer as we reveal Hannah’s completed Youth Project design. This incredibly vibrant, tiered midi dress made from unique Indian Batik is the dress we all want coming into the hotter season.

 

Named after the ‘Holi’ festival in India the dress embodies just that, a celebration of colour, love and joy.

 

Take a closer look for yourself and prepare to pre-order or drop into the boutique as this beauty will hit the Tengdahl racks very soon!

The Youth Project: Part One

 

Running a fashion label for almost three decades doesn't come without an abundance of inspiration and influence. Julie has found that an inclusive working environment fuels her ideas and solidifies her final products.

 

 

Hannah certainly plays a role in how each collection comes to life. Her position as assistant sample maker means she is an integral part of the production and technical elements of the design. From concept, design, sampling, through to final production, Hannah knows exactly what it takes to create a Tengdahl garment. 

 

 

The Youth Project is about finding a youthful perspective and encouraging creativity in our bespoke workplace.

On this journey Hannah will be choosing her own textiles, producing her designs and manufacturing the garments as a collaborative journey with Julie and the Tengdahl team, available this Summer.

 

Spring Racing Ready

 

Before the holiday season begins there's still one more thing we need to tick off our social calendars for 2018. The spirit of Spring Racing Carnival already has us buzzing, but the most sartorially inspired events are yet to come. It's our favourite time of the year to experiment with colour or go bold with a monochrome palette.

 

Known for its traditional 'black & white' dress code, Derby Day is a day to be unique. Combining tulle and lace textures is a great way to create interest for your outfit.

Fashion Revolution Week: A Step Closer to Sustainability

Sustainability is slowly becoming a huge buzz word in the fashion world. Following the Rana Plaza tragedy of 2013 - where a building in Bangladesh collapsed with thousands of garment workers inside - a whole new revolution has begun. A Fashion Revolution. This movement is a global push to incite a real and dramatic change in the way our clothes are produced and consumed, and also in the way we think about fashion. Whilst fast fashion is not yet something of the past, people are finally starting to ask questions about how their clothes are being produced and consumed - a step in the right direction.
