A Green-pro Designer for Custom Couture
Well it’s not common knowledge, but custom green couture is an expanding service. Existing and famed designers are shifting from conventional materials and some like Crystal Miler have been at it from the start.
Crystal, proprietor and designer of Conscious Clothing in New Mexico, started specializing in hemp wedding attire more than a decade ago. She is a hemp maestro who favors it with a Tencel® blend. “I just love the way it drapes and resists wrinkling,” explains Crystal.
Tencel® begins with cellulose which is processed with a nontoxic, recyclable dissolving agent, making a minimal environmental impact. Hempcel® is a registered name for a 55% hemp and 45% Tencel® fiber blend that provides a beautiful flow. Hemp silk is typically integrated into Crystal’s design details and for one-of-a-kind features, hand silk embroidery done in Chiapas, Mexico can be embellished onto a custom garment.
Couture garments are cut and sewn to order, each with exquisite attention to detail. As you can imagine, most of her clients are upcoming brides. Many of those brides want a design that carries them beyond a wedding. So with one tailor-made desire leading to another, Crystal has the customization process streamlined to perfection.
See Crystal’s Custom Designs page to read the four-step details. Her method satisfies local and distant clients, starting with discussion and sketches.
Eco-savy people take pride in their environmental concerns. Today they can express themselves with more social support than ever before. It’s so very natural to show respect for earth with special eco-green attire during special occasions.
