Madeit Fashion Week: Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of Madeit Fashion Week

Sadly this is the last day of Fashion Shows for 2015, tomorrow there will be a round up over at Swoodson Says and Climbing the Willow. This has been so much fun I might just sneak in a little eye candy or two tomorrow, but just for all you VIPs out there.

Thank you so much for tuning in on Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4 and Day 5. I hope you have enjoyed the shows even half as much as I have.

Now sit back, enjoy the music and marvel the amazing creations hitting the runway today.

Matrix Polo and Pocket Fold Trousers made by Fruits de Mere. Pattern by Madeit PatternsFirst up we have Dino, he is 3 years old, he likes the beach, pancakes and everything in red. He dislikes mushrooms, brushing his teeth and tidying up his toys.

They say ‘you are what you eat’, I don’t think Dino is a pancake. But men like meat and women like sweets, so draw your own conclusions.

Madeit Fashion Week: Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of Madeit Fashion Week

Day 1Day 2Day 3 and Day 4 were incredible. The origami was fierce. The outfits were stunning. The kids rocked. The shows have delivered on every level and today we have 4 more completely amazing shows, the question is ‘can you handle it?’

Grab your seats ladies and gents, the show is about to begin…

dianaJust look at Manuel, what a star. He is 8 years old, he likes building Lego, meatballs and riding his bike. He dislikes cleaning his room, grilled cheese and scary movies. Though he certainly looks like a guy who can handle a scary movie.

Manuel is wearing a Kite Fold Tee, with Book Fold Trousers. Check him out on the runway at Miss Castelinhos Continue reading

Madeit Fashion Week: Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of Madeit Fashion Week

If you missed Day 1Day 2 or Day 3 you can still see the shows [click on the link] I’m sure you knew that anyway.

Today we have not 1, not 2, but 6 shows, yes you heard it, 6 shows to get you in the party mood. If you’re not excited already, you will be. The ladies behind the sewing machines SMASHED IT!

So come on, let’s get this party started…

Mariea Fairies annd Bubbles2

Give it up for F. F is 6 years old.  She likes drawing, making others laugh and reading. She dislikes being on her own, people asking loads of questions (hint, hint) and scary movies.

I like scary movies if it means I can sit on the couch and loose weight. Research suggests that raised adrenalin levels when we watch scary movies, increase our metabolic rate. We burn a third more calories than usual while in a state of fear, that could be the equivalent of a small chocolate bar. Guess what I’m doing tonight? Continue reading

Finally here, FOLD|2 the new collection from Madeit Patterns

Some of you already know that I became partners with Anna Bruce at Madeit Patterns at the beginning of this year. Right away we got to work, and now I am finally ready to show you the result.


I could go on about how hard we worked, mostly through the night for the last 7 months putting a collection together.


I could spend hours explaining each and every beautiful piece and how it is constructed.

I could talk about when things went right and when things went wrong. And the joys of creating a new look for our website.

I could tell you how incredibly proud I am of our new collection.

But I am just going to let the collection do the talking, not me.

Head on over to our new look website and immerse yourself in FOLD|2 the new collection from Madeit Pattterns, inspired by the Japanese art of origami. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Hold up, wait a minute.

But before you go I have some thanking to do. There is no way I could have done all this on my own.
