I have no idea what fibre this is, except for the silk yarn I used for the crochet trim, so the result could be interesting! Thinking of using Tasmanian blackwood leaves in the dyepot; I also collected blackberry, eucalyptus (2 types) and Tasmanian dogwood leaves this afternoon for the eco printing.
I’m very excited to be able to share this at last – it’s been so hard to keep the finished dress a secret …
Here is the much-anticipated reveal of the Miss Universe Australia dress made by couturier Rudolf Ramseyer, using fabric which I eco dyed at his request. I am absolutely thrilled with what he’s done with it, and how beautiful it looks worn by Tasmanian entrant Stephanie King. [Photos by Rudolf Ramseyer; silk chiffon from Ruche Fabrics]
Lovely photos by Peter Troode of a great evening – the exhibition launch and open mike night at Gone Rustic Studio and Gallery were enjoyed by everyone, judging by all the happy faces! Delicious food provided by River and Willow of Abundant Soul, St Marys.
