a collection inspired by womankind, an ode to our strength, our resilience & our sisterhood.
designed in collaboration with SisterWorks - a social enterprise that supports female refugees, asylum seekers or migrants to become economically empowered.
this collaboration is produced by the talented sewers, Amira & Farah, from SisterWorks. due to COVID-19 & Stage 4 restrictions in Melbourne, initial production units were made in-house by Simone & instead 10% of the sales from these first pieces were donated to SisterWorks. however now that restrictions are lifted, current & ongoing production batches are now made by the ladies themselves of which they receive payment per unit they produce. the more demand we receive for this collection, the more work we can provide them.
the artwork, screen printed with earth friendly dyes, was created by the incredibly talented illustrative artist, Bianca Balliro, which pays homage to the beautifully diverse female form & sisterhood.
each piece is crafted from linen canvas and sewn with GOTS certified organic cotton thread.
