In the Spotlight

In the Spotlight - Tuesday 16th November, 2010
With only 5 more sleeps until our Christmas Market we thought we would share with you the winner of our best dressed stand award from our launch market. So this week In the Spotlight is Carolyn Kohler Collection.

Carolyn Kohler Collection make stunning wearable art. With a background in fashion and a passion for colour, texture and design it was a natural progression for Carolyn to create wearable art pieces. Mother nature, in particular flowers, provide a never ending source of inspiration for her designs.

Many years in the fashion industry taught Carolyn that women desire natural fibres against their skin. Sadly, recent years have seen a huge increase in the use of synthetic fabrics and she is happy to support the move back to natural fibres. 

Carolyn’s designs are all original, handcrafted pieces that combine Australian merino with silk using traditional nuno felting techniques.

All embellishments used are also natural fibres and include mohair, alpaca, hemp and cotton as well as beading in timber, coconut and glass. Carolyn hand dyes all her fleece and silk making each piece completely unique. No two are the same. 

The wraps come with brooches that can be worn in various ways to suit the occasion or the individual style of the wearer.

You will see Carolyn Kohler Collection again at our Christmas market this Sunday from 10am – 2pm. And if you are planning a visit to her stand make sure your print off her market day discount coupon from our website.
