I am super excited that my good friend Zuhal Kuvan-Mills from the internationally recognised label Green Embassy which has graced the runways of London, Paris, Vancouver and more is supporting the Eco Fashion Runway at Hutt Winter Festival with a capsule artisan haute couture collection.
Green Embassy is created using handmade organic Australian alpaca, merino, silk and recycled natural fibres ensuring that each garment is beautifully unique. Each item is entirely hand crafted and hand dyed and the knits are made from hand-spun yarns.
Each clothing item in very collection is designed, knitted, spun, felted, stitched and embroidered from scratch by artist, designer and earth ambassador Zuhal Kuvan-Mills at her sun-drenched farm in the Western Australian bush. This ‘organic aesthetic’ brand offers multi-purpose garments which strike a fine balance between sophistication, sustainability and contemporary slow fashion.
Zuhal's eco-fashion items are 100% created by hand in Australia and certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards), the leading standard for quality assurance in organic textiles manufacturing worldwide.
Modern, minimalist, functional and alluring, her work is for the discerning consumer who values the beauty of hand-crafted things fashioned from earth-friendly methods of production.
This year Zuhal will present a capsule collection from the ‘’Ngoolark’’ Series (The Aboriginal Name of Western Australian Black Cockatoos). The inspiration for the collection has come from the Cockatoo being declared as an endangered species due rapid urbanisation of Perth and destruction of their natural habitat of bush. Created with recycled and up-cycled silk, to emphasise their fragility , beauty , embroidered with wool to create drawings to display their outstanding majestic looks.
