One of my favourite dresses at the moment is by Textilehaus. Textilehaus was founded by Anastasiya Yatsuk, who grew up in Russia. As a child she was only allowed to buy clothes twice a year, Summer and Winter. Before she was allowed to buy something, she had to make a sample of it and give it to her mother. Anastasiya developed a great appreciation of the time and skill required when making clothing and chose versatile items that would compliment her existing wardrobe. Anastasiya then went on to earn a Fine Arts degree in the USA and used the skills learned to create Textilehaus.
Her first collection embodies the same qualities that she learned growing up, timeless style and superior workmanship. This seasons textiles are responsibly imported from Japan, sourced from high quality factories and selected for their exceptionally soft touch.
The clothing is designed and produced in San Fransisco, California and she works with small batch, local manufacturers to sew each garment.
My dress, the Kimono Dress in black microsuede feels so great against my skin. It is classically inspired by the ease and geometry of the Asian garment. Though simple, this dress reveals attention to detail in the slightly dropped hem and twisting shoulder seam. The microsuede fabric is incredibly soft to the touch while providing the stretch and comfort you need to move about during your day.
