Having been focused on ethical fashion since my conception of Swankety Swank as a bag maker in San Francisco circa 2003, I am noticing more and more momentum towards conscious consumerism. This is a good thing for global citizens of course. When all people are considered over profits, everyone wins. Continue reading →
We’ve added some fabulous new pieces to the shop, and we hope that you love them as much as we do. These pieces are designed to be sexy, versatile, and fun to wear.
In the spirit of sustainability and low waste, Yabette wanted to find ways to use the off-cut scraps of hemp that were left from her currents rolls. We love the way they came together as capelets. Some of them have added liners in luxuriously warm and strong hemp fleece making them deliciously cozy around the neck and shoulders. Perfect for a layer-happy city like San Francisco. We love the silhouette a capelet gives- emphasizing the shoulders in proportion to the waist. The use of the off-cuts makes each one of these capelets unique. Continue reading →
After a few hours of shooting some new pieces from the Hemp Collection, we moved outside to get our last couple shots. The light was absolutely perfect while Yabette was styling our model and muse, Bianca.
Yabette and Bianca met on an art project Yabette was working on. I remember her telling me about this super cool young woman she met…Yabette immediately thought she would make an awesome Swankety Swank model because she’s not only cool and gorgeous, she’s also a socially conscious creator who does work in the theater world as a performer and playwright among her other many abilities. (You should hear her sing!!) You can read more about Bianca here. Continue reading →
From the moment Bianca slipped into this gorgeous black dress, it was pure magic.
The hemp/organic cotton ribbed jersey stretch is super soft and the black bamboo/organic cotton is slightly see thru. It was obvious that our model and muse felt amazing in this dress. It has a light, airy quality that feels like a whisper on the skin.
But it still looks amazing and sexy all on its own.
If you are looking for a versatile piece that make you look and feel super hot at holiday get-togethers and super cool every other day of the year, this is the piece for you. The Eco Chic Peek Skirt Dress can also be worn as either a dress or a skirt, and features a sexy hi/low hem.
As I’ve been working this week on designs for an editorial print opportunity and feeling the San Francisco subtle signs of Autumn, I am thinking future, I am thinking bold, and feeling the mystic undertones of our planet. Here are a few of my inspirations to share.
I discovered this last Spring, but I cannot stop telling people about it as it’s such a clear front-runner of intelligent, artful entertainment by no less than the Wachowskis. Continue reading →
