  • The Winner Is... A Purple Crepe Satin Blazer

    June 8, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Winner PML photo for blog
    Greetings,
    My name is Tesha Williams-Muhammad. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.  I am married and have four boys.  I have been designing, according to my mother, from birth.  From my prom dress to a magnificent gala, I have always designed my dress or outfits to wear.  My inspiration right now comes from the search for balance in raising my Autistic son and everything I contact in the Universe, spiritually, mentally, morally, physically and financially. For example, I can take a simple walk through an open field and just because I appreciate it, my next dress will have an array of green colors, different textures with gold notions. That is why I love Britex Fabrics and notions.  Britex helps my visions leap into fruition.  Also, when I don't have vision, I can count on the Britex environment with its very large array of colors and textures to create the next new and beautiful piece for the world to enjoy.  I am a designer and the world is my Tapestry.

     

    Tesha is the winner of 2 free tickets to our fall fashion show PROJKT Maiden Lane, featuring Emily Payne, presenting her children's line "Devon Rose" and introducing her new unisex outerwear collection CTRL with Nicky Lifestyles, Richard Hallmarq, Kini Zamora (Project Runway) and Rey Ortiz (Under the Gunn) with San Francisco ARTist: Michael Covington (collaborative pieces with Emily Payne)
    and DJ Keith Kraft

We delight in traipsing about to find you the most chic Italian silks, natty necktie silks, brilliant jacquard silks, and airy sheer silk chiffons.

    "He dyed the fabrics himself and, with the help of volunteers, stitched together eight strips of brilliant color into a huge banner that spoke volumes: hot pink stood for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for the sun, green for nature, turquoise blue for art, indigo for harmony and violet for spirit."

  • We Go Bananas Over Our Customers

    May 31, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Hi Britex,
    Last week, my Mom and I came to Britex Fabrics in San Francisco (my first trip) and snagged up some Tommy Bahama banana upholstery (say that three times fast).
    I identify as a novice, but my mother is a seasoned seamstress and enthusiastically agreed to fabric hunt with me. I had an amazing time taking the "top down" approach through each floor of the store, starting at the fourth floor, and ending on the main floor of the store.
    The inspiration here was the Dolce & Gabbana look we saw a block over in their window; with large tropical prints on a classic silhouette. We admired their attention to detail in matching up their panels, but agreed that it would not be a healthy choice for my sanity to attempt such a feat in my first rodeo.

    Thank you for the wonderful experience,

    lace 1

    Our customer Tawny recently purchased some exquisite French lace which will become her wedding dress. Tawny's cousin Jessie Thomason is the person who gets the credit for bringing Tawny's design concept to life.  These photos are of the work in progress of what will eventually become her dress. It is actually a lace romper with a removable chiffon skirt. This concept for a wedding dress is so unique, that we just couldn't resist showing you.
