A Plus Market – Preston May 31 is also going to be home for a day to this awesome label Madame Tây.
Madame Tây is a ‘local’ label with a difference, this clothing project was conceived by four friends from Melbourne who now live in four different cities – Toronto, Hanoi, Dakar and Melbourne.
Working with small-business tailors in Vietnam and Senegal they create simple, handmade, ethically-produced garments.
For the four friends, this project is not just about the finished product, it is also about the process.
As a collective they say,
“While we have a passion for beautiful clothes, we also have ideas and questions around ethics, culture, travel, fashion, global manufacturing, trade and consumption, that we hope to explore in this endeavour.”
If you purchase a Madame Tây item, you can easily trace your garment’s origins back to the individual tailor who made it, and learn about the place where your item came from.
At A Plus Market – Preston on the 31st of May, Madame Tây will be showcasing a limited edition series of plus size garments in beautiful wax print sourced in Ghana and Senegal, including simple camisoles, cute peplum tops and a small range of dresses.
