Milena Silvano S/S 2013


Have you seen this lookbook for Milena Silvano's spring/summer 2013 collection?  The designer started her eponymous line in 2010 but I am just discovering her work.  She is based in rural England, grows and forages dye plant to use on her fabrics and takes field trips to faraway places such as India to work with local artisans on techniques like block printing.  The result is a collection that truly has a worldly, artisanal feel.  You can follow her adventures on her blog.  I loved seeing the process of a large swath of fabric from its beginnings being printed, dyed and finally turned into a wearable dress.
