Special Commissions and Collaborations

Emma was delighted to receive a commission to make two bespoke bags for the dynamic team of eco-fashion stylists at Melbourne's 'Fashion By Foot'. Donna and Briar wanted a strong and beautiful bag which they could comfortably carry on their 4 hour fashion walking tours. Emma crafted their bags from upcycled premium black linen (which she'd saved from landfill, when an interiors store was closing down). The bags were trimmed in Fashion By Foot's iconic colours of tangerine/living coral and fuscia. Donna and Briar then had their logo embroidered on the front, to highlight their distinctive brand. And of course DEED bags' two large internal pockets were sewn into both bags - allowing Donna and Briar to easily carry a water flask and phone/ wallet along with their jackets and umbrella....all the essentials needed for Melbourne weather!
It was such a delight to work with Donna and Briar, and I'm sure you'll agree that they look fabulous with their DEED bags! If you would like to sample one of their Melbourne, Fitzroy or Brunswick Walking Tours, and discover independent, exciting and ethical designers, please do go to their website: www.fashionbyfoot.com I can highly recommend a fabulous fashion day out
