The latest @Atelier kajanistudio
Capsule 4 is here! You can view it all on the Collection page. Wonderful pieces to incorporate into any wardrobe, with some special must have items. We're taking early orders and offering a bonus for those who place and order now. Of course, it’s Fashion for Keeps.
This new group is vibrant, fun and beautiful - playful and practical pieces that we hope you'll enjoy wearing for a long time.
+ All of our capsule collections are see now, order now, wear now ... or whenever you desire. Because that's the future of fashion as we see it. Small Batch - Sustainable - Seasonless - Timeless - Ethically and Beautifully Made.

DID YOU KNOW that our blog is on hiatus ... it may come-back, it may not. We're (rather, I am) trying to determine if I can still make time for this and is it worth writing ... we might just move to a monthly or quarterly newsletter.
Changes continue to unfold in the world of fashion. Sustainability and conscious commerce are now playing a bigger role, thank goodness. Business as usual is no longer cutting it, nor is it sustainable. However, mass produced, unconscious, fast-fashion continues to thrive ... based on demand. Perhaps this will change along the way ... this is just the beginning. (See the blog 18 issue for more on this story) You may know, we have not (@kajanistudio) played by the fashion rules for some time, finding them stifling—too much—too fast—uninspiring—devaluing. We want intimacy, meaning, special-ness, beauty, the preservation of the craft of apparel making. We made it a part of our campaign a couple of years ago. We make fashion for keeps and we want you to feel good about it and feel good in it, for a long time. Hope you’ve been enjoying the results of our Slow-Fashion labor of love. Things are evolving...
My Top 10 Must-Have Items Now 1. Liberty Print Maxi Dress, 2. Solid or Print, Cotton Midi Dress, 3. The Dirndl Skirt, 4. Bow-Tied Neck Blouse, 5. Something WHITE, dress, blouse, 6. Something Velvet, Dress or Blouse, 7. The Shrunken Boy-Blazer in any of the fabulous fabrics, it's obvious one, 8. The Little Quilted Jacket, yes, still! 9. A New Mini Dress, the simple black silk one with pockets is a perfect choice to wear for a long time. 10. The New Ruffle Wrap Skirt, because it'll make you want to dance! But if it's too wild for you, go with a more subdued style like a Liberty Swing Skirt or A Pencil Skirt.
Your input means so much. Contact us to share your own thoughts and ask questions on fashion, style, shopping, wearing, or anything else ... stay connected.

We hope you'll love wearing them.
