Just like that Summer 2019 is almost over, where did it go?

We didn’t even get to a lake like we wanted, or have more picnics in the park. The summer seems to have left without warning and left behind muggy grey skies.

So, what have we been up to if our summer adventures were not ticked off the to-do list?

We have been busy planning our new collection, ofcourse! The latest instalment from our namesake label will hopefully reach more sustainable fashion lovers whilst still adhering to our core values.

How you ask?

As you know we have crafted new designs from old vintage pieces before, we are now taking this one step further by creating fabric from vintage and second hand so as to make more than one garment and possibly more than one size. We are pretty excited, (and scared but mostly excited). So far, the sketches are done and we are getting ready to make magic happen with the fabric.

It has been a lot of work, requiring a lot of patience but we are sure it’s going to be worth it! Follow our Instagram for updates on the process and a sneak peek at the latest pieces from our Berlin studio.

Happy Monday

Behind the Scenes: Making new from old

As a vintage seller I am always searching for new pieces to add to the shop. As well as finding ready to list styles I often find pieces that have 'potential'. Sometimes there are dresses or skirts or tops that have the cutest print but the shape is not quite right (look more like tents than dresses) which I know that with some redesigning I can use the fabric from the old style to make a whole new one. We have been spending most of our time here at vic&lily HQ going through our 'potential' pile and deciding which new garment we'd like to make it into. It's been fun brainstorming ideas for the new lives we will be giving to each of the fabrics.

Here is a sneak peek at what we have been doing so far:
