Want ethically produced and unique plus size fashion? A Plus Market has got it for you!
After having an absolute ball at A Plus Market in May, the Madame Tây team will be back at the Preston market this November!
Madame Tây are are four friends from Melbourne, who are now living in four different corners of the globe – Melbourne, Toronto, Hanoi and Dakar.
Madame Tây creates unique, handmade garments by working closely with fabric distributers, designers and tailors from Vietnam, Senegal and Ghana. They source and design clothing from a beautiful range of fabrics, all sourced locally in the aforementioned countries. 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.
For the Madame Tây team, this project is not just about the finished product, it is also about the process. While they have a passion for beautiful clothes, they also have ideas and questions around ethics, culture, travel, fashion, global manufacturing, trade and consumption, that they hope to explore in this endeavour.
At the Preston market on November 29th, Madame Tây will have limited edition plus size pieces which are all perfect for summer! Lots of beautiful day dresses, camisoles, peplum tops and pencil skirts.
SATURDAY NOV 29 – 10am-3pm
DAREBIN NORTH WEST UNITING CHURCH HALL – 399A Murray Rd – Preston
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.
