Our passion for storytelling extends beyond the camera as the girls transform themselves into lithe ballerinas, floating through one of America’s oldest libraries. In good company with the stacks, they create a fairytale of their own, setting the scene with Little Creative Factory and Merchant & Mills.
This story began two years ago in the town of Rye, East Sussex, home of fabric wonderland, and patternmaker, Merchant & Mills. With The Skipper dress pattern in hand, and a willing seamstress at home (my Mother), we left with a few yards of Heather Haze linen for the girls’ bespoke pieces. My Mother’s busy hands gave life to these nautically inspired dresses that are as easy to wear as ballet slippers.
Little Creative Factory’s Degas Long Wrap Skirt adds a fresh touch and pays compliment to our ballet-inspired journey through the library. This long-admired brand hails from Barcelona and creates timeless pieces that bend the limits of imagination.
