Searching For Sustainable, Colourful and Feminine Fashion? Look No Further Than Grace Weller

by Oana-Maria Moldovan

In a world where fashion and sustainability used to be like distant cousins, a breath of fresh air has arrived in the form of Grace Weller.

The fashion label has been making waves with its unique blend of romantic aesthetics, sustainability, and a strong emphasis on the feminine sensuality and power motifs.

Grace Weller embarked on her fashion journey by initially creating custom garments in her studio, showcasing an exquisite flair for creativity and style.

Today, her brand has evolved to offer modern ready-to-wear pieces that capture the essence of her vision. Her designs stand as a testament to the idea that fashion can be both beautiful and sustainable.

Weller's creations seamlessly mix the ethereal allure of an old romantic attire with playful fabrics, vibrant colors, and intricate details.

This fusion results in a unique style that resonates with those who appreciate the elegance of fashion. The pieces exude not only visual appeal but also a strong sense of femininity and power.

As mentioned, one of the cornerstones of Grace Weller's brand is its commitment to sustainability. Weller employs hand-made techniques and follows a circular fashion approach, minimizing the impact on the environment.

This dedication to eco-conscious practices sets her brand apart in an industry often criticized for its wastefulness.

A romantic sensibility runs through the very fibers of the Grace Weller brand. Weller drapes and twists antique and vintage textiles, reworking them through a contemporary lens.

This infusion of history with modernity creates a striking visual appeal that captures the essence of a time-honored elegance. This is exactly way, Weller's romanticism works so well in the brand's image, if we think of the historical connotations of this specific attire.

The romantic period in fashion became what is known today after the French Revolution. This was due to the desire of the working class of France to preserve its newly recovered identity.

For the 19th Century, the romanticism in fashion represented that class no longer dictated the trends, beauty enthusiasts did. So, it's quite a beautiful metaphor, the way Weller creates these designs.

Grace Weller's designs don't stop at the past; they also embrace the future. Merging the fabrics with oversized proportions and intricate layers of sheer crochet, Weller's creations offer a subtle sense of new age womanhood.

By employing these textiles in combination with modern embellishment techniques, she manages to create bold and exciting evening wear pieces alongside contemporary ready-to-wear garments.

The ethos of the Grace Weller brand revolves around creativity and originality. Weller's hand-made techniques and designs are crafted to transcend the constraints of seasons and trends. In a world of ever-changing fashion fads, her pieces are built to stand the test of time.

As Grace Weller's lucky star continues to rise, fashion enthusiasts and eco-conscious individuals alike will undoubtedly be keeping a keen eye on her creations.

Grace Weller is not just another fashion label; it's a celebration of artistry, sustainability, and the enduring appeal of timeless elegance, in a contemporary period.

Eurydice’s Last Words

by Kate Bradley I do not want to return To sit in the stalls, Of an empty black box Strewn with petals Leave the ghost light on, Let it shine like a call home, But I will not come back To turn it off alone. I learn this as we walk Our ever so solemn path Our thudding funeral march, You think we’re going back. As I trace my old steps, I fear of the day When the symphony swells, And I land my gaze On you, yet you will be Enraptured by the sound, If you did twist To turn around, You would not see me. So I am not sorry, I speak out into the empty air And I am not sorry. “Turn Around.” You do, you look You think  I fall But I run on, Arms wide open To fall in love With it all “Perhaps she was the one who said, ‘Turn around.” On the X45 bus, back from the Tyneside Cinema, I wrote a poem entitled “Eurydice’s Final Words”, after having seen “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”.  That poem was terrible, so I wrote a new one, as my response to the beautifully poignant film.  In one scene, Héloïse, an 18

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’
