Big heart is bringing its first shipment in from South Africa. And we have found that there is the most amazing white 200TC 100% cotton waste in the workshop. I decided - this needs to be put to good use.
I have decided to add this to my production of my ever popular Molli Frock - sizes 1 to 5 years in the white waste. I have approached makers, creatives, sewers, artists from all over the world.
The dress is starting in South Africa with awsum creatives there. The idea is that you the creative take the dress as a blank canvas and embellish where ever your creative juices take you. The only thing I ask of you is to please document your making - in video and pictures the more the better - it is all about content, content, content. Each garment will be signed, dated and your Instagram details. A great way to spread our network and share by collaboration and frocking.
The South African garments will be finished in South Africa and added to the next inbound shipment. When my shipment arrives I will distribute the the blank white Molli Frock to the creatives in United Kingdom and rest of the world, these to be finished in November.
These frocks are not for sale at this point, will only be used as a collaborative network tool. Who knows where this journey will take us. I am looking at doing some exhibitions and am investigating children's charities with integrity.
Get your Instagram up and ready... and join us on this fantastic journey.
