Sublime Sample Sale

Two posts in a week?! Not quite, our lovely intern from glamorous LA has written a note about our pop up designer sample sale this weekend for you. See you there! Ms T

 

Over to Anabel

 

It’s an exciting time for us here at Tammam as we gear up for our infamous quarterly eco-friendly fashion sample sale.  This weekend, we are opening our doors to showcase our work as well as the work of other London-based sustainable designers at up to 80% off of retail prices. Come by and visit!

One label that immediately caught my eye is Nancy Dee, a women’s wear line that is designed and made in Britain.

Nancy Dee combines an ethical philosophy and a focus on style to create versatile pieces that go seamlessly from day to night and season to season.

Nancy Dee use renewable natural resources – like soya, bamboo and organic cotton – as well as upcycled materials that would have otherwise been disposed of in landfills to responsibly produce pieces that have a minimal environmental impact.

Consulates, Catwalks and Turkish delights

Earlier this month I was whisked off to the fabulous city of Istanbul for a whistlestop 3 day extravaganza with the Great Britain Campaign.

Despite the gloomy weather when we were there Istanbul really is quite beautiful.

Harvey Nics, had erected an enormous tent in our honour, to house the “Great” catwalk show and after an excruciating taxi journey in Istanbul’s horrendous traffic, taking over and hour and a half (and being told on arrival the metro is 3 stops and takes 10 minutes – yet another reason to be eco) we piled out of our cab disheveled and worn to be pushed down a red carpet and papped by the Turkish press outside the Kanyon shopping centre.

Straight through to the tent we were ushered, and seated to watch our designs descent down the catwalk along with Harvey Nichols designer brands such as Alexander McQueen and Lanvin.

Then down the catwalk I went, with the 4 other British designers, applauded by a crowd of Turkish fashionistas, British consulate staff and VIPs including the utterly glamorous Princess Michael of Kent.

Read more about my Istanbul adventure on Ethical Hedonist later this week and check out my (slightly edited) round up of the best of London Fashion Week too for my new role as guest blogger at ethical-hedonist.com

Yours in Turkish delight
