'Active wear' in the new BESTOWED Pre-Summer Collection
Posted on August 18 2016
Well after lots of craziness, the Bestowed Pre-Summer Collection is all ready and many of the regular customers have been enjoying the new styles already. The Fern print has been a nice addition to the Bestowed Collection, adding a different element. Finally I found the perfect fabric to make garments that cross over from exercise to everyday wear.
I have been doing 5 Pilates sessions a week over the past year and found that I needed clothes that I could do Pilates or Yoga in as well as work and do my every day activities. I don't like the look of 'active wear' and also I am allergic to synthetic fabrics (polyester, polyamide, meryl, nylon, acrylic etc etc) so it made sense for me to create garments that were natural fibres and the way I wanted them to look. I wanted to have coverage over the hips but not be too baggy. So I designed a couple of garments to do exactly that.
This is the Maggie skirt/pant style, which is essentially an overskirt attached to leggings. This pic shows the Maggie skirt/pant with a Tansy top, then layered with a Perla long sleeve top or Swivel top and cocoon shrug and slider belt.
This Maggie style is super comfy, looks cute on and is a flattering style. It comes in fern or shadow coloured print, both on a black base of Australian made stretch organic cotton (shadow print in these pics).
All Bestowed Clothing is cotton, yes it's vegan friendly, natural and 100% Australian made.
I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I am.
