My very talented friend Ana of Dreamy Isabel showed her work at Vancouver Fashion Week recently. The big difference between Ana's work and most other people who show at shows like these is that her work is all made by hand from scratch. Yes that means everything is hand-dyed and most of the fabrics begin as a mere thread of yarn or piece of fleece which are then felted or woven by hand. All I can say is WOW.
