  • Silk Capelet and Pearled Evening Bag - Deleuse

    December 11, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    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!
