SKYLARK is conscious design.
Progressing from the concept of 'sustainable design' SKYLARK is a brand producing mindful pieces that combine the careful consideration of Zero-Waste pattern design with Slow Fashion developed textiles. This design aesthetic has been adapted to a contemporary fashion context through the use of modern fashion technologies. Conceptually, SKYLARK is inspired by the clean feel of Nordic design and specifically the strong connection to nature. Norwegian folk art to seasonal landscape are the source of design development.
The main patterning process used at SKYLARK to produce mindfully designed garments. The method involves designing garments in a way that when their patterns are laid flat they interlock together to use entirely of a given piece of fabric - thus minimising any waste through the production of the garment.
Slow Fashion Principles
These principles are inspired by the Slow Fashion Movement that can be summarised as slowing fashion consumption down to choose quality of quantity. An interest in embroidery and traditional Nordic folk art has led this to be an important part of the SKYLARK aesthetic to create something precious.
