Wool in the Dales

Yorkshire Post

Great article about our fashion show with Izzy Lane and Joan Murray for the Kettlewell May Fest.

Stephanie Smith highlights all the great things that make wool a sustainable (and local) option and the work of designers who aren't just making jumpers.

There are some beautiful photos of our wedding dresses too!

Makepiece Autumn Winter 2013

Knitted braided back dress
Chiarascuro, Makepiece's Autumn Winter 2013 collection uses light and dark to create flattering lines and shapes. From our stunning show piece skirts to practical and warm knitted dresses, this collection knits a magic spell of illusion using light and dark to illuminate the shapes we love and dim the bits we don't. This is a truly womanly collection, celebrating the feminine form and loving the limelight.
Bold blocks are curved in all the right places by clever knit construction and smart fashionings, to create shapes that draw the eye and flatter the figure. From a little vest that nips in the waist with its optical magic to the gorgeous flourish of a full length knitted fishtail skirt that gives height and hips to all.
Our softer grisaille detail diffuses light and softens the silhouette, applied as a detail on shrug cuffs or deployed in the construction of our luxuriously warm cowl necked dress to emphasise an hourglass shape. 
Graphic braiding creates a dramatic counterpoint, drawing the eye to sensuous shoulders and beautiful backs in vests, tops and dresses.
These are pieces to last for many winters - whether you choose a winter shrug to warm (and change) an outfit or one of our striking winter dresses - these pieces are dramatic, glamorous and warm! Makepiece clothes of knitted wonderment.
