  • Nima Shiraz Takes Britex to LA

    April 20, 2015 by Britex Fabrics

    For many years, Britex has had the honor of being a hotspot for fashion designer Nima Shiraz. We pile amazing fabrics and trims in his arms, send him on his way, and then pouf! He has transformed our items into breathtaking high fashion. This last month we have watched as Nima bought out an entire color of our Swarovski crystal collection, leather and velvet, and lace. And then, we found out what it was for. At the beginning of this month, there was a tribute concert for David Lynch and his foundation to teach Transcendental Meditation. And Nima was making a catsuit for one of the performers, the gorgeous Chrysta Bell.   CB-4   Continue Reading

    Happy Tartan Day from Britex Fabrics! Not only were we inspired by this kilt feature in last months San Francisco Magazine issue, but the awesome time-traveling-Scottish Highland show Outlander is back. And we couldn't be more thrilled, as so many of our products have been used in the costuming of this production. Thanks to costume designer, Terry Dresbach, you can see many of our luscious laces, buttons, silks, and more on the screen. So, honor the Scottish in you and come on down to peek at our wool plaids!

  • Cotton Asymmetrical Moto Jacket

    March 10, 2015 by Skirt as Top

    I’ve been intrigued by the moto jacket recently.  It’s one of those garments I’ve heard fans of the capsule wardrobe call an “essential.”  It pops up on Pinterest over skirts and jeans alike, and every time I see it I think that the woman wearing it looks fantastic, but I’d never even tried one on myself.
    Lately, I started thinking it might be the type of piece that I never knew I missed until I had one of my own.
