DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CLOTHES COME FROM? THE STYLE HOUSE TV WITH PEGGY SUE DEAVEN-SMILTNIEKS

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CLOTHES COME FROM? THE STYLE HOUSE TV WITH PEGGY SUE DEAVEN-SMILTNIEKS

I have found deep peace within knowing that nature is stronger, more profound, and honest in its incredible existence than anything man-made.

It can be easy to dismiss fashion as frivolous until you speak with someone like designer Peggy Sue Deaven-Smiltnieks. In addition to beautiful designs, Peggy Sue's eponymous label champions slow fashion, local sources and environmental sustainability – a business model that marries the talents of farmers and weavers with the aesthetic demands of consumers. This winning combination earned her the TFI New Labels's award in 2016 and garnered her much press. Watch below to take a look at her stunning designs and listen to her philosophy as to how we can each play a role in choosing clothes that respect people, traditions and the land.
