About this circle skirt:
Found in perfect vintage condition, a custom crocheted table round transforms into the perfect skirt.
The waistband stands out as its most stunning component. On a routine jaunt to a thrift shop, a pile of antique textiles sat amidst other fabric donations. To my amazement, these fabrics dated to the turn of the century with origins pointing to central Asia. An act of love and art transformed them into a powerful waist statement. Also, a frog closure finishes the waistband. A side placket constructs from vintage textiles from Thailand. Therefore, the skirt honors Asian antiquity.
Sliptique follows the principled belief in repurpose using existing material to stop harmful fashion overproduction. Most important, the designers consider it a spiritual process as they believe items become found to be awakened by the finder. The detailed beauty of the collection expresses this awakening.
