There are some interesting tie dye pieces in the market this season and one of the designers that I’ve been interested in lately is Rika at opening ceremony. Tie dye fabric is raw and the results are unexpected, making every piece unique as it is made out of different parts of the fabric. Seeing all these hand dyed fabric has reminded me that I use to like doing Shiborizome and brush dyeing when I was in school. So I was motivated me to put what I have learnt into good use…
I am a pretty picky consumer actually. I am always stuck in situations like : I wish they had this in this color, I wish they had mint green instead of lime green…or pink instead of orange…etc. I can never find the perfect item and when I do, they are often way past my budget. So I guess dyeing my own simple tank tops in colors I like would be a solution for me right now.
