THE SLOW-FASHION FIND
“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.
