Before the doors opened for the day, Helen went to drop-off some accessories (Elsa Schiaparelli hat and vintage gloves) for Styleby Dona for possible inclusion in (what turned out to be one of the best runways of VFW) Romielle show. There she met and befriended Zuhal Kuvan-Mills of Green Embassy designs that use only 100% certified alpaca wool.
“Australia’s first internationally recognized organic ‘slow’ fashion label, the garments have Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) certification, the leading standard for quality assurance in organic textiles manufacturing in the world. Each Green Embassy garment is a hand-made labor of love and extraordinarily unique. Green Embassy is an haute-couture label that celebrates the spirit of sustainability in every sense of the word!”
Zuhal offered Helen her choice of dresses to wear on Day 3 and so many were tried with one being successful.
