The Secret Behind Our Versatile Cruise Dresses

Posted on July 29 2016

Our customers often ask me where we source our materials from as they love how soft and comfortable our products feel on the skin. Since the material we use and where we source it is a big part of making quality and timeless versatile fashion clothing, that we design and stand for, it is time to share the secret with you.

We always make sure we only use the best material that is durable, feels good on the skin and is still fashionable.  We searched high and low for suppliers that not only offered great yarns but also had a big variety of traditional and fancy yarns to choose from with low quantity order minimums. We finally decided on Consinee and now we source most of our yarns from them. In addition to Consinee, we also source from other suppliers from Italy, France and Japan when we need a special look and texture for the yarn. But the majority of what we use comes from Consinee. 

Consinee Group, founded in July 2000, integrates the design, development, production, logistics, import and export of dyeing, woolen fabrics, worsted fabrics, semi worsted fabrics, novelty yarn, and polymer materials (special yarns). The company provides more than 3,500 tons of yarn to the specialized high-end market annually, accounting for more than 10% of the world's cashmere production.

Last week, my friends, family and I attended an event hosted by the Consinee Group inviting their clients aboard a cruise for an evening out on the Hudson River in New York, with dinner and drinks. 



The Consinee cruise was a perfect collision of our two worlds, the source and the end product. I got to show off my designs on my friends and family, while interacting with fellow consumers and the Chairman of Consinee himself. Even though it was a very hot day, our knit reversible dresses kept us really cool on the cruise, all thanks to the very high quality yarn that we use and also the very breathable nature of knitwear. 

Here are a few pictures from the event:

The Adalina reversible dress is so comfortable that we had no problem dancing with kids on the cruise!

We're glad we don't have to keep this secret any longer! We hope you appreciate how we always strive for the best quality in our designs.
