Behind the Scenes - Adhesif Clothing's FW 2017

Yup, that's right...I said the F word FALL I hate to break it to you folks but in the world of most fashion designer's right now  that's where we've been hiding all Spring-Summer.  It's the irony of having to be at least one season forward in our industry, always thinking ahead... I collected, laundered and hung to dry 90 pounds of reclaimed wool sweaters back in May. Since then I've been feverishly working away on deconstructing all of the sweaters to create our fabric yardage to put towards the creation of our  Fall-Winter 2017 designs as well as other popular...

Gifting Local is the Gift that Keeps on Giving

I've been self employed and running my own business for well over a decade now and I can tell you as rewarding as it is to be your own boss, it's a path less chosen for reason. Being a self employed designer (or self employed anything really) presents a a slough of daily challenges. I think the biggest of those challenges is consistently educating the mainstream on the differences between handmade, slow culture which at it's heart is about quality over quantity versus mass produced, cheaply made products found at big box chain stores. Fortunately I have had many opportunities...

Street Steez + Stylish Folks

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to people watch. I get a tonne of inspiration when I see someone doing their own thing with their style.   I often stop people who come into my shop, at my events and on the street when I see them putting together a unique look or if they're wearing something that stands out, then I take their picture if they're into it...

My slight obsession with vintage shoes!

I admit it...I have a HUGE obsession with vintage shoes and I am always building on my own personal collection. I am really into any kind of "winklepickers", "oxford styles" as well as the "granny boot" In the 1960's the winklepicker toe was very popular with mods.They made a comeback in the late 1970s and early 1980s when they were sold at London indoor markets like Kensington Market and Chelsea's Great Gear Market and worn by several subculture groups including Mod Revivalists, Rockabillies, Punks, and in the goth scene, where they are known as "pikes". The great thing about winklepickers, oxford styles as...
