SUSTAINABILTY: Titania Inglis, new designer to MADE
Produced entirely in a small factory in New York from sustainably sourced fabrics and dead stock wool from the city’s garment industry, Brooklynite Titania Inglis’s "less, but better" aesthetic won her the 2012 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award in Sustainable Design.
For AW13, she showed a capsule collection of floor-skimming, bias cut evening dresses in black and taupe, worn with dramatic furs, knitted cuffs and delicate pieces of gold tribal jewelry by Nettie Kent, and neat, structural daytime separates. An knitted sleeveless sweater with outsize armholes was layered over pencil thin leather jeans, an asymmetric jersey dress was toughened up with a leather muscle top collar and plaid pants came super-wide or cropped. Two standout pieces of outerwear meanwhile, were a wrap-around asymmetric cape and a fitted wool biker jacket with a white fur shawl collar, which appeared atop a black and white fur puffball skirt.
