THE SLOW-FASH­ION FIND

Grazia Middle East - - THE HOT STORIES -

“Au­then­tic, trans­par­ent and true,” re­flects Marie Dewet, one half of the mother and daugh­ter duo Mai­son Cléo. Mother Cléo is the seam­stress be­hind the hand­made cre­ations that have flown off the e-shelves of their web­site that only opens for one day a week. “Our cus­tomer is a girl who cares about what she con­sumes and wants qual­ity as well,” con­tin­ues Dewet. “We don’t use syn­thetic fab­rics. She can be any size as we make ev­ery piece to or­der.” On a re­cent In­sta­gram Story, Dewet broke down the cost of a sold-out blouse that was made us­ing 1.5 me­tres of fab­ric and took three hours to con­struct. How won­der­ful to see ex­actly how our money is be­ing spent. Smart, savvy, and im­pos­si­bly cool, is how we would de­scribe Mai­son Cléo. We can’t wait to see what will come from the French brand in 2019.
