It is no secret that the fashion industry plays a big part towards harsh impacts on the environment. I was watching "War on Waste" recently and in one episode they displayed a giant 6 tonne, 2 story high pile of clothes in the center of Martin Place and stated that this is how much textile Australian’s throw away every 10 minutes!
I found this quite confronting and I knew I wanted to change my own purchasing and production ways. This inspired me to create clothes solely from old fabric scraps from my studio and old clothes in an effort to further reduce waste in my own production process. I took these pieces to a few local markets and the response was amazing! People loved the designs and were so inspired and loved that they had all been made from recycled fabrics.
So this brings us to my online store. I wanted to give more people the opportunity to purchase these one off pieces right here if they cant make it to the markets.
I have seen on multiple occasions women struggle to find the perfect size. Its also hard when sizing standards vary between designers. I also don't like the stigma attached to the number that sits in the back of the garment.
So here at Bethany Alice there are NO SIZE NUMBERS. That's right no size number to find what fits. Instead I have designed 2 gorgeous women who you will discover to be your best fit. Those 2 women are called Marilyn and Adele both named after my gorgeous mannequins.
I have designed the pieces to be quite loose so the size is more relaxed. So that means Marilyn fits sizes 6-12 and Adele fits sizes 14-18. The size guide below also shows which size will suit you best.
