POP UP SHOP: PURE MAGNOLIA

About the Designer + Dresses: Patty Nayel is the designer behind Pure Magnolia. Her gowns are handmade in Vancouver, Canada using sustainable fabrics. The dresses are made with European laces, Indian silks, organic cottons, vintage and recycled fabrics. Adrienna is the knowledgeable one when it comes to fabrics + textiles, so I must say it was really quite interesting reading through Pure Magnolia's detailed page about the fabrics they use in their gowns and I just had to share some interesting tidbits of what I learned about what "sustainable fabrics" really means. The Silk Chiffon they use is reclaimed, from high end lingerie manufacturing companies scrap bit's that are leftover. These pieces are swept up, attached together or used in smaller bits to add texture or volume in a gown. The Dupioni Silk Organza that they use is a special kind that is made from breeder cocoons... meaning the little silk worms get to escape and live as a moth. Whoa, see... isn't this interesting? Or maybe it's just me. I guess I am just fascinated by learning about this kind of thing. Anyway moving on... their Silk Dupioni fabric also has an interesting story behind it. It is produced in India on a family farm that uses a sustainable method to dye the fabric. There is a lot of water used when dying fabrics; however, this family has developed a method of purifying the water so that they can re-use the water afterwards to irrigate their fields. All in all, these dresses are pretty fantastic and gorgeous and we are so excited to have them at Ivory + Beau!!!
