Tammam Turns Ten

On 11th September 2007 the Tammam label launched – a catwalk show and crazy party (we were young back then!) with biodynamic champagne and organic chocolate, and a performance from the most brilliant Mr Solo, enthralled our guests.

The last ten years have been a fabulous rollercoaster ride, trying to convince the fashion industry to be more ethical, sustainable, cruelty free and ecological.

“Saving the world  in style”

was our motto from the start, and that’s what we’ve spent the last decade doing. Just look at where the fashion industry is now, compared to ten years ago. Massive corporations have sustainability strategies, top designers are using eco materials and thousands of people have started asking “who made my clothes?”.

 

Monday 11th we’ll be celebrating at the Tammam atelier and showroom in Bloomsbury.

10 year anni invite

Don’t forget  – If there has to be a victim in fashion, let it be you….

 

Yours in a decade of decadence, glamour and conscious creativity

Kick start a collaboration

Dahlings,

Apologies for being away for so long, I have had a lot of projects simmering and am now ready to serve one up!

I have been working with renowned contemporary artist Mikey Georgeson on an amazing “wearable art” peace silk project.

Here we are contemplating, and waiting for a magic moth – watch the video at the top of the kickstarter campaign to see more….

 Take a look at our Kickstarter campaign here

This is all part of my mission to revere the humble silk moth. Our ultimate goal is to create a fabric from a found silk supply chain, this means any silk used would be a natural / wild waste product and not from a captive animal. I’ll be working with a group of incredible hand weavers to hand loom the cloth that will then be made into a couture gown, ready for Mikey to paint.

The modern answer to Dali and Schiaparelli, with a sustainable and social justice message… who shall we get to be our Wallis Simpson?!

I hope you like it and will help us, and the moths, by backing our project on Kickstarter.

Yours in wearable art
