Local designer, Janet has a taste for glamour, and it shows in the elegantly austere caplets & evening bags she creates. She says, “I’ve been visiting Britex since I was a young girl and have dreamt of designing with their incredible fabrics. This year I was able to produce my new endeavor–hand-sewn silk mini capes with scarves, scarves and cultured pearl bags and belts. Britex has supplied all the fabrics and notions primarily online. I couldn’t have done this collection without Avery’s help not only shipping to my various seamstress, but also with advice. I’m planning on expanding this into a larger collection and possibly offer it wholesale. Each time I visit Britex online or in the store I become overwhelmed with the beautiful fabrics and like an addict want to buy them all! My creativity explodes on the first floor where the silks are located—just ask James, the sales associate! My collection is made entirely in San Francisco and I owe credit to my pearl weaver, Atelier & my seamstress, Kika.” Sigh!
