After textiles, fashion designer Jenefer Pleadwell’s second love is growing food, but her desire to be connected with the land can even be seen through her line as all the fabrics used are hand-dyed natural fibres.

 

Pleadwell embroiders these natural fibres to create her wearables with what she describes as their “emphasis on bold surface design.” Some of her pieces have gone through as many as four dye baths to attain the colour layers she desires, plus she makes all her own buttons from clay. She uses mostly wool and silk which are her favourites “because they dye so beautifully.”

 

Her vision for twofolds textiles was, “to make unique pieces in the artisan tradition that allow me to experiment with dyeing and surface design technique,” she says. “My work is inspired by the tension that exists between tradition and innovation, and the desire to educate and inform people about how cloth is made.”

 

However, when Pleadwell is not in the studio she works full-time for local farmers’ markets, which allows her to fulfill her longing to connect more with the land. “I don##Q##t currently have access to a garden space,” she says, “so working at the markets allows me to contribute in some part to building a local food system.”

 

Born in Peterborough, Ont., in 1976, Pleadwell studied textile arts at Capilano University in North Vancouver from 2001 to 2003 before studying weaving at Place des Arts in Coquitlam in 2006.

Now for something more carefree, this outfit is a far step away from the more refined and structured or tough and grungy looks reviewed over the past few weeks. Cute and earthy, it screams flower child, yet does so with such careful style that it is impossible to think its composition was an accident
The supernatural essence starts with the earth-toned ankle boots. Flat boots ground an outfit, and being that these are so sweet and sprite-like, they give the look an extra sense of magic. Sheer tights add sparkle and a little mystery. As sheer is quite popular this season, the look gives a nod to the runway, without being too brash.
